    Any thoughts and opinions on the nominees? I thought Paul Giamatti was extremely unlucky to miss out for Best Actor. He was brilliant in Sideways, absolutely brilliant. However its tough to cut so many great performances to five. A case for Jim Carrey can also be made for his awesome performance in Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind, but I didn't think he'd get one in the first place.

    As much as I loved Johnny Depp in Finding Neverland, I actually agreed with Ebert. He's done better roles, and Paul Giamatti deserved Depp's spot. Still no complaints though as they all put in great performances. I personally would love for Don Cheadle to win it for his performance in Hotel Rwanda, but I don't think that film has achieved enough exposure, despite the word of mouth for it growing. I also hope Morgan Freeman takes out best supporting actor, because though Clive Owen was great in Closer, Freeman deserves one. He's been snubbed much too many times.

    Regarding best picture, I'm still torn. I haven't seen Aviator yet, but I'm sure it'll take out best picture anyway purely because of the hype it has received.

    My early tips: (Note: not who I want to win)

    Best Film: The Aviator
    Best Actor: Jaimie Foxx
    Best Supporting Actor: Clive Owen or Morgan Freeman (too close to call)
    Best Actress: Kate Winslet
    Best Supporting Actress: Cate Blanchett
    Best Direction: Clint Eastwood.

    I'm pretty sure the great Scoresese will miss out again. Unlucky but Eastwood deserves it. At least Scorsese will lose it to someone brilliant this time.

    I agree with you mostly, but I think Hilary Swank will win Best Actress.

    The more I think about it, the more you're probably right. I am just wondering if they'll give it to her again. Yes I know Tom Hanks won best actor two years in a row, but I'm not 100% sure if Swank will be given one again so soon. I think Winslet has a chance.

    The Oscars have snubbed Eternal Sunshine a fair bit though, so in the end you may turn out to be correct.

    Im not too sure if theyll give Hillary Swank it again.. Kate might win it but Catalina Sandino Moreno deserves it . As for Actor.. its down to Leo, Clint and Jamie Foxx.. while Jamie Foxx has won at both critic's choice and Golden Globes I dont think the Academy will give him it.. they had that show 3 years ago.... or they coud give it to him for best supporting Actor... why else would they put him in a category for role that doesnt deserve a nomination.. and we'll have another Cuba Gooding Jr. moment all over again...I want Natalie to win for supporting actress as she did at the Golden Globes.... still hopeful on that one.
    As for best Supporting Actor... Morgan Freeman should get it but Clive Owen will probably get it.

    Very few, thankfully.. I know I have my own tastes and others have their's, but IMO its been a very lean year for films.. I don't think I have seen one 2004 release tbh, unless the Bourne Supremacy was 2004 and not 2003

    I'm not going to criticise you because everyone has different tastes in movies, but I really don't know how you can call this year a lean year.

    Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind
    Garden State
    Sideways
    Ray
    Closer
    Hotel Rwanda
    Collateral
    Closer
    The Passion Of The Christ (Whether Christian or not, one must appreciate how well this was filmed)
    Finding Neverland
    The Incredibles (If there wasn't a special category for animated films that could have a chance at Best Picture).
    The Aviator (Apparently from what I've heard)

    and IMO the best of the year Million Dollar Baby. If you haven't seen these films, how can you call it a lean year?

    The Bourne Supremacy was a nice action flick and a good sequel. On top of that I'm a huge Matt Damon fan. But which ever way you look at it, its not winning any Oscars or other awards, and it doesn't deserve to either.

    Jamie Foxx was great in Collateral IMO, and I do think it deserves a nomination, but I don't think there's any chance of him winning it. Surely either Morgan Freeman or Clive Owen will take it?

    However I did read Ebert's column which makes a lot of sense:

    Give Jamie Foxx best supporting actor, which then allows for Clint to take best actor, and then Scorsese finally gets his award for best director.

    However I'll be disappointed if Morgan Freeman doesn't take out the Oscar for best supporting role. If he does not get it, I'd only want Clive Owen to take it for Closer, because Jamie Foxx's performance in Ray deserves an Oscar much more than his role in Collateral. That being said, I still think (like I said) it was worthy of being nominated. However David Carradine was unlucky not to be nominated for Kill Bill Vol 2, even if I knew it would never happen. He was awesome in that.

    Do you have the link for that column?.
    David Carradine was cool...memories of Kung Fu
    The part originally had Warren Beatty but Quentin kept telling him to act more like David Carradine lol... when he came he fitted the part perfectly and Warren Beatty stepped aside... Quentin Tarantino is a genius!

    Apologies for the extremely late reply SupaFreak, here is the link to Ebert's article.

    http://rogerebert.suntimes.com/apps/...CARS/501250302

    Here is an extract from what I'm referring to:
    Jamie Foxx's two nominations, as actor for "Ray" and supporting actor for "Collateral," is not unprecedented in Oscar history, but will inspire endless speculation among Oscar-watchers: Will it hurt him or help him? One Tuesday morning theory: Foxx would win for best actor for "Ray" if it weren't for the "Collateral" nomination, which will draw away some of his votes, allowing Eastwood to win for the first time as an actor, and therefore allowing voters to choose Scorsese over Eastwood as director. Foxx, in this scenario, may well have more total votes than any other actors, yet lose in both categories

    i would agree with all the movies in your list except probably the passion...in fact the number of really good movies is probably more than usual this year...

    Whilst The Passion isn't anywhere near as good as the films up for the Oscars (or for that matter those that missed out), I thought Caviezel was absolutely amazing in it, and felt it was very well directed.

    I definitely agree though, its odd how many great movies came out this year. But with great films come awesome performances, and that's what made the Oscars so tough this year. It was a great year for actors. You had over 10 guys who would have been nominated in most years: Giammati, Carrey, Cheadle, Neeson, Clint, Bardem, Bridges, Foxx, Dicaprio, Cruise, Caviezel and Depp.

    This is arguably the strongest acting class of one year in the history of film.
