Well, this crapfest is going off tonight. Here's who's going to win (not necessarily who should) and the Vegas odds:

Actor: Forest Whitaker (2-11)
Supporting Actor: Eddie Murphy (2-5)
Actress: Helen Mirren (1-25)
Sup. Actress: Jennifer Hudson (1-12)
Director: Scorsese (1-10)
Picture: The Departed (1-2)

(this is according to Vegas odds---they were right on with the Globes). the only closely contested races look to be Best Picture (Babel is a close second by the oddsmakers at 1-1) and Supporting Actor (Alan Arkin 2-1). So if any of you are going to Oscar parties and there are gambling pools, hope you win some cash. better yet, if you're going to an Oscar party, go ahead and propose a $10/person pool. You'll clean up.

Courtney, that would be quite an upset. Right now, you'd have to bet $1000 to win $100 on Scorsese. In terms of heavy favorites, that would be coined a near-lock.

Cadillac has a commercial with M. Ward singing... Only reason I put this in this thread is because my wife is watching the crappy Red Carpet E! show and I just saw it. Strange combination (M. Ward and Caddy).

Courtney
02-25-2007, 02:51 PM
Oh, I haven't looked at the odds at all. But I do think that he deserves to win. The work that Eastwood has done recently on Letters from Iwo Jima and Flags of Our Fathers is certainly Oscar-worthy, in my opinion. And I just wasn't really all that impressed with The Departed, despite my love of earlier Scorsese like Goodfellas.

It's got mo'mentum. They'll throw Scorsese the director's bone and give Little Miss Sunshine the big picture. Leonardi wins actor. Not sure about the actress.

(this is according to Vegas odds---

Hey bro, not to be an ass in your thread or anything, but Vegas doesn't have entertainment wagers. We're not allowed. The Nevada Gaming Commission doesn't allow it; as far as I know has never allowed it. The coin toss in the Super Bowl can't even be wagered on. The amount of time Billie Joel was taking on the Anthem or which songs Prince was singing were not allowed wagers on. Only off shores like Bodog [complete shit] and Pinnacle can take bets like that.

When the Oscar annoucer said "The Departed was based on a Japanese film, Infernal Affairs" during the award for Best Adapted Screenplay, she got it wrong. Infernal Affairs is a Chinese film not Japanese.

Well in the Departed, chinese spies are suppose to speak Manderian not Cantonese.

wmgaretjax
02-25-2007, 10:13 PM
Pan lost to a very good film. It's totally reasonable that "The Lives of Others" won.

I'm pissed that Children of Men didn't take anything. It's a shame, it was the best American film this year (along with Inland Empire). I really think it deserved Best Cinematography. I'm glad Murphy was upset, too bad it wasn't for Haley instead.

Sadly, I bet nothing. I won a little bit of money of Arizona State covering the spread against Arizona today, and didn't feel the need to bet on the Oscars. My wife won $10 on a $20 bet, though. Departed for best pic. She hadn't even seen the movie but we're watching it right now...

Tessa, that's from Lost in Translation, when Bill Murray is doin the commercial.
I think that Morricone was definitely emotionally moved by this. In one year, he wins his first oscar and conducts his first show in America. It's probably a lot for him to deal with.

CuervoPH
02-26-2007, 03:51 AM
Dang. Someone beat me to it. Yep, that was "Lost In Translation", and it was a hilarious scene.

I can't believe "Babel" didn't win anything. I think "The Departed" was a well-done movie, but it was a scene-for-scene remake of "Infernal Affairs". I guess given the director and the cast that was assembled, it's hard not to give the movie some recognition, but I think "Babel" would have been my first choice as best movie (and I'm saying that as someone who really enjoyed "The Departed").

I was glad to see Forest Whittaker get the best actor award. His performace was phenomenal in "Last King Of Scotland".

DeltaSigChi4
02-26-2007, 05:44 AM

Babel won the first award (whatever it was) -- that was the only one I got in the first 10 awards in our pool. Boo to me.

Also, will someone explain to me why The Queen was nominated for so much -- other than Helen Mirrren's performance, I thought it was entirely pleasant and nice and average. Certainly not Best Picture or Best Director worthy...

I agree that "Babel" should have won Best Picture over "The Departed", but have you even seen "Infernal Affairs"?? Sure, they took a lot of elements from the film, but it was far from a "scene for scene" remake. I was never a big fan of "Infernal Affairs" when I first saw it. "The Departed", however, I loved. William Monahan deserves all the praise he's getting for his adaptation of the original film. "The Departed" had far better character developement and brought you into the story much more than the original Hong Kong (that's right, NOT JAPANESE!!) film was able to do. Perhaps a lot was lost in the translation, but I felt "Infrenal Affairs" was very disjointed and I was never able to connect with any of the characters. "The Departed" was totally different. One thing is for absolute certain ... the ending for "the Departed" is completely different. This in no way was a scene for scene remake.

The fact that "Children of Men" didn't take home the cinematography award is a crime!

CuervoPH
02-26-2007, 07:47 AM
Yeah...I saw "Infernal Affairs" and I did mispeak above. It was structured similarly and was in many instances a scene for scene remake, but you are right in that there are some significant differences, most notably the ending.

I actually saw "The Departed" before I saw "Infernal Affairs", so that is probably why "Infernal Affairs" didn't seem disjointed to me. And I was glad to see Scorsese get Best Director, but like you, I did think "Babel" should have gotten Best Picture.

Sorry Cuervo. I hope it didn't seem like i was attacking you.

I recently watched "Infernal Affairs 2", which I enjoyed much more than the first one. In fact, it seems as if both of these films were used to structure "The Departed". Although I liked the prequel much more than the original, there is still something that doesn't entirely grab me about these films. Though after watching "The Departed" and revisiting these films they do tend to seem more cohesive than my first impression. I am going to try and complete the trilogy sometime this week, but I'm just no the biggest fan of Andy Lau.

My head almost exploded when someone said that The Departed was a shot-to-shot remake of Infernal Affairs. I love both flicks for different reasons. Reasons I cannot afford talking about in a reply that would undoubtedly take me about 20 minutes.

I was, however, surprised that Departed took home best picture. I thought they would FINALLY give Scorsese his director statue (I mean..look at the competition- besides Inarittu, there was no real competitor; it would have been a much more difficult race [for me at least] if Del Toro and Cuaron were nominated). I thought Babel would be the "upset." I wouldn't have cared. I actually enjoyed Babel.

Eh. I didn't see any of the films nominated for Best Picture. Honestly? I thought Children of Men was the best film released in the past year, bar none. I wanted to see the Departed, but I can take only so much Jack Nicholson, and it's hard to take him seriously as of late. As for Babel? Aside from being interested by Rinko Kikushi (sp?)'s plotline, I didn't want to see Crash in the movie theatres two years in a row, sorry. Little Miss Sunshine? Not worth my 10$. I also think that the academy skewerd Leonardo DiCaprio in terms of him winning Best Actor by nominating him for Blood Diamond (which was alright, but word of the mouth is that his Departed role was much better) and the Academy felt like tossing two bones in the direction of African American actors since it's Black History Month (okay, that's not fair, I admit, and Forrest Whittaker was phenominal in the Last King of Scotland. But Jennifer Hudson? Who sings more than ACTS in Dreamgirls?... RIGHT.). I'm just genuinely dissapointed by the overall choice of films to represent the industry's best while some of the best films this year; Children of Men, Borat, Pan's Labyrinth, were snubbed. =/

Sure, they took a lot of elements from the film, but it was far from a "scene for scene" remake. I was never a big fan of "Infernal Affairs" when I first saw it. "The Departed", however, I loved. William Monahan deserves all the praise he's getting for his adaptation of the original film. "The Departed" had far better character developement and brought you into the story much more than the original Hong Kong (that's right, NOT JAPANESE!!) film was able to do. Perhaps a lot was lost in the translation, but I felt "Infrenal Affairs" was very disjointed and I was never able to connect with any of the characters. "The Departed" was totally different. One thing is for absolute certain ... the ending for "the Departed" is completely different. This in no way was a scene for scene remake.

The fact that "Children of Men" didn't take home the cinematography award is a crime!

I feel the same way I try and tell people this but they don't listen.

i thought babel was "eh". i really didn't like when gael garcia ripped off the chicken's head.

i love how that is the shining example of why the movie was "eh."

the montages just waste time

i disagree. when used correctly, montages allow you to get immense amounts of work done throughout the duration of one measly song.

YA thats so true. Pan's had good cinematography also, but Children of men just edge forward with some of those awesome non-cut shots + the combat stuff (which sometimes is the same...)

that wasn't meant to be the shining example. i disliked it for a variety of other reasons, but the animal cruelty topped it off.
