It's great to see that a movie from Germany (Good Bye, Lenin) has received a nomination.

I was sad that A Mighty Wing didn't got a nomination. It surely deserved one for Best Original Song.

TV-wise, I'm gald to see Monk get a nod for Best Comedy (and Tony Shalhoub a Best Comedy Actor nom), and Amber Tamblyn from "Joan of Arcadia" a nom for Best Actress. I enjoy both shows very much.

TV-wise, I thought the nominations were a little strange. Friends only got one nom. No Alias. Not too much love for The Shield. Three Sex and the City nominees in Best Supporting Actress (too much). It's going to be difficult to predict.

What is it about films with Nicole Kidman that makes people really like them?  roll eyes
I haven't seen Cold Mountain, but if the trailer is any indication, it's a sappy sack of crap...
"When I held you and pulled you to me, it was like I was holding a bag of diamonds."  How on earth did Jude Law say that with a straight face?  I think the logical alternative to seeing the movie is just to read the book.
On the other end of the spectrum...Yay!  Lost in Translation, Big Fish and Return of the King got nominations!  Finally, quality films get recognition!

I saw that neither Matrix sequel made it as a finalist for the Visual Effects Oscar.  Okay, so they didn't do as well as everyone thought, but that shouldn't be taken into consideration when you're just thinking about effects.  I think that at least Revolutions should have been there instead of Hulk or X2, both of which are finalists.

the problem with the matrix sequels is that no one at least tried to understand it at all - I think I was like the few who actually did. i like movies that make you actually have to think about something involving the plot instead of having everything spelled out for you on the screen. In my opinion, the wachowskis are pure geniuses. It's just everyone heard the confusing lines from morpheus and the oracle and just went "what?" and never actually tried to THINK about what they meant. End of rant, it's christmas eve.

The first Matrix movie is a classic and it deserves all its awards. But i was really surprised when the Academy has announed there possible nominations and both The Matrix Reloaded and Matrix Revolutions were shunned. Take for example movies like T3 or The Hulk. Is anybody here who will say that the visual effects in T3 or The Hulk were better than in the last Matrix movies?

Will it be the first Oscar for a woman on the directors chair? Sofia Coppala has good chances. Yesterday were the announces of 56th DGA-Awards: Here are the nominations:

Sofia Coppola: Lost in Translation
Clint Eastwood: Mystic River
Peter Jackson: The Lord of the Rings III: The Return of the King
Gary Ross: Seabiscuit
Peter Weir: Master and Commander

Mike Nichols (The Graduate, Working Girl) has received the Lifetime Achievement Award.

I think Sofia Coppola has an excellent chance for a nomination, but a win seems unlikely. She has to overcome both Peter Jackson and Clint Eastwood.

"The Matrix Revolutions" wasn't nominated because it sucked. Plain and simple. The effects weren't even that good. Especially when you compare them to "Return of the King" or "X-Men 2."

/edit -- And I must see "American Splendor," just to find out what all the hubub is about. Maybe I'll read the comic book, first...

X2 has got nothing on The Matrix: Revolutions! ROTK was great, but not up to the level of "Matrix".

Ah, wait...are you referring to all those scenes in which it was obvious Neo was CGI? I'm sorry, I just don't find the effects in Reloaded or Revolutions to be all that, well, revolutionary. In fact, they're pretty bland and uninspiring. RotK and X-Men 2, just off the top of my head, had better effects. I'm sure there are plenty of other movies that had better visual effects than the Matrix, but I'm too lazy to name them all.

Oh hell no. ROTK had the most obvious effects ever. Like when Legolas took down the big ass elephant, not once did I think that was a real scene. And In X2, They barely made an apperance. The effects in the Matrix movies were of Final Fantasy: The Spirits Within quality.

Sequels only get nominated to Vissual Effects Oscars when they bring something new to the series,when they innovate and improve upon the original. This branch of the Academy didn't thought that the effects from Matrix Revolutions brought something new to the Matrix movies. They thought that it was basically the effects of the first movie multiplied by 100.

Um, you're just setting yourself up there. I'm not going to touch it, not having seen FF the Movie. But, from what I've been told, the effects are pretty weak.

Oh, and there's more to visual effects than CGI. Just so you know. Personally, if a movie looks too CGI-ish, that breaks the reality of it. I always like when there's actual physical effects to the movie. (see, Star Wars, Indiana Jones, Blade Runner, etc)

For those interested, today the Critic's Choice Awards will be broadcast live on E!. The Critic's Choice have started to become into a very accurate predictor of the Oscars this past years, so it'll be interesting to watch what are their picks for this year.

Neither did I. Know why? Because oliphaunts/mumakil don't exist! Who the hell knows what one would look like?

People, on the other hand, do exist and I do know what they look like. And the people-effects of Matrix 2 & 3 didn't match up with reality for me.

I'm talking about effects, not plot. I agree with LAN here: when you make CGI people, it's easier for them to look pretty crappy. Never, in the trailers for FF, did I think I was watching real people acting. Whereas with LotR, I could visualize real people behind the Orc makeup. There's a disturbing trend  in movies to make everything CGI, even stuff that doesn't need to be.

Oh, and I didn't "hate" Reloaded. I thought it was alright, and even defended it quite a bit (on this board and in real life.)

This year is a little anniversary at the OSCARs because the 70th song will receive an OSCAR. Well when I am comparing the songs of the last years with the songs of earlier years i can see that there are less classics but more tedious pop crap. It's a pitty. Last year I've heard only two good movie songs from The Return of the King ('Into the West') and Jungle Book 2 ('Jungle Rhythm')(though it was a crap movie). The rest (e.g. Brother Bear, A Mighty Wind) was not so good.

But of course, mylady.
In the BFCA awards he received 80 votes, next to him (very far) is clint eastwood that received like 14.
Too bad Peter wasn't at the awards to hit eastwood's face.
Nah just kidding, eastwood is a great actor and *coughs* director *coughs*

As for best movie in the Oscars, I have hope in the RotK, as I've seen many of the possible movies that had been told as possible winners had gone out of reach of my preciousss

About actors and actresses I predict:
Sean Penn for Mystic River, even though I didn't like him, in fact I didn't like the movie at all.
I'd like Bill Murray (had received a lot of awards), for Lost in Transaltion, even though I haven't see the movie yet.

Best Actress: Charlize Theron, for Monster, she's getting a lot of positive reviews and awards, even though the movie wasn't very popular, I've heard her acting was marvellous.

As for original screenplay, I put my faith yo Lost in Translation, (again) but In America has great chances too.

Adapted screenplay, to LotR, nothing for mytic river!!

And in summary to all that: Screw Cold Mountain!!

Has anyone seen the Golden Globes Awards ceremony yesterday? I don't because 2 AM or 3 AM in the morning were too late for me. I've read about the winners at the internet and I think there were some really surprises. Osama (a movie about torture against women in Afghanistan) has won in the category Best Forein Language Picture. Charlize Theron has won for her role in Monster. Lost in Translation has beaten Finding Nemo in the Best Comedy category. Mystic River has won both the Award for Actor (Drama, Sean Penn) and the Award for Best Supporting Actor (Tim Robbins) and Cold Mountain - though nominated for 8 Awards - has received only one for Renee Zellweger (Best Supporting Actress). Other Winners: Lord of The Rings: The Return of the King 4 Awards for Best Picture (Drama), Best Score, Best Song, Best Director, Lost in Translation another 2 Awards for Best Actor and Best Screenplay. BTW tomorrow at 5.30 AM ET are the nominees of the 76th Academy Awards. I am thrilled.

Yes, The Return of the King got 4 out of 4 yesterday, while other movies like Cold Mountain went 1 out of 7.

I really think this can be repeated at the Oscars but adding at least 5 technical wins, for a total of at least 8 wins.
