    Well, since The Incredibles sweeped the Annies, I can only hope they do the same at the Oscars. Is it just me or is DreamWorks only producing animated parodies? Shrek was a breath of fresh air when it was first released but it was the same product and scheme with the sequel. I saw it a second time but felt I was desperately robbed of the few chuckles I experienced the first time around. It seemed so... bland. I won't even touch Shark Tale. That was just a waste of eye candy... like Treasure Planet!

    I hope either Finding Neverland or Sideways gets the award for best film. I haven't seen Sideways yet but from what I've read, sure, let it have their fun.

    I haven't seen all the movies on the list, so I can't really choose which one I want to win.
    However, I'm rather glad to see that the Aviator was nominated. I really enjoyed the Aviator. If you had told me back around the release of Titanic that Leonardo DiCaprio would be making plenty of movies I liked (first Catch Me If You Can, now The Aviator) I don't know if I would have believed you.

    Best Documentary: Morgan Spurlock for Super Size Me
    Can't believe he ate McDonald's for 30 days

    If you see it on DVD, be sure to see The Smoking Fry in the special features section.

    I'm with you, Stinkerbell about being underwhelmed by the song nominations. I mean... two of the songs are not even English... ?? The only two I know are Accidentally in Love and Learn to be Lonely.

    I've noticed that. Even in Ocean's 11 he was uncredited. :confused:

    Ever since that movie I can't stop saying "We're in Barney. You know, Barney Rubble. Trouble!" Or, "What we need is a pinch," whenever things aren't working out the right way.

    Amen, amen, and amen. I'll see pretty much anything that he's in. He does some un-credited roles, so I constantly check his profile on imdb.com!!! I even watched a crappy Jackie Chan movie to see him. Now that's LOVE!!! :love:

    As I look over that list....more and more I'm bothered by this. I thought Paul Giamatti was better in Sideways than Johnny Depp was in Finding Neverland.

    I'm underwhelmed by the song choices....I'd have to pick Accidentally In Love for Shrek 2. The scores actually did nothing for me.

    I'm hoping that A Very Long Engagement wins cinematography or art direction....it was just so incredibly beautiful to look at. Even when it was a scene that was hard to watch. It's a movie that I must own someday. The other foreign language movies must really be something if this didn't get a nomination!! Also, very surprised that Bad Education didn't make the cut....or Motorcycle Diaries.

    I am sad that Kinsey only got one nod (Laura Linney - who was great) but Liam deserved a nomnation and I also felt it was a slightly better film than Finding Neverland (which I am glad got lots of attention).

    The only category that I have seen all of the films (so far) is Animated Feature. Did I mention I don't have children? I sure hope THe Incredibles get the award there. Shreck was ok, but not as fresh as the first and Shark Tale was painfully awful.

    I really thought Sideways had a better shot at more awards. It is SUCH an industry-appealing film. I haven't seen The Aviator or Million Dollar Baby - don't really want to - bit I guess I will now. rags feet:

    Well as far as Best Picture goes, I'd like to see Million Dollar Baby and Return to Neverland. However I must watch Grease before anything else or I may suffer great punishment from others. :devil:

    We are in the same boat Disguy. What is even sadder is that my kids have seen more of the nominated pictures than I have. (My dad & step-mom took them to see A Shark Tale.)

    My brother is quite excited about Million Dollar Baby garnering so many nominations. He knew ahead of time that the guy he works for was not going to be nominated for the Sound Effects Editing for MDB. They came really close with Space Cowboys a few years ago, but they were beat out by U-571.

    Sideways for best picture, Shrek 2 for animated picture, and Eternal Sunshine for best original screenplay. That's all I got.

    Okay, my picks from the list:

    Among the major catagories, the nominees are....

    BEST PICTURE

    SIDEWAYS

    Haven't seen Million Dollar Baby yet, and I've decided to NOT see Ray and The Aviator....I've gotten bored by the biopics....and is it blasphemous to say I didn't care for Ray Charles? And also, I was raised going to see the freaking Spruce Goose every chance my parents got, so I have a thing against Howard Hughes.....and on TOP of that? My brother-in-law was in charge of building the new building here in Oregon that houses the damn thing. That plane!!! Can't get away from it!!!

    ANIMATED FEATURE FILM

    THE INCREDIBLES


    ACTOR IN A LEADING ROLE

    Don Cheadle - HOTEL RWANDA

    Amazing performance!!! Yay! Though I'm sad that Paul Giamatti isn't here...he was soooo good in Sideways. Plan to see Clint in Million $ Baby still.

    ACTRESS IN A LEADING ROLE

    Annette Bening - BEING JULIA
    Catalina Sandino Moreno - MARIA FULL OF GRACE
    Imelda Staunton - VERA DRAKE
    Hilary Swank - MILLION DOLLAR BABY
    Kate Winslet - ETERNAL SUNSHINE OF THE SPOTLESS MIND

    I have no clue....


    ACTOR IN A SUPPORTING ROLE


    Clive Owen - CLOSER

    I'm torn between Clive and Thomas Haden Church, actually....


    ACTRESS IN A SUPPORTING ROLE


    Sophie Okonedo - HOTEL RWANDA

    No comparison! She was excellent!!


    DIRECTING

    THE AVIATOR
    MILLION DOLLAR BABY
    RAY
    SIDEWAYS
    VERA DRAKE

    Can't say.....

    DOCUMENTARY FEATURE

    SUPER SIZE ME

    Okay, so this is the only one I saw in this category......


    WRITING (ADAPTED SCREENPLAY)

    SIDEWAYS

    I really really loved Sideways.....can you tell? I've got the book on hold at the library. I'm looking forward to making comparisons.

    WRITING (ORIGINAL SCREENPLAY)

    ETERNAL SUNSHINE OF THE SPOTLESS MIND

    Cool story, well written, perfect.
