I don't know Adaptation didn't leave too much of an impression visually, although it should have gotten a directors nod for the two Cages... It should definitely win for best Screenplay...really deserves it.

I say that Peter Jackson won't really cash in until next year, when the Academy unloads on Return of the King.

NO! WHERE'S ROBIN WILLIAMS FOR INSOMNIA AND ONE HOUR PHOTO?!?!? AND WHAT ABOUT "ROAD TO PERDITION"?

I HATE how they focus on just the oscar movies that come out two months before the nominations are cast!

road to perdition came out too early for people to remember it and robin williams probably cancelled out any chance he had at being nominated (not that i personally think he had much chance to begin with)

Not had much of a chance? The guy turned his career around 360 degrees! He completely stunned everyone who thought all he could do was comedy and sappy crap!

Come to think of it, he'd make a hell of a Bond Villain...

I didn't see what the big deal was. Hanks played a different aspect of the same character he always plays - a guy, who, through the love of his family, is able to transform into a kind-hearted soul. It just so happens that he kills some people while he's at it.

I've only seen LOTR out of all the best picture films...though having seen Chicago on the stage, I'm sure the film is just as good

Give Gollum a new preciousssss shiny gold thing!

The only one I've seen is Two Towers but I've heard good things about Gangs of New York even though everyone in it has a dire Irish accent.

I just hope that Michael Caine gets the Oscar for the "Quiet American". Aside from that no real surprises for this years nominations.

Even though I haven't seen the film, I would like The Pianist to win. But it will probably go to Gangs of New York.

Oh. I saw "Road to Perdition" and skimmed through the rest of his post. I agree with him on Robin Williams, though.

i still disagree on robin williams. sure, his work in both those movies was great, but just because you choose to allow yourself to be typecast into sucky lunatic roles and then finally take a "serious" role... well i just don't think that should automatically equal oscar

I haven't seen Insomnia, but a movie with Al Pacino as a good guy and Robin Williams as a bad guy can NOT be crap; it's just NOT possible.  Anyway those other movies suck, and if anyone says Gangs of New York is good then they're obviously sleeping with Leonardo Dicapitated (AND HES GAY!)! Oh I meant all the other movies EXCEPT two towers, which should automatically win no matter what, unless the judges are gay and then they'll pick Gangs of New York, which would make them gay, gay with that gay guy.  Oh and Road to Perdition was good too ARRRRRRRRRGGGGGHHH   mad

he's done serious before, but it was all sappy serious stuff...like "Patch Adams". No one predicted he'd play a villain...and every review of "One Hour Photo" said he gave the best performance of his career...but to snub him entirely?

but his one (or two) decent jobs in a movie only shine so bright because they are being compared to the rest of the crap that he does (acts in). If you compare his performance to that of the other actors then he doesn't stand out so much.

Eminem is thinking about it.

Don't worry Juliet, let's just assume she was talking about the Academy.

But anyway, I just read this thread for the first time, and I'd like to say: winna should be in charge of the Oscars, and also: Robin Williams shouldn't get an oscar, because come on, he's Robin Williams.

Lol, there's just something wrong with how that was said. In that case, the guy is right back where he was! BTW, G.W. Bush used that same analogy.

I think Chicago has a good chance of getting best picture, even over LOTR. And it has some pretty good numbers, too. The only thing I hate about it is that it was filmed in CANADA! >_<
