Ok, I'm in. I made my selections. (for now). I really haven't seen that many movies in the theater this year so it is hard to say on a lot of them. I guess I am just too deep into the DVD world that I forget you can watch these movies before the magical tuesday comes around and they show up in stores everywhere. :D

Ooh, these are always fun. A little competition always makes the show more exciting. I haven't seen several of the nominees, so my picks will be guesses based on what I've heard from the critics.

 

This year's show should be more interesting than last year's for the sheer variety of nominees. Sure, LOTR got its due, but it wasn't all that fascinating to watch the show, in my opinion.

 

Good lord. I just had a closer look at that list. Shark Tale? Shark Tale?! Come on now.

...possibly win some prizes

 

... Right! How 'bout the the prize is the "right to complain that the site is cheap and never gives away any prizes"? ;)

 

Before anyone gets in a huff, keep in mind that I never have expected anything of this site or it's owners. The site alone is good enough for me.

 

If it ever becomes a paid site, though, I want some cashish awards once in awhile! :P

I'm actually working on a new contest Ricky. So there will be some prizes given away soon. We haven't done an official contest since the Ed Wood giveaway and I'm working out something cool for the next one. Stay Tuned on that front.

Romier, that would be a nice gesture - one that certainly goes above and beyond. For a site without ads or fees, contests are not something that one would ever expect to see. Thanks again for your hard work and providing a cool hangout for game geeks like myself. :tu

I feel so lost without a LOTR film to vote for.

 

 

Leading Actor

Eh

I guess I'll vote for Clint Eastwood. Didn't see any of these (I don't think so, at least)

 

Supporting Actor

Clive Owen - Closer

 

Leading Actress

Catalina Sandino Moreno - As much as I love Eternal Sunshine, I have to vote for her performance in Maria Full of Grace here

 

Supporting Actress

Cate Blanchett (I didn't even see the movie, but Galadriel gets my vote :D

Natalie Portman did a good job in Closer but gotta vote for the Elf Queen :D

 

Animated

Incredibles

WTF, no anime to vote for (not that it would ever win)? I don't like Disney but I am OK with Pixar, so, how about The Incredibles (at least it had super heroes)

 

Art Direction

A Very Long Engagement. Crazy CGI, paint, etc rectreation of post-war Europe

 

Cinematography

A Very Long Engagement

 

Costume Design

Choose one for me at random

 

Directing:

Sideways

 

Documentary:

The only one I saw was Supersize me, but Oscar worthy? No vote here, random.

 

Short Doc:

Random

 

Film Editing:

Ditto

 

Foreign Language Film

Ditto (Where is a very long engagement? Must not have been good enough). Fine. Then WHERE IS MARIA FULL OF GRACE? Crackfiends.

 

Makeup:

How about Lemony Snicket. It's almost fantasy (not that I saw it).

 

Original Score:

I'll go with Harry Potter.

 

Original Song:

Motorcyle diaries, I guess. Whatever. Where is my LOTR to vote for :( ??

 

Best Picture:

Sideways (Write in vote: Eternal Sunshine, dammit)

 

Short Film animated:

?

 

Short Film, live:

?

 

Sound Editing:

Spider Man 2

 

Sound Mixing:

Spider Man 2

 

Visual Effects

Harry Potter. As long as I, Robot doesn't win anything I will be happy

 

Screenplay, adapted

Before Sunset

 

Screenplay, original

ETERNAL SUNSHINE

 

 

 

Notice I loved Eternal Sunshine. I almost asked my wife to take me to see it again in the theater. The only movies I repeat see in the theater was LOTR. Eternal Sunshine was my favorite movie in a long time (except Fellowship of the Ring. Nothing is better than Fellowship :D )

Foreign Language Film

Maria Full of Grace is an American produced film. The Foreign Language category is an odd category where the relevant film body from each nation is allowed to nominate one film produced/funded & released in the correct year in their nation. A Very Long Engagement is classed as an American film as proven in French courts due to a large part of its costs being covered by US companies.

 

I'm actually more interested in this year's Oscars because there's no LOTR.

Having just seen Million Dollar Baby, I'm going to have to move my prediction for Best Actress over to Hilary Swank. Let it be known that I am not a fan of her work in general. She actually kind of puts me off in some of the roles she has done but the woman had me in absolute tears during that movie and her performance was breathtaking.

 

Same for the directors category. Though my thinking was that the Academy would give Marty his due for Aviator (and they still may), Eastwood's work with MDB is just too good not to get the award IMHO. I may actually move my nomination for best picture over as well....

Yeah, my wife got me to go see Million Dollar Baby. Talk about a heartbreaker. Another excellent directing job from Mr. Eastwood, who apparently has learned an awful lot about people during his eon on earth and in the film biz.

 

Here at work I changed a couple of my votes to MDB...but I left actress alone, I must vote for anything Eternal Sunshine. :D I voted for the Maria FoG woman here but at work I went with everything Eternal Sunshine. :D
