Martin Scorsese, but then again if Chicago is to win best picture, they have to give a big prize somewhere before they hand thenm a best pic win, so maybe Rob Marshall

Martin is said to be fav to win coz he has not win at all before, but remeber last year robert altman ?

They snubbed Peter Jackson. Last year the film received both a Best Film and Best Director nomination. This year only the latter.

Next year, probably zilch.

I guess 'Bad Taste' and 'Braindead' are still haunting his reputation. Really a shame, cause if you get past the 10,000 liters of blood and other bodily fluids, they are excellent films.

Haven't seen 'The Hours', but I thought Daldry did an excellent job with 'Billy Elliot', which won him an Academy Award nomination two years ago, even though it gets some deductions for originality because of its resemblance with 'Brassed Off'.

Roman Polanski - The Pianist
I saw that movie and I was really amazed . Polański deserved an Oscar .

I guess Scorsese wins this. "Gangs" has Academy support after all.

I hope Pedro Almodovar wins it, but I think Scorsese is the choosen this year.

Just a question, Will Roman Polanski go to the ceremony?

Feb 12th, 2003, 10:09 AM
I doubt it (for his sake)

Go Pedro!!! Scorsese's film is not his best by far...

From what I've seen so far, I'm backing Scorsese. I was a bit disappointed with Talk to Her, since I'm an Almodovar fan...but found that the movie just didn't do it for me.

After all these years, I don't see any justifiable reason for it, though, the D.A. in L.A. is a real dipwad!

Vamos Pedro!!!!!

According to Belgian teletext source, Polanski is not coming.

I hope Scorsese will FINALLY win. Unbelievable such a talented guy never got any Oscar. To paraphrase the great Colin Powell: inexcusable!

I would be suprised if Polanski did show up........ But it would be great to have him back in Hollywood with his legal problems cleared up!
