  • Stick that pot back in your mouth and shut up.
  • 9 years ago
  • :roll: What?
  • 9 years ago
  • Arent' some of those movies, you know, not out yet?
  • 9 years ago
  • I know that, but I'm always over at Oscarwatch.com, where make daring predictions and see into the future of what will be nominated for Oscar come March 5th, 2006.
  • 9 years ago
  • I prefer to watch them and judge them myself then let some voters to tell me whats good.

  • You don't follow the Oscars that much do you, dogbone.
  • 9 years ago
  • Not since the whole Tomei incident. I dont hold much faith in the whole thing.

  • Son, i shall educate you.

    It really doesn't matter what oscarwatch.com says because they havnt seen the movies that havnt come out yet and neither have you. You are letting your urge to write predictions out-weigh your common sense. just be paitent and wait for there to be a full board before you start making these god damn threads. Or at least stop calling them predictions...because that is not what they are.

    And for the record, Ralph Fiennes will not win the award. IF he gets nominated, it will be by sheer luck. He was very good in the constant gardener but he didn't have more than 100 lines. He wasn't the lead for half the film until the hero shift took place. You had some wise picks but you made tons of mistakes as well. You may have a good idea of the awards but that doesn't mean you have a good sense of what it takes to win an award. films like Crash and the constant gardener do not get nominated for performances. it just doesnt happen. They will get nominated and win for writing, cinematography, and directing. but for the acting awards you need to look at who DOMINATED their film. Which person would the film not have worked without? If it was Kevin Spacey or His brother Joseph in The Constant gardener, would it of made it a much worse film? If Kevin Bacon or Sean Penn were in Crash isntead of Dillon, would it have been worse? The answer is no. and that's what you need to start thinking about before making your oscar picks.

  • But, I'm anticipating and guessing what's going to be nominated for the Oscar. It's pre-mature but I do it anyways.
  • 9 years ago
  • then please call your threads what they are...premature guesses. A prediction is something very different.

  • You know, I went to see Proof totally expecting it to blow me away, and on paper it seems like it was made to be nominated: Oscar winning cast, based on a Pulitzer Prize winning play. I hate to say it, but I was kind of disappointed. I mean, it wasn't bad, but I don't think it lived up to it's expectations at all, which was too bad because I love the cast.

    Welcome to Oscar season. Where overhyped movies get all kinds of nominations they can use in their ad campaigns in hopes to get viewers to see a film they normally wouldn't because they can tell it's going to be a run-of-the-mill, made by the book, ordinary Hollywood drama. Can you tell I have strong feelings about the Academy and Golden Globes. :D

  • Some of these predictions just seem rediculous to me. Infact pretty much all of them do. They haven't even listed the freaking nominations yet have they? I guess some people just can't keep it in their pants. :roll:
  • 8 years ago
  • Well, I am not a major fan of Oscars and dont care much way either but I think The AMPAS will go for Rachel Weisz. Ill tell you my reasons:

    Everyone thinks Michelle Williams has the top spot. Mark my words, she hasnt. She is incredible in Brokeback but so is Ledger. Far more importantly, she is a TV actress and this is her first major role. On the contrary, Weisz is excellent and plays a multi faceted character. On top she is maybe Gardener's only chance of a win. Furthermore, she has established herself as an actress in Behind Enemy Lines and Runaway Jury and also has the blockbuster Mummy films to her credit. She is a more "stable choice".

    For Williams, it is "Hey, the movie is excellent and so are Ledger and Williams"; for Weisz it is "What a performance! She takes the movie to another level!"

    As for SAG, I think Weisz is the possible winner, but maybe (my gut feeling tells me) Keener might walk away with the award.In that case the competition at AMPAS toughens, but it will likely be Weisz (with Keener playing default). Im certain Williams wont win.

    Remember last year, everyone predicted Madsen. I pinned for Blanchett. You know what counted the most? The snub for Elizabeth in 1998. Critics said it was one of the worst snubs in Oscar history (i fully agree). Its high time she was given an Oscar (plus with the LOTR publicity, it was obvious) I say again, Weisz is the more "stable choice" this year.
