Academy Awards

¦¦ I’ve spent an hour wrestling with HTML coding for tables, trying to create a 4 column by 9 row table to list my Oscar predictions, deserveds and sentimental favourites. Alas, I am HTML-challenged. So I’ll do it the old fashioned way, one line at a time.

I’ve seen every movie nominated in these eight categories this year excepy Y Tu Mamá También, for Best Original Screenplay. My picks are listed as Will Win (W), Deserves to Win (D), Hope It/She/He Wins (H):

Film: Chicago (W), Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers (D), Gangs of New York (H)
Actor: Jack Nicholson (W), Daniel Day-Lewis (D), Daniel Day Lewis (H)
Actress: Renée Zellweger (W), Salma Hayek (D), Julianne Moore (H)
S Actor: Chris Cooper (W, D, H)
S Actress: Catherine Zeta-Jones (W), Meryl Streep (D), Catherine Zeta-Jones (H)
Director: Martin Scorsese (W), Rob Marshall (D), Martin Scorsese (H)
Original Screenplay: Gangs of New York (W, D, H)
Adapted Screenplay: Adaptation (W), The Hours (D), The Pianist (H)

Glaring Omissions and Oddities: Denis Quaid in Far From Heaven, Minority Report in many categories, especially Visual Effects, Peter Jackson for Best Director (LOTR:TTT). Can anyone tell me how My Big Fat Greek Wedding received a nomination for Original Screenplay? Wasn’t the movie adapted from Nia Vardalos’s one-woman play? The most insane nominations in a category: Frida and The Time Machine in Best Makeup! What is up with THAT? Was it that difficult to design a unibrow? Did none of the nominators see Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers, The Hours, Minority Report, or even Star Wars: The Attack of the Clones??? Good grief…

Should be a fun evening, lots of quality movies this year.

    hi roman. you are right about LOTR. It really is a pity. I havent been catching up on the movies lately but I think I will watch The Pianist. You watched it right? Was it really that good?
