Some interesting picks...Not all that excited about them though, although nice to see Ziyi Zhang get the a nod. I think Theron will win that award however. Either than that, I dont think I will be watching this year as it seems pretty lackluster imo.

These nominations reflect my feeling about the films released this year. "meh..."

Although I do have high hopes for King Kong, Brokeback Mountain, and The New World.

A surprise, but not a nice one, in my opinion. While his performance was unique and quirky enough to be perfect for Burton's adaptation, I just don't think it was award worthy. I hope he takes home some awards soon. I just hope it's for performances that are deserving.

I thought it had a lot of dark comedy thrown in the mix. Now, was it enough to warrant the film being labeled a comedy over a drama? Not in my opinion. However, I definitely saw the comedic elements. The movie also would've had a lot stiffer competition in the dramatic categories, so I'm glad it was placed where it was.

Director: Ron Howard.

Cast: Russell Crowe, Renee Zelwegger, Paul Giamatti.
Score: Thomas Newman.
Genre: Biopic.

...if the Academy forgets this movie, everything I thought I knew about them has been proven incorrect. If any film has ever been hand-made for a slew of Oscar nominations (save the summer release), this is the one.

Here's hoping..

I definitely agree. I love dramatic films, and as such, I usually find that I appreciate award-fodder more than the other films. However, this year has been the exact opposite. This year, I've had much more appreciation for Batman Begins, King Kong, The 40 Year Old Virgin, Sin City, etc. Last year (and in most years before it), my love traditionally went to movies like Eternal Sunshine, Sideways, Hotel Rwanda, Maria Full of Grace, The Motorcycle Diaries, and so forth.

And the three week difference is really that significant to you?
it's not the three weeks, it's the fact that all things (including films) revolve around the center of the universe - New York... and then LA

i think becuase it was a comic book movie and the extreme violence (and the director isn't well liked in hollywood since he works mostly independently)

Im very disappointed. 2005 was excellent for movies and IMO brokeback mountain is just not that great. So many others deserve to win over it. I hope the academy agrees with me.

With his win, Phillip Seymour Hoffman now has 16 critic awards to Ledger's 5. He should be in the driver's seat, especially if Capote gets a Best Picture nod. The film has been gaining alot of momentum over the last few weeks.

I wouldn't be surprised if the Supporting choices don't match up. I could still see Oscar going to Giamatti and Michelle Williams.

Remember, Clive Owen and Natalie Portman won Supporting Globes last year and neither one of them got the real gold.

That's not their pick, that's the rules. Movies have to be released in (one/both?) of those markets during a year to be eligible for a nomination.

Be mad at the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences for this, not Dreamworks.

Edit: IV. THEATRICAL EXHIBITION REQUIREMENTS
1. The Qualifying Exhibition: The film must be publicly exhibited for paid admission in a commercial motion picture theater in either Los Angeles County or the Borough of Manhattan in New York for a run of at least seven consecutive days, between 10 am and midnight, by means of 16mm, 35mm or 70mm film or in a 24- or 48-frame progressive scan digital format (minimum native resolution 1280 by 1024 pixels, with pixel bit depth, color primaries, and image and sound file formats suitable for exhibition in commercial Digital Cinema sites), delivered to the screen by an image and sound file format suitable for existing Digital Cinema sites. Here's the whole rules (with a few typos in the years) for anyone who cares http://www.oscars.org/78academyaward...ndex_text.html

what I'm mad about is that Dreamworks should also just give a few other cities the honor of showing the film and not just NYC and LA. Like Warner's had done with Million Dollar Baby release it at the very end of the year in other key market cities.

Did anyone else notice Gwenyth Paltrow's horrid attempt at an english accent? She sounds ridiculous. I wish she would never make another movie.

Nothing wrong with being a switch hitter now and then.

Personally, I thought Keira K, Jessica A and Natalie P looked the best!

I love Scarlett a lot, but this Polly Walker chick (who I have never heard of - I don't watch Rome) gave her a run for her money.
