What?
He does a good job as Tommy Cooper and Keith Richards love child!

Seriously though, I hope he or Bill Murray wins, even though I haven't seen Lost In Translation yet.

I think it's time for Tim Robbins and Sean Penn to pick up an OSCAR.

Tim Robbins got an Imagination Oscar for Shawshank Redemption! (what? Well in my mind he did!!)

Maybe Robbins is overdue, but I found his performance in Mystic River to be extremely overrated. That said, 80% of the critics and audiences disagree wiyh me. Same goes with Sean Penn. I would really like to see Bill Murray or Depp winning this.

Tim Robbins got one nomination for best director (Dead Man Walking). Mystic River is his first nomination for a Leading Role. Sean Penn got 3 Nominations so far and has always lost. Well and there is another thing. ROTK has no actor/actress nominee and so it could be that the chances for Eastwood to pick up the director's OSCAR are probably better than the chances for Peter Jackson.

I'd like to see RotK win for best picture, but I won't hold my breath.

One award I do expect RotK to win is best costume design.  It's a crime that the first two LotR films didn't win that one.  I can only assume that the academy wasn't paying attention.

Here's an interesting fact with this year's nominees in Best Picture:
ROTK, Master and Commander, and Seabiscuit have technical nomination but don't have acting nominations.
Mystic River and Lost in Translation have acting nominations but don't have technical nominations.

That said, the last time a film won Best Picture without acting nominations was Braveheart 8 years ago, and before that, The Last Emperor 16 years ago.
The last time a film won without technical nomination was Ordinary People 25 years ago, and before that, Annie Hall 27 years ago.
So, it appears that is more comomn for a movie to win without acting noms, than to win with not even a Best Editing nom.

Yeah, but it was the same thing with Denzel Washington. He got nominated for Training Day, although many said that he delivered better performances in other movies, but on the other hand many people said that he deserved one, so he got it.

But I'm surprised that Cold Mountain received just a few nominations, where as Master & Commander got 10. But that doesn't mean anything, just ask Martin Scorsese.

Cold Mountain didn't deserve many nominations. Zellwger will win. It should also win cinematography, but apart from that Cold Mountain was not a great standout.
Mystic River deserves the best picture oscar, and I would love to see Bill Murray win best actor.
My biggest disappointment in the nominations was the Sean Astin missed out. His and Andy Serkis' performance in LOTR were the strengths of the film

I'll just talk about the big awards...

I'd like to see LOTR win Best Picture... the only nominee there I haven't seen is Mystic River, and I have my doubts it culd be better than all the other four. I'm not a huge LOTR fan, but it's a great movie and probably the best of the year. Still, my favorites are Lost in Translation, American Splendor and The Station Agent.

Speaking of Station Agent and American Splendor, I feel they were slighted. Paul Giamatti was easily better as Harvey Pekar than Jude Law was as Inman. All Law did was lower his voice attempting to sound like a Southerner. As for Station Agent's Peter Dinklage, I think he was as good or better than Jude Law, but Giamatti is the most deserving actor left out.

Best Actress is hard to argue, I've only seen In America. As long as Nicole Kidman wasn't nominated I'm okay... but I do think Scarlett Johansson was worthy of a nod, or maybe Hope Davis in American Splendor or The Secret Lives of Dentists.

When it comes to supporting actor I'm mostly satisfied. Watanabe and Alec Balwin deserve their spots. The only other one I'd seen was In America, which I loved, but there is no reason Djimon Hounsou should be there rather than Sean Astin. Astin or Baldwin were my picks for this award.

...supporting actress. The only one I've seen here is Renee Zellweger. Patricia Clarkson was good in That Station Agent, so it's good just that she's nominated for something.

Nothing else to add. I've run on too long... who/what do you folks think should have been nominated, but wasn't?

I have seen City of God today and I must say the ensemble acting in this movie belongs to the best which i have seen in the last years. BTW this movie deserves the OSCAR for best cinematography. And another thought. Russell Crowe, Tom Cruise and Jack Nicholson were snubbed but Johnny Depp received a nomination. Really strange.

And what makes it more amazing is that there are no real actors in the movie.

I was surprised about Cruise, Crowe, and Nicholson, but none of those movies were their best work.

Actually, I didn't see "something's Gotta Give." The title sucks.

The problem with Scarlett was that she comitted category fraud. She was the lead actress in Lost in Translation, but she campaigned for Supporting Actress( we have Focus to blame for this). Then she started being nominated for lead actress at other awards, but she was also the lead actress in Girl With a Pearl Earring. Academy voters probably split their votes between these two performances, and she didn't got enough votes to secure a nomination.

"Kill Bill" got boned. Not a single nomination. Granted, it's not Tarantino's best ever, but it was pretty damn good. Good enough to get nominated somewhere for something.

I think it should have at least gotten nods for editing and sound, maybe even cinematography -- the movie used all of them to great effect, certainly worthy of recognition.

Then again it might also have to do with the fact, that Kill Bill is a Miramax production and they usually support just one production, which was in this case "Cold Mountain".

Perhaps because it is just part one, maybe the second part will get nominated for something next year  smile

...although, really, Kill Bill is just one half of a movie. One awesome half. I do agree it got boned, though...

...oh, any of you outside America see it all in color? During the massive fight scene with O-Ren Ishii's gang, it goes black and white for a couple minutes. While that may seem cool, I've heard it was to prevent an NC-17 rating... so I'm wondering if anyone saw it in its full-color, gory glory.

Yep, the black & white switch was done to please the MPAA.
The "full-color" version was only released in Japan.

By the way, the BAFTA (British Oscars) were yesterday:

-Return of the King won Best Picture, Adapted Screenplay, Cinematography, VIsual Effects and the Orange award.

-Master and Commander won Best Director, Art Direction, Costume Design and Sound.

-Lost in Translation won Best Actor, Best Actress (not even nominated for the Oscars) and Best Editing

-And the loser of the night was Cold Mountain: 2 awards out of 13 nominations.

depends, if they release it as an unrated version, then they might just do that

then again, i think the black & white part wasn't that bad ... actually it was quite cool

From the quick clips I've seen of Mystic River, I'd just like to say that, to me, it seems the whole thing was extremely overacted. It might be a good movie, yes, but I think the fact that Clint Eastwood directed it is the reason for it's buzz.

That being said, let's move on to movies no one cared about:

While I can understand Matrix Reloaded & Revolutions not getting any acting noms, at least give Revolutions a nomination for best special effects! It might not win, but if anyone saw those swarms of squiddies and the speed at which they moved, not to mention the Machine City, they'd have to at least admit that it looked spectacular! I mean, c'mon, Even Star Wars Episode II got a nomination for best effects. How many people said that sucked balls? Hmm...A lot!

I've seen the movie and I agree with you completely. I don't know what people see in this overacted piece of crap. It's supposed to give suspense.I didn't feel suspense. It's suposed to have great performances. Well, obviously when every actor in the movie, except Kevin Bacon, overacts to the limit, soe people might see "great" performances. Anyways, I think it's highly overrated.

So, the Best British Group with the Best British Rock and the Best British Album isn't the Best Breaktrough Artist? Yeah, sure.

I saw it, and wasn't blown away by the effects at all. Off the top of my head, I'd put LotR, X-Men 2, and Pirates of the Caribbean above it. Those have the best "pure" effects, and I'm sure something else has decent enough "so realistic you don't know they're there" effects.
