The Nominations are announced on January 31. Anyone else got predictions to post? Mine is still a work in progress and some of these categories are pure guesses since I have yet to see a few of the remaining contenders.

For the serious Oscar afficionado, the best site out there is OscarWatch.com. If you look at the predictions among its members in the forums and on its main page, you'll do pretty well in any Oscar pool.


Here are my current predictions for Best Picture:
Picture: Brokeback Mountain (probable winner- assuming it can make over 50 million at the box office)
Good Night and Good Luck
King Kong
Munich
Walk the Line

If either Cinderella Man or A History of Violence get a nod in the BEST PICTURE category, I'm going to throw up.

Otherwise, I don't think I'm going out on a limb by saying that Phillip Seymour Hoffman and Reese Witherspoon are locks as Best Actor and Best Actress nominees.

But I'm pulling for Munich for Best Picture and Best Director.

Although I agree with Cinderella Man, I think that A History Of Violence should definitely get a best picture nod.

I don't think King Kong will be up there.

I've now put A History of Violence in a Best Picture spot. The film just won Best Picture from a poll of 100 critics from The Village Voice. The movie seems to be picking up some steam.

Going to go with Picture and Directing right now

Best Picture

Brokeback Mountain
Capote
Cinderella Man
Crash
Good Night, And Good Luck

Replaced The Constant Gardener, Munich and King Kong with Capote, Crash and Good Night, And Good Luck after thinking about the choices and seeing the other awards' results/nominations.

For some reason, I am still feeling that Cinderella Man will sneak into the category (like I stated before about the sneak in by Seabuscuit).

I put Capote in there, well, just because I think it is the best film from 2005 that I have seen. The movie is extraordinary and deserves a spot.

Best Director

George Clooney, Good Night, and Good Luck
Paul Haggis, Crash
Ang Lee, Brokeback Mountain
Bennett Miller, Capote
Steven Speilberg, Munich

Spoiler: Woody Allen, Match Point will replace Haggis or Miller

I think Miller will be the surprise director nod and Speilberg will get in while Munich will stay out of BP.

Put Haggis in there cause Crash (for some odd reason) is actually being honed (is that a word?) as a great film.

I hope I am not way off with Capote in BP and BD. Deserves to be in both.

I could easily see the Academy reward Munich with a Best Director Nomination for Spielberg and leaving it off for Best Picture for something like Crash, Match Point, Good Night..., or Syriana.

One film I don't have for anything is The New World. If that's well received, it could get a few nominations.

Those are, of course, possible choices - but the Academy really loves that epic feel of cinema and they usually reserve one - maybe two - spots for smaller films. But this could turn out to be like 1996 where independent film could overshadow the major studio films. They could go the GG route though - like your point with Munich (which I hope doesn't happen - take King Kong out of BP if they do that, not Munich.)

- Crash - I hope not!

I think Kong is safe at Best Picture. A History of Violence has come on strong of late. I'm hoping they don't forget Cinderella Man, but that could easily happen. Walk the Line is another possible candidate.

When I think of AHOV chances at nods, I think of Mulholland Dr. The movie isn't as much of a 'mind-warp' as MD, but it has scored with critics just the same. They both have intense storylines and intense directors that score more at critics' laurels and GG nods - not the Academy. Would be great to have that type of film (AHOV) receive Oscar attention, though. Personally, I don't see the film up for BP nor BD (love to be wrong, btw!) If I had to choose which one of the two it would get a nod in - Best Director - just like MD.

Sorry, I'm going off on a tangent. I'll stop now so everyone can go back to predicting.

No mentions for Hustle & Flow, which I think could wind up with a few nominations such as Acting, (Terrence Howard + possibly Taryn Manning), Directing, and/or Original Screenplay.

If Hustle & Flow gets anything, it would be Actor for Howard. But the competition this year for that award is very tough and very crowded. I think Strathairn, Phoenix, Hoffman, and Ledger are locks, which leaves 1 spot. It could go to Howard, but also Eric Bana, Viggo Mortensen, Jeff Daniels, Ralph Fiennes, or Russell Crowe, whom I have for the final spot. This is my favorite category this year. So many great performances.

The Constant Gardener comes out on dvd next week. That's a film I didn't think would still be considered. But I'll get to judge for myself on the 10th.

WRITERS GUILD NOMINEES

ORIGINAL SCREENPLAY
Cinderella Man
Crash
The 40 Year Old Virgin
Good Night, and Good Luck
The Squid and the Whale

ADAPTED SCREENPLAY
Brokeback Mountain
Capote
The Constant Gardener
A History of Violence
Syriana

The 40 Year Old Virgin is a bit of a surprise. These usually give a good indication of what will be nominated for the Oscar. It's looking more likely that A History of Violence will be a factor on March 5th.

No recognition for Match Point, King Kong, or Munich. Hmmm

PRODUCERS GUILD NOMINEES

Brokeback Mountain
Capote
Crash
Good Night, and Good Luck
Walk the Line

***dvd screeners for King Kong and Munich were not sent to PGA voters***

I don't think this changes alot. I'm more interested in what the Director's Guild nominates. They seem to match up with the Oscars more so than the PGA.

From all the info gathered, it seems Brokeback Mountain and Good Night, and Good Luck are locks. The PGA's selection of Walk the Line helps that film.

This is Oscar related news...

There are rumors that Jon Stewart will be the host of this year's Academy Awards. I think he's an interesting choice but a good one.

Check out www.oscarwatch.com for more details.

Brokeback Mountain will win best picture this year because it actually is the best picture of the year. Nice change of pace in my opinion.

Well without having seen the film, I would be shocked, shocked if it doesn't win. It just seems like the natural choice.

Judging from the choices, it appears King Kong is out and Munich is in. Also, Crash and Capote get a HUGE boost here with nominations. The DGA matches up best with the Best Picture Oscars. Other than the 5 listed, it appears Walk the Line is #6. It's looking like these 6 films are the finalists for the Oscar race.
