My mind won't let me comprehend all that right now.... on mi way to da frige fir enother beir!!!!!!:cool:

Re: 2010 Oscar Predictions

I would still love to see Jackie Earle Haley pull a massive upset and get a supporting actor nom for Walter Kovacs / Rorschach in Watchmen.

And if the Academy knew what they were doing Mélanie Laurent and Diane Kruger should be at the forefront of the actress categories.

Of all the years Pixar has made a better film than a live action, this year is even more so.  Up goes beyond just a kids movie with the wife dying and the old man being violent and evicted.....I think it has a good chance to go beyond Animated all the way to Best Picture.  We'll have to wait until the nominees are announced I guess

Oh I think it will get a nom for sure. With the Best Picture list to 10 it's going to be in there. Winning best picture is a completely different story though.
Inglourious Basterds- It is Tarantino's time. Not only being one of the best films to come out this decade, It's Tarantino's time.
Nine- Rob Marshall has made such a great Musical it needs to be noticed. This film blew me away. I'm not a fan of Musicals, hell I try to stay away from th but this is next to Inglourious Basterds the film that should win.
Avatar- Again I have yet to see it, in 28ish hours we can start to comment on this but for the time being this has Hollywood talking!!
Up In the Air- This could win. It was a solid picture. Reitman is a stinger with everything he touches. It could happen.
The Hurt Locker- Now here is a film, that has had a year to get lost in this conversation, yet the film was so damn intriguing and Bigelow's direction was superb. The fact that this has stayed in people minds and we are still talking about it speaks volumes. And come on it would be damn cool to have the director that brought us Near Dark and Strange Days win an oscar.
Up- I would love nothing less than to see an animated film especially one of this caliber win the oscar again. I just don't think its the year, there is too much greatness. And Wall*E should have won BP last year if we want to get into that argument.
(500) Days of Summer- This is like the "Little Miss Sunshine" nom, and it has a damn good chance of getting recognised. It was a near perfection picture in its Field.
An Education- All that needs to be said is Scherfig, Dogme95, She needs recognition.
Invictus- You know it's going to be there, and although it's an entertaining film... Great or Best Picture worthy?? I think not. Its Clint and that's why it will have Major pull but that's the wonderfully corrupt Academy there. But If Basterds wins boy the Academy is back in there game!!
A Serious Man- Like Invictus it has the star power director behind it. It is a beautiful film But the Cohens have made better (and that better wasn't NCFOM There Will Be Blood was fucking ROBBED!!!!!!); I think A Single Man is more deserving of a nom.

I have also stated my oppinion of Precious in an earlier post.

Fourteen and a half hours until the madness begins!!! big_smile

...and Avatar your time has come and gone. Basterds to reign supreme!!!!

Re: 2010 Oscar Predictions

Still hoping Moon snabs the 'original screenplay' award it deserves to in my opinion.

Re: 2010 Oscar Predictions

The Hurt Locker deserves to win the majors -- best picture/director/screenplay/writer/leading actor, but it won't.  Christoph Waltz deserves to win best supporting actor, and will.  It will be the only award given to the person who truly deserves it.

Re: 2010 Oscar Predictions

Doesn't really matter who wins to me, I just like good movies  http://kebawe.com/smellies/smellie_cool.gif

Re: 2010 Oscar Predictions

Up is probably going to get top animated, Avatar best fx (d9 should get it imo), avatar for art direction, editing i have no idea its fair game (would love to see d9 get it hint hint).

Honestly though, i think Coraline should get top animated hands down, i have a huge respect for stop motion the time and mastery it takes to do.

Re: 2010 Oscar Predictions

51% on my predictions
Thought I'd do a bit better but some interesting noms there.

Re: 2010 Oscar Predictions

I'm probably the only one on this entire forum who would say I thought Coraline and The Fantastic Mr Fox were both better then Up.  I just didnt see what the big deal was with Up....I enjoyed it but best film of the year?  Really?  But of course up will win best animated film.  It's up for best animated movie and is the only animated movie to also be picked as one of the 10 films for best picture?  So that right there gives that away.....

.....although I could be wrong.  I recall Pan's Labyrinth nominated for a big handful of technical awards, even winning some but still losing to another foreign film......I was shocked there

Re: 2010 Oscar Predictions

I just hope The Hurt Locker wins best picture. I would also be happy if D9 won best picture.
