There's no way that No Country for Old Men will not get a Best Pic nomination.

Anyone else think that La Viv En Rose can get a few nods like Actress and Forgien Language film? I'd also love to see Lust Caution get a couple of nods as well, but its prob wishfull thinking.

Getting a big "Silence of the Lambs" vibe from "No Country", from what I've seen and heard so far, but the Academy went out on a limb last year rewarding a thriller, could they do it again consecutive years?

I'll probably break my Burton embargo and see it, but so far Buron has made only 1 movie I liked "Ed Wood", 1 that was OK and the rest I have hated with every fiber in my being.

Well, incredibly, "Big Fish" is one of the three Burton films I *didn't* like. Didn't hate it, but it just didn't move me. I also didn't like "Planet of the Apes" and "Mars Attacks". OK, I hated the latter.

I havn't seen it either but all of the buzz and awards it has already received seems to make this a front runner for any awards.

Marion Cotillard is a dead certain lock for a Best Actress nomination. She'd probably be a lock to win if the movie was in English and more voters would watch their screeners. I still think it's possible if enough support builds and if she can overcome the a) Julie Christie veteran vote (not to disparage her excellent work in Away from Her), the b) Amy Adams "anoint the new Hollywood princess" vote, and the c) Laura Linney "very good actress who hasn't won yet" vote. I guess that's a lot to overcome, but still...

La Vie en Rose will not be nominated for Best Foreign Language film, however. Each country is only allowed to submit one movie for consideration for the award (one of the most idiotic Academy rules in existence), and France's selection this year is Persepolis.

By the way, La Vie en Rose and Away from Her are both already available on DVD/Netflix, if anyone wants to get a head start on the Best Actress race this year. Both of these actresses will be nominated.

This is the movie I've been waiting for all year. I was surprised to hear in an interview with Depp and Burton that it's already a contender for an Oscar.

Johnny Depp deserved an Oscar for The Libertine, but that movie was completely overlooked at the time.

Well I've seen two of the big Oscar movies coming out this christmas (Sweeney Todd and Charlie Wilsons War) and I'm here to tell you that No Country For Old Men is still the front runner. Sweeney Todd may get a nomination but it's not winning material.

Sure, but it's an internet bet so only something internet related.

It would brighten me up if Fincher's Zodiac gets nominated for Best Picture, Direction and Best Actor (Downey). I'm also rooting for Gone Baby Gone, Eastern Promises, American Gangster and No Country For Old Men.

I predict you're going to be sorely disappointed on nomination day.

Except, of course, where NCFOM is concerned.

Thought Zodiac quite overrated, to be honest. Stil very good, but overrated relative to how well it was rated.

Are we posting critic and critic groups top ten lists in this thread or should someone start a new one?

Jeff Wells of Hollywood Elsewhere posted his top 10 this morning:

Thinking back to Eastern Promises, I think that ending will kill the movies potential for awards. It's a solid film but the last 10 minutes are terribly written and executed.

That and up until the last 10 minutes, it seems like the first 90 minutes of a 3 hour film (that has been cut in half). Very good film that could have been much better.

What do we think will win for Special Effects? I think Transformers deserves to win. There was never a time in that movie when I thought "that looks so fake" like I did several times during Spider-Man 3.

I think Transformers will get Effects and Sound Editing. I would also say Sound Mixing, but musicals also win that award. Which means Hairspray could take it this year. Chicago, Ray, and Dreamgirls have all won for Mixing since 2000.

The Visual Effects Oscar will go to Transformers, no question. Not even taking into consideration the actual work on the movie, which is near flawless, there's no "better" movie that will be nominated along with it that they'd be tempted to vote for because of perceived higher quality.
