It is one of the best reviewed films of the year...but many thought that Volver would get that nomination instead ... Interesting early developments in the Oscar race... many thought Little Miss Sunshine would be the "IT" Indie of the year, but Half Nelson is running away with the spotlight.



Anyway Letters from Iwo Jima from Clint Eastwood seems to be creating a lot of Oscar hype as well. It's even getting an earlier release just for Oscar consideration ala Million Dollar Baby.

I don't know how the Independent Spirit nominations are carried out but can they not nominate two Spanish language films for Best Picture? I haven't seen any of the other Best Picture nominees yet so can't comment on how they compare.

I think they can (even at the Oscars) but two nominations going to foreign films is very rare to see, let alone if both are Spanish speaking films. Well I really hope El Laberinto del Fauno wins as I think is a better film than Half Nelson.

I haven't seen either 'The Queen' or 'Little Children', but Helen has received rave reviews, and so has the film, you're right though, LC hasn't been promoted enough I don't think, as of now, I only see a nomination, but things can change...

but Volver didn´t win "best Picture" on European Film Awards
Volver just won the "people choice Award" as best Film

the commentator said that for the first time the critics have been not that good for a Almodovar Film, but the people love the film.

but we all know Foreign Movie Oscar has a lot to too with politics too
one country could make 5 times in a row the best foreign film, but wouldn´t win all 5 times. because when a country has won the year before, it has nearly no chance to win the next 2 years.

here is an article on The Lives Of Others

The Lives of Others - One of the Best Films of the Year

The Lives of Others, the German Foreign Language entry may in fact be one of 2006's very best offerings. If enough people see it, it could end up expanding beyond its foreign language category (it will most certainly be nominated) to perhaps screenplay (as Anne Thompson is predicting) and original score. If it were up to me, the actors would be nominated, especially Ulrich Mühe as the interrogator who grows a heart as a result of his surveillance of writer/actress couple. The Lives of Others tackles such weighty subject matter as freedom of speech, the primal need for human contact, creative inspiration, love, art - and, of course, the chokehold of fear when the truth threatens to bring down a misguided (shall we say) government.
The Lives of Others is a real threat to Volver for Foreign Language - it reminds me of when Amelie was up against No Man's Land. Volver is a wonderful film though it isn't Almodovar's best. It already beat Volver at the Euro Oscars and will likely be the champion at the 79th. Just a heads up, Oscarwatchers.

The National Board of Review awards:

Awards for 2006:
Best Film
Letters From Iwo Jima

Top Ten Films
Letters From Iwo Jima, (and, in alphabetical order) Babel, Blood Diamond, The Departed, The Devil Wears Prada, Flags Of Our Fathers, The History Boys, Little Miss Sunshine, Notes On A Scandal, The Painted Veil


Oh my god, do they love Clint Eastwood or what? I thought the reviews for Flags weren't that great which is why Letters got brought forward because it turned out to be the better film. But Flags is in their Top 10. Can Clint do no wrong?

The only one on this list I've seen so far is The Departed which is one of my favorites for the year. I'm very interested to see Babel, a bit dubious about Leo's South African accent in Blood Diamond and people keep raving about Little Miss Sunshine.

Flags was a terrible fucking movie. If someone else other than Clint had directed it, it would've been buried under a pile of shit like it deserves. But yeah, Clint can do no wrong in their eyes.

I feel the same way regarding Leo's accent.

Little Miss Sunshine is like an idie movie for people who don't watch indie movies. It's nothing special if you are used to movies like that. It's pretty unoriginal.

I'll be very interested to see this whenever it finally makes it to the UK. Slightly surprised to see it make this list though. I've heard it's Lynch's most out-there movie since Eraserhead. Certainly one to split opinion but that's part of the fun of these critics awards.

For me Children of Men fails to fully explore its central premise and is ultimately just a chase movie. Cast is certainly very good but what makes it really worth seeing are the outstanding long one-take setpieces, in particular the roadblock where they are attacked and Clive Owen wandering through the war-torn streets of Bexhill dodging bullets. Imagine what Cuaron could do on a proper war movie. Deserves its awards for cinematography and production design.

I think Jennifer Hudson is a shoe in for a Golden Globe as Best Actress for a Comedy/ Musical.

The "supporting" was a typo on my part. I was looking at all of her other supporting actress nominations at that moment. There was really no need for the BAS comment. ANYWAYS...i guess this is a BDUA:angel: for you. Commenting to the above. I know this. I thought this was implied being we are all film fans in here. Anyway... I was just giving my opinion on the seperated categories. :) If the studio thinks Jennifer can win the more prestigious Lead Actress award then Miss Jennifer Hudson will be submitted for best lead actress in a comedy/musical ...not supporting...but only at the Globes. I personally think this will happin. I also think that the Globes should seperate there drama and comedy categorys aswell as the tv and movie supporting performances. :wavey:

Oscar hopefuls hit by Bafta rule

A rule change means Oscar hopefuls Clint Eastwood, Robert De Niro and George Clooney cannot be entered for the 2007 Bafta film awards.

Bafta has decided only movies released in the UK before its ceremony on 11 February are eligible, instead of the end of March, as in previous years. Some of the major titles expected to do well at the Academy Awards will have to wait until 2008 to compete for a Bafta.

The films affected include Eastwood's wartime drama Letters from Iwo Jima.

Full story (http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/entertainment/6168445.stm)


Seems like a poor decision to me. The Baftas are the British Oscars and the ceremony always used to be after the Oscars. Then a few years ago it was decided to move them in front of the Academy Awards to make them more relevant and become part of the big build-up. Today's decision looks like going against that move. If Letters from Iwo Jima gets nominated at the 2008 Baftas it's going to seem a little pointless.

i mean,she's already the most nominated actor in oscar history and she still seems to be going strong! besides she hasn't won one in yearsssss(only been nominated endlessly) so i think she is capable of an upset too over mirren(not really an upset considering she's an accomplished veteran herself,far better than even mirren and winslet combined and has anyone seen out of africa? oh my god it was so goooooddddd).actually i sort of secretly wish meryl wins for the devil wears prada(which is a change because its been a while since a largely and primarily comedic film won for an acting award).

I would LOVE for Kate Winslet to win. She is so young and has already been nominated a number of times. If not this time I hope she eventually gets it.

Foreign language seems like the big thing this year.

Best foreign language film
Apocalypto (US)
Letters From Iwo Jima (US)
The Lives of Others (Germany)
Pan's Labyrinth (Mexico)
Volver (Spain)

Slightly surprised there are no noms for United 93.

Was it really necessary to nominate Clint twice in Best Director?

And I think Helen Mirren got nominated for everything she was in this year! Just give her the award already!

Is Renee Zellweger really good in Miss Potter or could they think of no-one else to vote for? I saw the trailer for this last week and it looks horrendous but maybe it'll surprise me.

Nice to see Wahlberg got nominated. I thought he stole most of the scenes he was in. The studios have got the ads out now - giving him the Oscar push.

LOL @ Bobby being nom'd for Best Picture. WTF? That movie was god awful. If it wasn't for Shia and the lovely Princeton Garden theatre I saw it in, I would've left it. I've seen all the other Best Picture movies and that one is by far the weakest.

And the awards really need to get off Clint's cock cos it's old and wrinkly and his movies are a fucking bore.

Saw Last King of Scotland last night. Forest Whitaker deserves any awards going - he was fantastic. Apart from his physical build he doesn't really look like Idi Amin but he is able to make you forget that and he becomes the man.

James McAvoy is really the lead in this film though. He does a good job with a character who is hard to sympathise with at times because of his actions. He's not being pushed for Oscars but I think it's possible he will be recognised at the BAFTAs.

I had a minor reservation about a scene towards the end of the film but overall I thought it was an engrossing and disturbing film.

Another win for Helen, Forest, and Jennifer. It's kind of a shock that Bill won BD considering he was snubbed @ the globes, and I kind of expected another film to win BP, but it seems that Dreamgirls is picking up some late season steam heading into the major award season, although, The Departed is still the frontrunner in that category.

I was kind of shocked that Beyonce's swan song didn't take the win in Best Original Song, and that Volver beat out Apocolypto for best Foreign Film, but apart that, no real surprises.

Here are the list of favorites from The Film Experience (best website IMO) for the Oscar Awards:

Best Picture
1 The Departed
2 Dreamgirls
3 The Queen
4 Letters From Iwo Jima
5 Little Miss Sunshine
6 Babel
7 Little Children
8 Flags Of Our Fathers
9 Notes On A Scandal
10 United 93

Swap Letters with Queen, Babel with LMS and move United 93 up, and I think we have a more accurate list ;)

I have seen Dreamgirls already and Jennifer Hudson is AMAZING and pretty much has the oscar but just from the clips I've seen from Notes on a Scandal I am thinking I will be moving towards Cate.

We will see once it comes out. It will be the one to watch.

I only saw The Queen, Babel, Borat, The Devil wears Prada, Volver and United 93 (most of the others aren't out here yet) and I must say we had an excellent film year :yeah:

The Queen is alright, but not the best movie imo. Helen Mirren rocks though :) However I am not sure I prefer her over Penelope Cruz, who played suprisingly well in Volver, which is, again imo ;), a better movie.
Even beter than Volver: Babel :D Wonderful, exciting, sad, etc. But I didn't expect anything else from Iñárritu :worship:
United 93 was good, but certainly no winner.
As for Borat :lol: It should win something but I dodn't know what ;) Too bad there isn't an Oscar Comedy category cause it would win hands down :) Far far better than The Devil wears Prada, which was a mediocre film saved by an outstanding Meryl Streep :shrug:

Cate is picking up MAJOR steam from the smaller award circles, but I think the fact that she won for The Aviator a couple of years ago will almost GIVE it to Jen because her role is NOAS wasn't head and shoulders above Jen's.

wow. best actress this year is packed with 3 heavy timers (assuming Streep, Mirren, and Dench all get nominated). If you add Winslet and Cruz, then this is one hell of a list.

Altman?
They'll give him a great tribute, but not an Oscar for that film. I love
the radio show Prairie Home Companion, even if old Garrison is a
left wing Minnesota tree hugging liberal....he's got a great radio show.


I think it will be down to Eastwood and his two films, Babel, Dreamgirls,
and even The Queen (the real fave among the serious crowd). Nothing
really stands out, there were no serious blockbusters that garner Oscar
attention. Borat isn't going to get a Best Picture nod.

Streep v. Mirren for Best Actress.

I saw it :wavey: :lol:

I definately think that Jen deserves it, because IMO it's harder to make her role believable. Because there were so many things that she had to do, and the transformation she went through, and the fact that her role didn't have as many things "out there" as the other dramatic roles, Jennifer's part didn't have as much background, and there was a LOT of stuff she had to CREATE w/ Bill for the role.

OK, so I now that I have seen both Dreamgirls and Notes on a Scandal TWICE I have to say Jennifer Hudson is NOT the SUPPORTING actress.

Jennifers singing was to die for perfect, her acting not so much.

It will be an absolute crime if Little Miss Sunshine doesn't win best picture or even get a nomination :o
Miss Little Sunshine is an independent film, no? Is there any independent film won Best Picture in Oscars history?

Babel, Dreamgirls and The Departed have all cemented their lead in the Oscars Best Movie race after being named among the nominees for The Producers Guild of America film awards yesterday. The big three join Little Miss Sunshine and The Queen on the PGA's 2007 hotlist. The Guild members also nominated the makers of Cars, Flushed Away, Happy Feet, Ice Age: The Meltdown and Monster House as their picks for Best Animated Movie. The Producers Guild names its winners in a ceremony in Los Angeles on January 20.

Penelope was great.

Typically loopy Almodovar film.
But, beautiful to look at, and funny

THE SONG OF THE FILM - VOLVER -


Yo adivino el parpadeo
de las luces que a lo lejos
van marcando mi retorno.

Son las mismas que alumbraron
con sus pálidos reflejos
hondas horas de dolor.

Y aunque no quise el regreso
siempre se vuelve
al primer amor.

La vieja calle
donde me cobijo
tuya es su vida
tuyo es su querer.

Bajo el burlón
mirar de las estrellas
que con indiferencia
hoy me ven volver.

Volver
con la frente marchita
las nieves del tiempo
platearon mi sien.

Sentir
que es un soplo la vida
que veinte años no es nada
que febril la mirada
errante en las sombras
te busca y te nombra.

Vivir
con el alma aferrada
a un dulce recuerdo
que lloro otra vez.

Tengo miedo del encuentro
con el pasado que vuelve
a enfrentarse con mi vida.

Tengo miedo de las noches
que pobladas de recuerdos
encadenen mi soñar.

Pero el viajero que huye
tarde o temprano
detiene su andar.

Y aunque el olvido
que todo destruye
haya matado mi vieja ilusión,

guardo escondida
una esperanza humilde
que es toda la fortuna
de mi corazón.

Volver
con la frente marchita
las nieves del tiempo
platearon mi sien.

Sentir
que es un soplo la vida
que veinte años no es nada
que febril la mirada
errante en las sombras
te busca y te nombra.

Vivir
con el alma aferrada
a un dulce recuerdo
que lloro otra vez.

I'm soooooooooooooooooooo happy for the Mexican cinema .
This is been probably the greatest year as far as it concern to Mexican people and movies.

Alejandro González Iñarritu is GREAT:worship: :worship: :worship:
I'm soooooooooo happy for him that he is finally getting nominations everywhere and he deserves it he has worked really hard and he is a genious his 3 films have been amazing Babel:worship: 21 grams and specially Amores Perros(one of my favorites ever) great movie and also the work that Alegandro alongside Guilleromo Arriaga have done its amazing(Memo is the writter of Babel, Amores Perros and 21 grans he also won the "palm d'or" in Cannes 2005 for "Los tres entierros de Melquiades Estrada":worship: .
They are the dinamic duo of Mezxico's films ....its such a shame that they are having problems:sad: .
Guillermo del Toro............not a very big fan of some of his movies but "El Laberínto del fauno" its great.


But my biggest respect and the one that I'm happiest the most is for Adriana Barraza:bounce: :bounce: :bounce: :worship: :worship: :worship: .
She has worked her ass off on her televition career.........a few mediocre soup operas..............................just 2 that I liked.
Many many "Mujer casos de vida real" episodes(something about dramatics lifes of Mexican women).
Some movies as well .
She participated in Amores Perros or Love's a bitch or Loves dogs (soryy I don't know the tittle in english) her character was the mother of Gael García Bernal:lick: :drool: ...................................and now.................................BABEL¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡ ¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡:bounce:
She completely stoles the movie...........I went to see it the day of its opening(november 10 I think) and I was very exited to see Cate Blanchett and Gael Garcia in the same movie but I was really surprised when the movie ended...............nobody remember Brad Pitt looking very bad or Gael García as the tipical Mexican "naco y padrote":lol: or Cate Balnchett dying toughout all the movie(great performance by her and Gael thoug) .........everyones remembers the Japanese girl Kikuchi(I forgot her first name)and Adriana and they leave asking who the hell are those two woman.

I'm so so so proud and happy..................


I would love that Babel kick ass :bounce: .................but as far as I have read.......I thinks its not possible many of you talk abou "little miss sunshine" "the departed" "dream girls" but I haven't seen them because they haven't arrived to México yet and I'll be able to see them in March or something like that.

Anyway..........no matter what...........Alejandro kick ass:rocker2: :hearts:

so, it looks like those five films will be nominated: Babel, Little Miss Sunshine, Dreamgirls, The Queen, and The Departed.

If you notice, besides Dreamgirls (who received TONS of hype before its release), all 4 movies were released around October. Movies like Pan's Labyrinth and Children Of Men did not get enough hype to make the list.

Can't believe United 93 didn't make it :eek:
and looks like Letters From Iwo Jima and Flags Of Our Fathers cancelled each other out

Little Children also isn't there :sad: - need to hope that Winslet and Haley get nominated now
