This is the place to talk about this awards season. What movies do you want to take the gold come Oscar time? Which are your predictions? What's your opinion about the Academy and the other award organizations?

Return of the King and Finding Nemo will and should get something, respectively.

I'm hoping Comedy Central's "Commie Awards" will be funny and cool, as I expect them to be -- after all, the awesome Andy Richter is hosting, and that's a good sign.

I read in Newsweek that the reason The Fellowship Of The Ring and The Two Towers didn't win best picture is because they had already made tons of money. The Acadamy likes to root for the underdogs, which The Lord Of The Rings is not. But I think that's bullshit. Return Of The King should win best picture because Jackson deserves it. And because no third installment of a trilogy has won best picture, not even the awsome Godfather III. Well, anyways, The Lord Of The Rings has been waiting long enough and winning would be a good way for the trilogy to go out with.

"The the award for best animated short goes to . . . Return of the King?"

I'm still predicting a sweep for RotK.

Well, since the movie hasn't come out yet, how could it be on the list? The critics haven't had a chance to review it.

Cold Mountain hasn't came out either. It doesn't come out until Christmas day.

Critics just abuse their powers saying they saw all of those movies on the list but I'm sure many of them just randomly chose a rank for them, just for what they have listened from other critics.
Anyway, I'm hoping that the RotK gets something honorable, I still have faith.

The members of the National Board of Review are not critics, in fact no one knows who they are. It is said that they are film experts and professors.
Neither The Fellowship of The Ring nor The Two Towers got into the top 10 this past two years.
Here you can see the rest of the winners

I hope "Goodbye, Lenin" will receive a nomination for the best foreign language movie. Other nominations: Matrix Reloaded (for SFX), The Missing, Finding Nemo, Mona Lisa Smile and of course LOTR 3.

"Return of the King" should be cleaning everything and blowing all competition aside.

Then again so should "The Fellowship of the Ring" and "The Two Towers" and look what happened. I'd love to be proven wrong, but...

The fact remains, whoever they are, they haven't seen ROTK yet, or Cold Mountain. How can they make a list including a movie they haven't seen?

We can hope that they have seen the advance screenings that have been taking place since last week.
Still, I doubt that all of the members have seen The Return of the King (probably, too mainstream for them)

My predictions for nominees (for Best Picture) are:
Mystic River
LotR: Return of the King
The Human Stain
Cold Mountain
Big Fish
The Last Samurai


If Human Stain, Cold Mountain or Last Samurai wins, I'll be very, very upset.  Nicole Kidman will probably win Best Actress for HS, simply because she plays a poor woman who sleeps with Anthony Hopkins.  I think Mystic River will win Best Picture, and Sean Penn will probably win Best Actor.  Personally, I think Bill Murray should win, but Lost in Translation might be too mainstream for the Academy.  I'd love for Sofia Coppola to get a Best Director nod, but Clint Eastwood will probably win.  Peter Jackson is the the most deserving, though.  I think it's fairly obvious that Finding Nemo will be Best Animated Film.  Millennium Actress should at least be nominated though.

And that's my Oscar rant for the day.  smile

Which is fairly important because it gives the possibility of some very good performances that can be Academy Award nominated, and I'll tell you, at least with a Best Supporting Actor nom and a Best Director win, we got Best Picture.

According to this:

Viggo Mortensen is no longer a candidate for any award.

That means, that in Lead Actor Elijah is ROTK's only hope and that is going to be difficult. The reviews for his performance have been very favorable but he's going to need more than that to get any sort of possibility.

In Supporting I think Sean Astin is going to get the nomination. McKellen already had his chance two years ago.

And the day when I see Miranda Otto nominated for an Oscar, I'll be a happy man.(Her performance has been getting nice comments, also)

 Rotk needs that respect but I don't think that The Last Samurai was all that impressive but it probobly does deserve a nomination... but a last one and it really shouldn't win. Mona Lisa Smile is going to be one of those "Chick Flicks" I take a date to and I hope it gets an award because I'll need a good excuse for why I went and saw it.

That reminds me that the screener ban was lifted by order of a judge. That's great news for independent films and distributors, and for everyone who tought this screener ban was ridiculuos.

Didn't you just give yourself a good excuse?

And there is nothing wrong with Kirstne Dunst, Julia Stiles, and Maggie KJBViabfbviBViksdbv all in the same movie.

I can't wait for the Oscar nominees announcements, just to see if Bubba Ho-Tep is nominated in any category. No doubt "Elephant" will be, though.

No, I wasn't. The movie got rave reviews by almost everyone, and besides, it is NOT a gore-fest. In fact, there's no gore whatsoever. 99.9% of the movie is slow and talky, mainly one huge monologue by old geezer Elvis in his rest home bed reflecting on his life. Besides, the Academy's made up of a bunch of old farts who are probably huge Elvis fans, and it's an independent film directed by the the dude who directed "Phantasm," AND it also has JFK as a character, so one more thing the old farts will lean towards, and finally, how can you not like a movie with the line "Mr. President, ask not what your rest home can do for you, but what you can do for your rest home"?

After seeing ROTK, I have to say that if it doesn't win best picture, I will personally make the Academy pay dearly for it. ROTK was by far the best movie of the year!

Tomorrow the Golden Globe nominations are announced early on in the morning. The Globes are very important in determining which movies are most likely to get nommed by the Academy.

EDIT: Here are the nominations

Cold Mountain got 8 nominations!!  mad Damn Miramax

But it was great for Lost in Translation to get 5 noms.

Big Fish and Return of the King also scored some good noms (especially the latter)
