I think Nicole will get it! Her card's come up.
I wouldn't mind to see Renee win it though, but I don't think she will.

In my humble opinion, Sissy Spacek will win her second Oscar come late March. It's not guaranteed but she is the heavy favorite, having swept many of the preliminary awards like the Golden Globes (for Drama) and many major American critics' awards (NY, LA). My pick to upset Sissy: Halle Berry, who was spectacular in "Monsters Ball".

Halle Berry was so incredibly shit in the X-Men I can't pick her because it's against my principals to do so ;)

Nicole, yeah, alright, she would be my favourite personality wise, but I thought she was better in The Others...

Sissy Spacek - I want to see this film so much. But I haven't yet, so I can't vote for her. SHE WILL WIN

Renée - Did a good job, put on weight blah blah blah, her English accent sucked beyond any recognition of an english accent. I'm sorry but nobody apart from Gwyneth paltrow speaks like that.

Judie Dench - She's great, and old. Should give her as many Oscars as they possibly can before she retires/dies (which ever comes first)

Nicole is my choice, but since I don't get to vote, Sissy Spacek will most likely win it. If there were to be an upset, it would probably be Nicole causing it. (Wish wish jellyfish)

Zellwegger can be counted out for now. But if she kissed a little ass and sucked a little dick, she might have it in the bag.

Berry, while she probably put in a good performance, will never be taken seriously enough to be an Oscar winner, epsecially after that whole "debacle" with the rumoured extra $500,000 for a nude scene in Swordfish.

Dench will miss out again, but should be considered the third favourite if there were such a thing. I don't even think she cares.

Nicole won't win. Her lack of a SAG nomination shows that she was definitely on the bubble. Even Zellweger got the SAG nomination, and so if Jenn Connelly hadn't been pushed for Supporting Actress, she would have made the Best Actress ballot before Nicole.

It's Sissy or Halle, I've been saying this for weeks and that's not going to change. Sissy will win right now but Halle is picking up buzz and could made a late charge.

Im rooting for Halle. I think that in lieu of some lightweight roles, she has proved her self worthy to be considered for Oscar glory. My heart is hoping for her, but in all honesty, I think that Sissy will win. That wouldnt be a big disappointment for me coz I like her, but Im hoping for Halle.

Who cares... Oscars quite lost their credibility with their recent awards.. From what supposed to be an Academy Award, and what supposed to be about an art of cinema it has transormed into lets-award-what-public-likes society.

Right, but when I am interested in which movies are really the best, I prefer Kannes by a mile. I mean, Gladiator the best film? Titanic - the best film? In terms of money - maybe, but in terms of art of cinema? Nonsense..

Well, it's all fun and games. I mean, they're never going to honor an obscure film, and their tastes are often suspect, but they try their best to honor the best when crap doesn't get in the way. :)

They did a better-than-average job nominating films this year. Even the one Hollywood film this year, "A Beautiful Mind," was excellent. Everything else was made outside the LA system ("Gosford Park," "LOTR," and "Moulin Rouge" were made in foreign countries, all of them either written or directed by a foreigner, and "In the Bedroom" was an independent film), so that should please you, ys. Or have you not seen any of the movies and just dismissing them on principle? :)

I believe that nomination of LOTR is again that hype factor. It does not belong to here.

Okay. Have you seen "In the Bedroom"? "Iris," with three actors nominated? "Gosford Park"? Would you even be able to appreciate comedy?

What about "Amelie"? I know you enjoyed that film very much. Perhaps it didn't get Best Picture or Best Actress, but it was honored by the writers, the cinematographers, and the editors, and is almost a lock for Outstanding Foreign Language Film. Isn't that a step in the right direction, in your opinion?

It's not neccassarily a lock for best foreign film : No Man's Land (Bosnia-Herzegovina) is apparently bloody amazing

The only true Awards are the SAG's..the rest are personality contests, backed by big studio money.

Judi Dench is by far the best actress on that list but she won't get the award. The others aren't good enough to be mentioned in the same breath as her.
