I hate to sound like a fanboy, but the fact that The Fountain didn't get a nod for ANYTHING makes me feel like there's a deliberate snub somehow. Not assuming that everyone would agree it's deserving, but just the fact that it didn't even get a mention in art direction, score, etc. That's just amazing to me because it was so dependent on the visual and audible. Just...something odd with that.

i wouldn't be surprised if penelope cruz wins for volver. she was good, i'm not saying she's better than the others, but that cleavage would make a good oscar speech photo op.

the oscars rarely ever seem to mean much anyways. they're not really a true measure of artistic achievement, IMO.

and gabe, perhaps the oscar discussion in the movie thread would be more prominent if the nominations were presented like they are above.

Shame that Children of Men and The Prestige didn't get nominations for anything other than script, editing or technical stuff like that..those were amazing films...clive owen deserves better as well.

Oh well, ryan gosling should win best actor...plus, his movie, half nelson, the soundtrack was done by broken social scene and 'shampoo suicide' was perfectly utilized...that is all, be seeing you

I'd like to see Babel, Half Nelson, The Departed, and possibly Little Children and Dreamgirls of those nominated movies.

I saw Little Miss Sunshine, and although it was a cute movie, I'm not sure if it should have been nominated for Oscars. Usually those sort of comedies get passed over as a general rule. The make up of the characters just did not seem natural--too many weird dysfunctional people all in the same family, and only one of them addicted to drugs. But I did laugh uproariously at many scenes.

What I think will win each category.

1. Best Picture:
"Babel,"

2. Actor:
Forest Whitaker, "The Last King of Scotland."

3. Actress:
Helen Mirren, "The Queen";
(Although there's a very good chance Cruz will steal it. Hollywood likes there beauties)

4. Supporting Actor:
Eddie Murphy, "Dreamgirls" (it's a hunch. I like Mark Wahlberg, but really?? For this role?)

5. Supporting Actress:
Jennifer Hudson, "Dreamgirls" (This is probably the toughest field. I love both the girls from Babel. I wish they could tie and get an award together. They truly made the film worth watching. Didn't see Dreamgirls, but this seems like the critics choice)

6. Directing:
Martin Scorsese, "The Departed" (So what if it's not his best film. He deserves an award at this point and why not for this one? It's one of the best edge of your seat thrillers I've seen in a long time & I saw the original "Infernal Affairs" before this came out. I mean look at all the great performances he got out of those boys.)

7. Foreign Language Film:
"Pan's Labyrinth," Mexico. (The Lives of Others has a really good shot at getting this too, but I have yet to see it.)

8. Adapted Screenplay:
William Monahan, "The Departed" (what was Borat adapted from???? As I said before, I saw the original "Infernal Affairs" and wasn't tat big of a fan. This screenplay really beefed up the original and gave it more depth. You couldn't ask for a better adaptation of an asian film than this)

9. Original Screenplay:
Michael Arndt,"Little Miss Sunshine" (Though I really believe the Queen will get this one, this could be Little Miss Sunshine's award for sure)

10. Animated Feature Film:
"Cars,"

11. Art Direction:
"Dreamgirls,"

12. Cinematography:
"Children of Men," (Hands down!! Fucking incredible!)

13. Sound Mixing:
"Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest."

14. Sound Editing:
"Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest."

15. Original Score:
"Pan's Labyrinth," Javier Navarrete;

16. Original Song:
hmmmm pick any of the Dreamgirls songs. not sure (Definately not "Cop Rock" Randy Newman this time)

17. Costume:
"Marie Antoinette," (The strongest thing this movie had going for it)

18. Documentary Feature:
"Jesus Camp," (or "Inconvenient Truth")

19. Documentary (short subject):
"Rehearsing a Dream" (totally guessing on this one)

20. Film Editing:
"Children of Men"

21. Makeup:
"Pan's Labyrinth." (Click??? hahaha.)

22. Animated Short Film:
"The Little Matchgirl," (I like the sound of this one & "Lifted")

23. Live Action Short Film:
"Binta and the Great Idea (Binta Y La Gran Idea),"

24. Visual Effects:
"Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest,"

Sorry Schoolo. I don't mean to offend your thread. I didn't know that you were discussing the nominations in your thread. And when I posted the thread about Pan's Labyrinth, I did that so the thread would be about one film. Not many like your thread is.

We try to keep all the movie discussion in that one thread. Just like all the interesting articles go in to Articles thread, all the pics go in the Random Pics thread, all the Youtube videos go in THAT thread, etc. If we don't do that, Psychic Friend gets mad because we have multiple threads when we only need one thread per major topic of discussion.

syriana was a good movie. it had everything i wished "24" did. i just started watching that show a week back and was very disappointed. too much "on the nose" exposition in the dialogue. just assume we know the facts instead of beating us over the head with it.

chairmenmeow47
01-23-2007, 11:37 AM
meh, syriana was a disappointment. i really liked traffic, but syriana just didn't have the same appeal. plus, it seemed like it was trying to reveal some secret about the oil corporations that i think most people that care are already familiar with. it wasn't bad, but it wasn't great.

didn't really have much new information and was confusing as hell. that's just my opinion though, i've never seen 24 though :)

chunk
01-23-2007, 11:45 AM
the complexities of the oil world was the movies appeal. that and the fact they didnt dumb down intenational issues like "24".

are oil companies corrupt? maybe, probably. but the way this filmed explained this specific scenario was timely, pertinent, and fascinating.

and what i'm saying is that the complexities weren't complex enough. again, this is just my opinion, but i felt like syriana was touted as some groundbreaking insight into the oil world when i felt like i already knew a lot of what they were talking about.

so in my opinion, it wasn't facinating, it was day old bread.

there were stories of U.S. intellegence folk crossing over, lawyers betraying their superiors for the benefit of the company and dollar, and sympathetic enemy combatants.

chairmenmeow47
01-23-2007, 11:54 AM
which again, was nothing surprising. it's just my opinion, so i'm not trying to change your mind, but what i'm trying to say is i expected more interesting insights into the oil world than what we already know.

and you're right, it could have been way more hollywood which is why i didn't think it was bad, but it wasn't really good either. and while traffic didn't exactly tell us a bunch of information new information either, it did have a better emotional plot to connect with, i cared about those characters way more than syriana. i cared about the suicide bomber storyline, but that's about it.

You said one of the only movies you saw last year was "Thank You For Not Smoking" - then you said that it should have been nominated. You don't know what you're talking about. See more movies if you'd like to have an opinion. No one brought up 24, so I don't understand why you can't get off the topic. STFU because you were annoying on the old board and are even more so now.

I never said your opinion on "Syriana" was stupid. I agree with you wholeheartedly, in fact.

You said the movie corner sucks simply because I pointed out that we don't need a thread for every single movie-related topic when there is already one that covers them all. I called you an idiot because, whether or not you like & understand "Syriana", you are an idiot.

How many of those films did you see with Stephanie?

How many times did you two get thrown out of the theater after she started beating you and making a scene?

I can't believe Control got completely shut out.The lead actor,director,and cinematographer all deserved acknowledgement,IMO.Much better film than Atonement.
Also somewhat surprised by the lack of a nomination for the lead actor in Into The Wild.
