Say NO to Dreamgirls especially Bitchoncé. :p

I just saw Little Miss Sunshine, what a FANTASTIC film. I'll be really happy if anyone gets awarded for that film but especially the little girl Abigail Breslin.

I think The Departed has a great chance for Picture and Scorsese for Director.

I'm a big fan of Bill Condon so I don't mind if he wins something. I like Eddie Murphy too but the rest, no thanks. It looks like some of the songs are fun. But we'll see if it's as good as Chicago. :)

Meryl's performance in The Devil Wears Prada is definitely Oscar-worthy. ;)

The Departed is Scorcese's biggest hit in years and was a wonderful film. I'm sure that will pick up a few.

Pan's Labyrinth has yet to open in the UK but it's had rave reviews. Could this be a lock for Best Foreign Language film?

Also the Academy has released their shortlist for Best Animated Feature:

The Wild
Flushed Away
Over The Hedge
Barnyard
Open Season
The Ant Bully
Happy Feet
Ice Age: The Meltdown
Cars
Everyone's Hero
Monster House
Curious George
A Scanner Darkly
Arthur and the Invisibles
Paprika
Renaissance

A few of these still need to fulfill their entry requirements but if they do then this year will have five nominees instead of three. I've not seen most of these but I have seen A Scanner Darkly and hope that wins.

Weren't you the one who suspected about the Foreign Oscar for Germany due to the split of votes between Volver and El laberinto del fauno??? I think that is a real possibility :o
But I think/hope both Volver and El laberinto will grab some other nomination out of best foreign film.

I think Helen Mirren will win for The Queen, but look out for me in Best Supporting Actress category! I'm campaigning vigorously this year with my role in the upcoming classic The Last Guy On Earth. I showed it to the Oscar voters and whenever I came on the screen their jaws literally dropped. I'm assuming in awe.

The Spirit Awards nominations are released.

"Sunshine," "Half Nelson" lead indie film nominees By Dean Goodman
33 minutes ago

LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - The hit road comedy "Little Miss Sunshine" and the acclaimed drug-addiction drama "Half Nelson" led the list of contenders on Tuesday for the Independent Spirit Awards, the American art-house world's version of the Oscars.

Each film scored five nominations, including best feature and best director. Another contender in the latter category was maverick filmmaker Robert Altman, who died last week at age 81. The director, a major figure in independent filmmaking, was cited for his last film, "A Prairie Home Companion."

Four films, none of them with much name recognition, landed three nominations each: "American Gun," a drama detailing the consequences of gun-related violence; "The Dead Girl," an as-yet-unreleased drama about the female victims of a serial killer; "A Guide to Recognizing Your Saints," a coming-of-age memoir set in New York; and "Man Push Cart," a U.S.-Iranian co-production about an immigrant coffee vendor.

The Spirit Awards, in their 22nd year, honor low-budget films based on such criteria as original, provocative subject matter and degree of independent financing. Winners will be unveiled on February 24, the day before the Academy Awards.

There is usually some crossover among nominees for the two awards, but little common ground among the winners. Last year was an exception because Oscar voters recognized a slew of low-budget films, such as "Crash," "Brokeback Mountain" and "Capote," which also were honored at the Spirit Awards.

"Little Miss Sunshine," a crowd-pleaser starring Steve Carell and Greg Kinnear, revolves around a family's cross-country trip to attend a girls' beauty pageant. Five years in the making, it marked the feature directing debut of music video veterans Jonathan Dayton and Valerie Faris.

SUCCESS NO BAR

Two of its stars, Alan Arkin and Paul Dano, will compete against each other for the supporting male award. Arkin played a drug-addicted grandfather, and Dano a taciturn teen. Additionally, rookie screenwriter Michael Arndt was nominated for best first screenplay. Arndt wrote 100 drafts of the screenplay before he got it right.

The film cost $8 million to make and earned $58 million at the North American box office, making it a rare mainstream hit to be honored at an event that likes to focus on under-the-radar offerings.

"We try not to penalize movies for their success," said Dawn Hudson, executive director of event organizer Film Independent, a Los Angeles-based group that fosters indie movies. "We're not elitist. We just like good films and original films, which 'Little Miss Sunshine' is."

The searing drama "Half Nelson" stars Ryan Gosling as a drug-addicted teacher who forms a special bond with one of his high school students. It earned $2.7 million at the box office.

First-time filmmaker Ryan Fleck was nominated for best director and first screenplay (along with co-writer Anna Boden). Gosling, who won raves several years ago for playing a Jewish neo-Nazi in "The Believer," was nominated for best male lead. Shareeka Epps, who plays a student with a troubled home life, was nominated for best female lead.

Other best feature nominees were "American Gun," "The Dead Girl" and the violent post-Spanish Civil War fantasy "Pan's Labyrinth." The other nominated directors were Karen Moncrieff for "The Dead Girl" and Steven Soderbergh for his study of mid-American ennui, "Bubble."

Besides Gosling, the male lead contenders were Aaron Eckhart ("Thank You For Smoking"), Edward Norton ("The Painted Veil"), Pakistani actor Ahmad Razvi ("Man Push Cart"), and Forest Whitaker ("American Gun").

In the female lead category, Epps will vie for honors with Catherine O'Hara ("For Your Consideration"), Elizabeth Reaser ("Sweet Land"), Michelle Williams ("Land of Plenty"), and Robin Wright Penn ("Sorry, Haters").
