Oscar nominations

not sure if anyone likes it when i post award nominees. you proabably care more with the oscars then the golden globes and such. Anyway yeah this will be long so yeah.
I wanna bring up something as well. This is what I think the oscars will be like as of this date. The nite of the oscars i could say different stuff. Campaign and such can seriously change things. In 1998 everyone thought saving private ryan would win best picture when the nominations came out then Shakespeare in love won so. It happens. I maybe just do who i think will win the friday before or something.
Obviously also I like Pixar alot well there most nominated film is now Ratatouille with a wopping 5 nominations. to put that in perspective Juno got 4. pretty coo.

Also life after people was coo I checked it out on the history channel last nite. I think theres a book based on the same thing but i'm not sure the title. I'll figure it out morrow.

Michael Clayton
No Country for Old Men
There Will Be Blood

I think for once in a really long time the best film of the year may actually win and that would be no country. there will be blood is to arty and everyone else has no chance.

George Clooney "Michael Clayton"
Daniel Day-Lewis "There Will Be Blood"
Johnny Depp "Sweeney Todd the Demon Barber of Fleet Street"
Tommy Lee Jones "In the Valley of Elah"
Viggo Mortensen "Eastern Promises."

This has been Daniel Day-Lewis's since december. I don't see much promise in anyone else here. But big shocks for most of the nominations Tommy Lee Jones is nominated for a movie that came and went. Johnny Depp was a suprise cause he wasn't that great.

Cate Blanchett "Elizabeth: The Golden Age"
Julie Christie "Away From Her"
Marion Cotillard "La Vie en Rose"
Laura Linney "The Savages"
Ellen Page "Juno."

This is really between Marion Cotillard and Julie Christie. And can go either way with both having won a ton of stuff. I guess Julie Christie but Marion Cotillard has been the favorite for a while and her film i believe is easier to find.

Supporting Actor:
Casey Affleck "The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford";
Javier Bardem "No Country for Old Men";
Hal Holbrook "Into the Wild";
Philip Seymour Hoffman "Charlie Wilson's War";
Tom Wilkinson "Michael Clayton"

Javier Bardem is gonna win this. Casey Affleck was the old favorite but he's not gonna win. Hal Holbrook got a nomination which is coo maybe he can get alot of work or something. I don't see anyone else coming in on this.

Supporting Actress:
Cate Blanchett "I'm Not There"
Ruby Dee "American Gangster"
Saoirse Ronan "Atonement"
Amy Ryan "Gone Baby Gone"
Tilda Swinton "Michael Clayton."

Cate Blanchett has had this for a while. Which seriously would give her 2 supporting Oscars. Amy Ryan could be the only upset. But With the Weinsteins behind her and with this the only thing the weinsteins have it's gonna happen. Ruby Dee's nomination seriously came out of nowhere. I mean good for her. Also this has the greatest age range of any categorey with Saoirse Ronan being a teenager and Ruby Dee being like 83.

Julian Schnabel "The Diving Bell and the Butterfly";
Jason Reitman "Juno";
Tony Gilroy "Michael Clayton";
Joel Coen and Ethan Coen "No Country for Old Men";
Paul Thomas Anderson "There Will Be Blood."

Obviously everyone is saying The Coen brothers will win. I agree but don't forge that the coen brothers have gotten fucked by the academy before. At the same time the only person people think has a chance is Julian Schnabel and he's foreign so good luck with that.

Foreign Film:
"Beaufort," Israel;
"The Counterfeiters," Austria;
"Katyn," Poland;
"Mongol," Kazakhstan;
"12," Russia.

I'm sure they're all good but i havn't seen any and i have no clue which way it could go

Adapted Screenplay:
Christopher Hampton "Atonement"
Sarah Polley "Away from Her"
Ronald Harwood "The Diving Bell and the Butterfly"
Joel Coen & Ethan Coen "No Country for Old Men"
Paul Thomas Anderson "There Will Be Blood."

This one is a lock for the Coens. Unless people go we're giving them alot of stuff and that Blood movie was coo. So I think that could happen but most likely it won't and they'll win.

Original Screenplay:
Diablo Cody "Juno"
Nancy Oliver "Lars and the Real Girl"
Tony Gilroy "Michael Clayton"
Brad Bird, Jan Pinkava and Jim Capobianco "Ratatouille"
Tamara Jenkins "The Savages."

Ok so this is the only categorey where I think Juno has a chance. In fact I think it will win. Also Michael Clayton maybe but seriously there has been so much press about the writer of juno that it's so plausable. Also great job for Ratatouille thats the second Brad Bird movie to get a best original screenplay nomination.

Animated Feature Film:
"Surf's Up."

This list could have been alot worse. Like alot worse. Thank god Bee Movie didn't make it. Ratatouille has pretty much got it. Persepolis has a chance but unless it gets real big quick i doubt it.

Visual Effects:
"The Golden Compass,"
"Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End,"

Transformers. I mean come on

Art Direction:
"American Gangster,"
"The Golden Compass,"
"Sweeney Todd the Demon Barber of Fleet Street,"
"There Will Be Blood"

Attonement may have this but Sweeney Todd has a good chance as well. either or.

"The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford,"
"The Diving Bell and the Butterfly,"
"No Country for Old Men,"
"There Will Be Blood."

Unforently I'm getting these from yahoo news which doesn't seem to want to put peoples names for any of the techincal categorey's. But Rodger Dekins is nominated twice for No Country and Jesse James. I think he has a chance to win for no country but There will be blood may take this or even attonement but i doubt it.

Sound Mixing:
"The Bourne Ultimatum,"
"No Country for Old Men,"
"3:10 to Yuma,"

I don't know were There will be blood is that was a really well mixed film and deserves to win but oh well. This is really between No Country and Ratatouille as a previous Brad Bird film won for editing and there all pretty great guys with previous wins. But I think No Country may take it.

Sound Editing:
"The Bourne Ultimatum,"
"No Country for Old Men,"
"There Will Be Blood,"

I think There will be blood may take this as it was so well edited sound wise as well. Ratatouille could take this as this is the category that most don't care about and you can get away with it but I think it's gonna be there will be blood.

Original Score:
"Atonement," Dario Marianelli
"The Kite Runner," Alberto Iglesias
"Michael Clayton," James Newton Howard
"Ratatouille," Michael Giacchino
"3:10 to Yuma," Marco Beltrami

Atonement will most likely win this but i want Ratatouille to get it. that composer is really good I'm glad he got a nomination.

Documentary Feature:
"No End in Sight,"
"Operation Homecoming: Writing the Wartime Experience,"
"Taxi to the Dark Side,"

I really don't know who will win logic should say Sicko but i feel like everyone has forgotten about that. Big shock the Helevitca documentary and king of kong did not make it. oh well

I don't care enough about best song cause it's 3 encahcted songs. I think Once will win that and best costume will be Sweeney todd.

that's it.
