I've seen all of them, they are really good, but if I had to choose one to win I would vote for Michael Clayton. It's so well made and the story is amazing. It's George Clooney's best performance.
No country for old men, should win only for directing and best supporting actor for Javier Bardem, because he is amazing in this film.
Atonement, is very good too, I love the story, it's really sad, but I don't think it should win best movie, it should win best adapted screenplay
There will be blood, is so good, I just became a Daniel Day Lewis fan, he deserves the Oscar for best actor. This movie has a good chance of winning.
Juno, is very original, the movie is cool, but not in the level of the other nominees.
It's going to stay between No country for old men and There will be blood.
I honestly think the last Harry potter movie has a chance. It's the last of the series and very well done. Also, the same thing happened to lord of the rings movies, the last of the trilogy won best picture.
What are your predictions for Oscar nominees and/or winners for this year?
Picture: Babel (there is only one category for Best Picture. The Academy Awards don't divide comedy/musicals and drama)
Director: Martin Scorsese for the Departed
Actor: Forest Whittaker for Last King of Scotland
Actress: Helen Mirren for The Queen
Supporting Actor: Jack Nicholson in The Departed
Supporting Actress: Jennifer Hudson for Dreamgirls
This years Oscar nominees for Best picture:Good or Bad?
You should try to see some of the movies that are nominated, you can't judge if you haven't even wath them, rigth?
I higly reccomend the movie "Pan's Laberynt", wich is nominated for best Foreing Languaje Movie. It is a great fairy tail for adults, full of feelings - from the best feelings in the heart of a girl to the worst hate in the men. It has some very violent scenes, but they are completely justified to tell the story.
You can imagine the quality of the movie, when it has gotten another 5 nominations in other categories as well.
In the other hand, i hadn't watch "Babel" but i know Iñarritu always make good movies,yes, they are dramatic, but usually very well done.
Try to see those, you migth be sorprised how good are they!
You let me know.
Do you think any of the women Oscar nominees will auction their dresses to buy food for starving children?
Some will (it's not as if they can ever wear it again!). Try checking out the website for Clothes off Our Back, which has already started auctioning some items.
What do you think of the Oscar nominees (link included)?
Yeah, it's a shame Sweeney Todd didn't get many nominations. Still, congratulations, Johnny!
Only problem I had with the nominations? Take a look at the noms for best makeup:
La Vie en Rose
Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End
NORBIT?!!! You're kidding me, right?! Norbit got a nomination for makeup and Sweeney Todd didn't?! What kind of a world do we live in where a film like Norbit actually gets an Oscar nomination?!!
Nominees are picked by the academy after lots of "research" (see link below). Winners are also picked by the members of the Academy from the 5 nominees.
Who is the academy you might ask?
"The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences is a professional honorary organization composed of over 6,000 motion picture craftsmen and women."
I think the following films are frontrunners at this point:
Definitely Inception and Toy Story 3.
Probably The Kids Are All Right and The Social Network.
Maybe Hereafter, but I wouldn't count on it.
However, I wouldn't completely count out The Ghost Writer.
The movies with the real shots aren't out yet:
Black Swan, True Grit, Love & Other Drugs, Blue Valentine, The King's Speech, and maybe 127 Hours. Also, I think The Conspirator would have a great chance if they decide to release it this year.
Where can i find the 2010 oscar nominees in short films/animation part?
Nominees for the 2010 Academy Awards will be announced February 2, 2010. (Oscars are March 7, 2010, not in February) Since the criteria for short films is that they must have a three day paid admission run in Los Angeles with at least 2 showings a day or have won a major film festival award by September 30, 2009 you can see that it would be impossible to have any kind of a list by now.
Check back at the Oscar site on 2/2/2010 for the list of nominees:
What are Your Favorite Films from these Past Oscar Nominees/Winners?
* Christian Bale- The Fighter, The Prestige, The Dark Knight

how can i watch the oscar nominees before the awards ceremony?
You either need to find them on a Video on Demand service, or find it in a theater (some smaller theaters show them fairly late).
Oscar buzz is often mentioned before many movies even get their wide releases, so if you pay attention to news like that, there's always plenty of time to see them before the awards show.
Do family members of Oscar nominees sit with the nominees?
the nominees usually have their parents, spouse, or a family member sitting right next to them - or all of them. at the BAFTA awards, i think, Kate had her parents sitting right next to her.
i mean, she had her husband sam sitting right next to her? it's not easy to get several tickets in the front row for one nominee's family...i don't think so.
Yes. it's happened before, and it'll probably happen again.
Peter Finch is the only posthumous winner, and James Dean, Spencer Tracy, and Massimo Troisi are the only other posthumously nominated performers in this category. Dean was posthumously nominated twice.
They were OK but they should have nominated The Dark Knight for the best picture category ( I am talking about just a nomination, TDK can never be a winner ). At least, they should give room for the blockbusters to do well at the Oscars and I think they should... they must put an action/thriller movie with some sensible plot every year in the best picture category, I thought that The Dark Knight had a very sensible and plausible plot and it deals with several complicated moral issues althought in a different manner.
If they continue to ignore such movies people will lost interest in Oscars.... they will become Academy awards for low budget movies.
