Hustle&Flow????? What the heck, I thought that was some crappy movie made for the wannabe high school kids that wear their hats sideways and wear shorts that sag to their ankles.

Nope I saw Charlie & the Chocolate Factory and Star Wars Ep 3. So I guess in a way King Kong was all I saw and it wasn't even all that great. Comparatively speaking though it was a masterpiece. ;-D

These are my predictions not my choices.

Picture: Crash
Director: Ang Lee (Brokeback Mountain)
Actor: Philip Seymour Hoffman (Capote)
Actress: Reese Witherspoon (Walk the Line)
Supporting Actor: Jake Gyllenhaal (Brokeback Mountain)
Supporting Actress: Rachel Weisz (The Constant Gardener)
Foreign Language Film: Tsotsi (South Africa)

I'm not going to vote on all the minor awards.

Crash will win easily for the same reason it's the most overrated movie of the year: it's a PC feel-good. That's right up Hollywood alley.

P.S. Hoffman is a slam dunk for best actor and it's about time he gets some recognition.

Best Actress was the toughest guess, it's a tough category but Walk The Line has to win something since it's one of this year's better films.

Best supporting actor was another tough one but Gyllenhaal probably deserves it. He should have won for Donnie Darko!

Supporting actress is another slam dunk IMHO. The Constant Gardener is a meandering mess of a movie but Weisz stands out IMO as one of the best performances of the year.

I have only seen two of the foreign language films but I have to go with Tsotsi since it's so powerful I have trouble believing there is another this strong.

The only take I have on the oscars is that I found it weird that Cinderella Man didnt recieve more main nominations other than supporting actor.

Although I liked Crash quite a bit, I too think it's being overrated by many, but I'm curious...what about it makes it a feel good movie? It seemed the exact opposite to me.

Crash is a feelgood movie?!? I felt uncomfortable through that whole movie, and my wife and I certainly didn't seem to be too energetic after watching it.

If anything, that movie was the best downer movie I've ever seen.

Well I think at the end of the movie just about every character has an epiphany and realizes all will be right in the world. But that's not really what I was referring to. I was referring to how everyone can sit around and ballyhoo the social statement and talk about how Crash is enlightening and a move for progress. Everyone gets to feel good because we'll all better people for having seen it.
