Harry's Live Commentary For The 2008 Academy Awards - Enter At Your Own Risk

Hey folks, Harry here - It's 5pm Central - For the last several hours - Yoko and I have been readying our Oscar throwdown decadent liberal party... We've got silver trays of blow, ladies of the night covered in gold paint and 100% dolphin tuna salad. Actually - I keed. Right now I'm in my Armani shirt with my Godzilla button covers and Tux pants with my Godzilla shoes. I'm not sure what it is about Godzilla that says Oscars - but ya know - when you can customize the dress for the evening to be your own MAN IN SUIT - I say go for it, dare it, be it. Right now - we have around 15 bottles of Champagne Iced Down - and one bottle in a cryo-tank to scientifically regulate its temperature. It was a wedding present and we're letting its eerie blue glow glow. From the ever-present coverage of E! - it seems it is drip dripping upon the Oscar world. So will everyone be wearing the SINGING IN THE RAIN garb? Somehow... I think not. Any time now the first celebs will be arriving so I can begin fawning or bitching about them... more likely I'll be bitching about the E! coverage - and go from there. I'll be back... as soon as anything vaguely comment-able will appear... While nothing is going on - I'll go ahead and state my biases in this popularity contest. I'm rooting for Daniel Day Lewis, Casey Affleck, Ellen Page and Cate Blanchett in the Acting Categories. I'll be ecstatic if Persepolis wins - but will be happy for Brad Bird and the Pixar crew if Ratatouille wins. For Art Direction I'd like There WIll Be Blood or Sweeney Todd win. For Cinematography I'm pulling for Roger Deakins' brilliant work on The Assassination Of Jesse James By The Coward Robert Ford. For Costumes, I'll go for Across the Universe, but I feel that Sweeney will get it. For Direction I'm pulling for Paul Thomas Anderson, while feeling that the Coens will pick it up for No Country. For best Documentary - I love SICKO, but frankly I'm not very happy with the Academy's picks this year. For Film Editing - I'd have to go with No Country. On Foreign Language Film - I'm 100% behind Mongol. For Makeup - I will kill a puppy if Norbit wins. For best score, I can't believe I'm rooting for Marco Beltrami's 3:10 TO YUMA - but I know that Dario Marianelli will win for Atonement. For best song - I am pulling for the Happy Working Song. Best picture will go to No Country - though I'd love There Will Be Blood to win... I just can't be that in tune with Hollywood. I want the Russian animated Peter & The Wolf to win. For Live Action short - The Substitute. For Sound Editing - I'm rooting for Ratatouille and for Sound Mixing - I'll go to No Country. For visual effects - I can not deny giant fucking robots. For adapted screenplay I vote for There Will Be Blood. For Original - I vote for Juno. Amazing script there. The "Bardem" gag on E! - according to my Dad was written prior to the end of the strike. Juno's best friend looks amazing dressed up - and Anne Hathaway is a bit lost. The most lost though seems to be the E! hosts. Be back in a bit... Wow - Travolta has the worst hairdo ever.... Ruby Dee is a character. Saoirse Ronan is so cute... and her voice is a killer. James McAvoy is the spawn of satan - he eats children. Why is the ROCK at the Oscars? George looks like he owns everybody else and his girlfriend is awesome! Daniel Day Lewis has Pirate Earrings!!! Oh My God! That's awesome!!! Travolta's hair is like black ch ch chia. In fact - it looks like that flocked G. I. Joe hair. That's amazing. Steve Carrell should be talking to his shoe right now. My God - Ryan is talking to Patrick Dempsey... Amazingly significant red carpet interview. Amy Adams' dress doesn't look good. Laura Linney is looking great. Miley Cyrus has great chandelier rings. Tommy Lee Jones looks aggravated. ROCK is getting E! time - and he's presenting an award... which one... Best Actress? His role model was Clint Eastwood. James McAvoy eats children. Jessica Alba has purple boa all over her breasts. Seth Rogen has weird hair stuff going on. I'm kinda beginning to go numb. Why do I write this stuff. Oh god - Daniel Day Lewis is the most awesome genius freak of an actor ever. Ryan Secrest was verbally assaulted by the Gary Busey - Ryan is speaking with Jennier Garner and Laura Linney - and now Busey is hugging and kissing everyone - and Garner is nervous and afraid of the Busey - this is hilarious. Ryan is so scared of Gary. Fucking Awesome. Jonah Hill and Seth Rogan are some how infinitely less funny than the sexually assaultive joy that was Gary Busey. Ok - nothing will top the Busey - so now I'm on the WaWas special where Ellen Page is on singing her Juno song. Now she's interviewing Harrison Ford - American Graffitti - BEER. Star Wars films - ENGLAND. Blade Runner - RIDLEY. Witness - ONE OF THE BEST TIMES OF MY LIFE. The Fugitive - NEVER THOUGHT IT'D TURN OUT SO WELL. 4 Indy movies - STEVEN SPIELBERG... and George of course. "Easily the most anticipated movie of the 21st Century" - Barbara Walters about the 4th Indiana Jones movie. He says Indiana Jones is now 20 years older. Harrison wants to be remembered as a good collaborator. And the go out with one of those Disney singer people. Ok now for the official red carpet... Oh god - Regis... That's insane. Harrison walking by behind him. Now George Clooney is talking with Regis... George feels he was better in BATMAN & ROBIN than in MICHAEL CLAYTON. Marion Cotillard's alabaster mermaid dress is exquisite... and she's lovely beyond words. Travolta's hair in HD is... very evil to his hair piece. Now Linney is subjected to the Regis. Can't wait to see Bardem at the Oscars... Oh - he looks rugged, yet dapper. I hate Miley Cyrus - "Just when you thought Billy Ray Cyrus was gone forever" - Kentuckian - Gordon Jones... MICKEY ROONEY!!!! I have to say - watching Mickey Rooney on the red carpet - even for a flash - I'm just ecstatic. Ok - sorry - made a bathroom run - now it's time to begin the big show... I noticed that Javier Bardem is sitting next to Jack Nicholson... how genius is that seating? I mean - they're going to kill people together. And ya know... you could cast Javier Bardem as Nicholson's son in a film of significant violence. Oh this opening is kinda super cool... I can't even breakdown everything that's going on. He was delivered to the stage by pnuematic tubes... He is... Jon Stewart. Lol - Vanity Fair Oscar Party invite writers. Psychopathic killers - does Hollywood need a hug? Thank god for Teen Pregnancy.... I love Stewart. Hannibal Lector meets Dorothy Hammil's wedge cut. See where the Jews are in the audience... lol... Too Often The Academy Ignores Movies That Aren't Good. GENIUS!!! Oscar is now 80, which makes him the front runner for the Republican nomination. Usually when you see a black man or a woman president - an asteroid is about to hit the statue of liberty! - Great opening monologue! First presenter - Jennifer Garner - to present Best Costume Design. Achievement in costume design "Across the Universe" Albert Wolsky Great work. "Atonement" Jacqueline Durran No. "Elizabeth: The Golden Age" Alexandra Byrne Beautiful work. "La Vie en Rose" Marit Allen Nice. "Sweeney Todd The Demon Barber of Fleet Street" Colleen Atwood Gorgeous. The oscar goes to ELIZABETH THE GOLDEN AGE - Alexandra Byrne!!! Fantastic work in that movie. Nice short acceptance. George Clooney comes out - to present - 80 years of Oscars.... to the music of ET... weird... I actually really like the Jerry Lewis moment... OH FUCK - BENINGNI... I HATE THAT GUY He Fucked Ian McKellen out of his Oscar. "and the other life I might have had" - god I love that Chaplin moment. Oh those are camels - iPhone movie downloads - redic Steve Carrell and Ann Hathaway - to present - Animated Movies - I think he just said SHIT... I am pretty sure. PERSEPOLIS - please win RATATOUILLE - You can win. SURF'S UP - DO NOT WIN. Oscar goes to RATATOUILLE - Brad Bird! The second academy award for THE MAN! Should have won for IRON GIANT. Great acceptance speech - His Guidance Counseler trying to talk him out of movie making. Hilarious. Katherine Hiegl - Damn she's fucking hot tonight... as opposed to usual. Presenting Best MAKE UP... LA VIE EN ROSE - lovely work. WIN! NORBIT - please not more fat movie make up. POTC:AWE - No. Winner is LA VIE EN ROSE!!! - Didier - Thank you, very much... but the way he said it... AWESOME. Great voice. Amy Adams - HAPPY WORKING SONG - I love this song - and this is weird - no production number - just Amy on the stage - She's so cute... I love this song and really hope and pray this wins. Not a real fan of these little Oscar moments from the past. Missed Jon's first joke cuz of Massawyrm talking rudely... The ROCK is presenting the award for BEST VISUAL EFFECTS - apparently he was scared by face melting... THE GOLDEN COMPASS - nice POTC: AWE - nice TRANSFORMERS - incredible - better win. Oscar goes to THE GOLDEN COMPASS - no way! Fuckin' hell - TRANSFORMERS - --- Cate Blanchett - Best ART DIRECTION... AMERICAN GANGSTER - not really. ATONEMENT - very nice work. THE GOLDEN COMPASS - pretty. SWEENEY TODD - gorgeous. THERE WILL BE BLOOD - genius - Oscar goes to SWEENEY TODD! I love people with Italian Accents - they sound so sincere when being greatful. --- Supporting actor montage... Joel Grey is awesome... ROCK ON... Jennifer Hudson presents best Supporting Actor noms... Casey Affleck - AOJJBTCRF... Please fucking win. Javier Bardem - NCFOM - he'll win - and I can't argue, accept I fucking love Casey's performance. Phillip Seymour Hoffman - CWW - so fucking good. Great performance. Hal Holbrook - INTO THE WILD - really good role. Tom Wilkinson - absolutely great. this is the single hardest category. And the winner is... JAVIER BARDEM - Oh I love that role. I wanted Casey to win to just bring more attention to that fucking great movie. Oh well. AT THIS POINT I ACCIDENTLY DELETED SEVERAL PARAGRAPHS PETER AND THE WOLF won SHORT ANIMATED FILM. LES MOZART DES PICKPOCKETS won SHORT FILM --- DAMN MY STUBBY INTOXICATED FINGERS... Alan Arkin presents for Best Supporting Actress... Cate Blanchett - I'M NOT THERE... brilliant. RUBY DEE - American Gangster - not as great at Cate Saorise Ronan - Atonement - good work Amy Ryan - Gone Baby Gone - great work - but boy did I hate the character. Tilda Swinton - Michael Clayton - I didn't like her much in that film. And the oscar goes to... TILDA SWINTON - wow - I love her in a ton of her work - but I'm just not in love with this role. Best acceptance speech of the night. Do you really think she'll give the oscar to her agent? And Jack is here… Josh Brolin and James McAvoy – come out to present – BEST ADAPTED SCREENPLAY… ATONEMENT AWAY FROM HER DIVING BELL & THE BUTTERFLY NO COUNTRY FOR OLD MEN THERE WILL BE BLOOD… And the winner is The Coen Brothers – NO COUNTRY FOR OLD MEN… - first heads up on TWBB – this looks like their night, I’m thinking… HOMER and CORMAC MCCARTHY… ‘ow they count ballots – was AMAZING. Miley Cyrus – ugh…. THAT’S HOW YOU KNOW song from ENCHANTED… That number was less cool than the first one, mainly because it isn’t being sung by Amy Adams – who is fantastic singing the numbers. Shame she didn’t do that one. You might be wondering why I disappeared there for a while – well the site had a malfunction… my clumsy fingers deleted about 300 words… and well – these are the problems of blogging live without a net. And the sheer numbers of hits on this article have been gigantic – and tech issues are a continual issue with it. Dame Judi Dench and Halle Berry follow up a silly Baby gag. Instead it’s Seth Rogan and Jonah Hill. – SOUND EDITING… BOURNE ULTIMATUM RATATOUILLE THERE WILL BE BLOOD TRANSFORMERS And the winner is – THE BOURNE ULTIMATUM… Karen Baker Landers and Per Hallburg – they seem to be - funny sound editor knew when the music would come in. Jonah and Seth do SOUND MIXING… THE BOURNE ULTIMATUM NO COUNTRY FOR OLD MEN RATATOUILLE 3:10 TO YUMA TRANSFORMERS And the Oscar goes to:…. THE BOURNE ULTIMATUM… “Would it be ok to kiss Halle Berry now?” Fucking hilarious… Forrest Whittacker presents Best Actress… Cate Blanchett – ELIZABETH THE GOLDEN AGE - wonderful Julie Christie – AWAY FROM HER – lovely work Marion Cotillard – LE VIE EN ROSE – genius… Laura Linney – THE SAVAGES – great work. Ellen Page – JUNO – please please please win… And the Oscar for Best Actress goes to… MARION COTTILARD – “It is true there are angels in this city!” Awesome! This was a great category… Amazing… The ONCE musical number – missed the start of… but damn this is a real great song… it’s only because I’m retardedly in love with HAPPY WORKING SONG… JACK NICHOLSON is coming out… because he’s a badass… and he has Devil ears – fucking look at those Devil Ears… - he’s introducing 80 years of Best Pictures… IT HAPPENED ONE NIGHT!!! I have that GREAT ZIEGFELD one sheet… Gene Kelly… ON THE WATERFRONT… MADNESS… THE APARTMENT… I want some More. PATTON… FRENCH… GODFATHer. THE STING, Part 2… Cuckoo… Rocky, Annie Hall beat Star Wars…. – Fuck Chariots of fire…. AMADEUS!!! It’s weird to see the modern films in context to the older ones… they feel less outstanding… - Like CRASH and MILLION DOLLAR BABY – really? Not so much… Rene Zellweger… - her dress kinda looks like a platinum Wonder Woman costume…. FILM EDITING… THE BOURNE ULTIMATUM THE DIVING BELL AND THE BUTTERFLY INTO THE WILD NO COUNTRY FOR OLD MEN THERE WILL BE BLOOD And the winner is THE BOURNE ULTIMATUM Now Nicole Kidman comes out – and she’s looking gorgeous as usual… and damn – are those diamonds? That’s CRAZY… Ah Production design… Robert Boyle’s work… He’s done so many brilliant films – so much of Hitchcock’s work… Amazing. Penelope Cruz with a chestful of crows… - Best Foreign Film BEAUFORT THE COUNTERFEITERS KATYN MONGOL 12 Come on MONGOL…. And the winner is… THE COUNTERFEITERS – And now Patrick Dempsey comes out to announce the third song… Here we go with SO CLOSE… One attendee at the party is enjoying the cloth sphincters in the background. And now we have JOHN TRAVOLTA who comes dancing out of the dancers… to groans in my room BEST SONG Once – Falling Slowly ENCHANTED – HAPPY WORKING SONG August Rush – Raise it up ENCHANTED – So Close ENCHANTED – That’s How You know And the oscar goes to… ONCE wins! And that song so deserves it as the entire film is about making that song!… Best acceptance moment… Glen Hansard was the face of amazement and that cocksucker Bill Conti not letting Marketa Irglova speak… Cock Sucker!!! Jon Stewart is not a CockSucker – YES! FUCKING A!!! I love Jon Stewart. Brilliant Cameron Diaz – does BEST CINEMATOGRAPHY – and had a dickens of the time saying Cinematography… Roger Deakins – Jesse – please… Seamus McGarvey Janusz Kaminski Roger Deakins – Robert Elswit… -- The oscar goes to THERE WILL BE BLOOD. That and ASSASSINATION were genius… There was a lot of brilliant work in this category. Hillary Swank to do the Death Montage… Here we go, I’m about to cry… Roscoe Browne, Barry Nelson, Kitty Hart, Betty Hutton, Calvin Lockhart, Janee wyman, Melville Shavelson, Curtis Harrington, Jack Valenti, Michael Kidd, Antonioni, Delbert Mann, Monty Westmore, Peter Handford, Bud Ekins, Bernard Gordon, Dabs Greer,, Harold , Laraine Day, Cassell, Lois Maxwell, Laszlo Kovacs, Robert Clark, George , Jonny Grant, Frank Rosenfelt, Martin, Donfeld, Sembene , Freddy Fields, Robert Lantz, Ray Kur, Miyoshi, Suzanne Plesshette, Deborah kerr, Peter, Peter Zinner, Freddi Francis, Ingmar Bergman, Ray Evans, William Tuttle, Heath Ledger -- however they left out Brad Renfro… but I didn’t. Amy Adams comes out to do Best Score… Atonement – Dario Kite Runner – Michael Clayton – Ratatouille 3:10 TO YUMA The Oscar goes to Dario Marianelli for ATONEMENT – which was an amazing score – but personally – I love 3:10 TO YUMA. The next presenter is Tom Hanks – And some soldiers from Iraq – present for Documentary Short Subjects – Freeheld La Corona Salim Baba Sari’s Mother And the winner goes to FREEHELD – which I haven’t seen. But is apparently coming up on Cinemax later this year. Next is Hanks presenting Documentary Features… NO END IN SIGHT OPERATION HOMECOMING SICKO TAXI TO THE DARKSIDE WARDANCE This category has a lot of missing quality docs – but the winner is TAXI TO THE DARKSIDE – personally my pick for best doc would be between TERROR’S ADVOCATE and THE KING OF KONG… but Documentary. Now Harrison Ford – auto dealership owner… to do Best Original Screenplay – JUNO LARS AND THE REAL GIRL MICHAEL CLAYTON RATATOUILLE THE SAVAGES And the oscar goes to… Diablo Cody – JUNO… wow – I liked that a lot. I wish Ellen would’ve won too. But if JUNO had to win just one award – this was the Award and the person to win. The Best Actor montage is all sorts of cool… Helen Mirren – “cajones” spoken by Helen Mirren is genius… George Clooney Daniel Day Lewis – best performance I feel I’ve ever seen… Johnny Depp – great role Tommy Lee Jones – very nice performance – understated and done in nano-moments. Viggo Mortensen – can’t believe he got the nom – but I’m so happy its here. And the oscar goes to DANIEL DAY LEWIS – fucking awesome – “Whacking me with the handsomest bludgeon in town” The rightest award ever bestowed. Jack Lemmon and Walter Matthau doing the Best Director intro….to the montage… Martin Scorsese - presents Best Director… Julian Schnabel Jason Reitman Tony Gilroy Coen Brothers Paul Thomas Anderson… And the oscar goes to THE COEN BROTHERS!!! Personally – this year has been the biggest split – cuz we have two truly brilliant films… and the COENS have been the greatest and most consistently brilliant directors in history… Denzel Washington looking EVIL presents best picture ATONEMENT JUNO MICHAEL CLAYTON NO COUNTRY FOR OLD MEN THERE WILL BE BLOOD And the oscar goes to NO COUNTRY FOR OLD MEN Scott Rudin is accepting – This is absolutely a brilliant film and the choice between this and THERE WILL BE BLOOD is just a flip of the coin. That said – this was the COEN’s year – and why the hell not!

    by Charlie Murphy

    i really can't be bothered to watch a eighty-six hour fuckin ceremony that could be wrapped up in 90 minutes. that said, i do enjoy finding out the results the next day. there were lots of great movies this year, and i've seen many of the nominees... I doubt Juno will win best picture, but not because of its quality (great fucking movie), but because it's got some pretty stiff competition. ellen page does deserve some love though... recently caught up with gone baby gone and michael clayton on dvd, enjoyed them very much. pretty, pretty good. i was surprised amy ryan was nominated; shes fantastic but was literally only in that movie for like seventeen minutes.

    wins more than Best Actor. It's just as good, if not better than No Country, and I'd love to se it get writing, directing, or Best Picture. Yeah, Juno bettr not win Best Picture, and even Best Screenplay will piss me off. Ellen Page winning would be fine, because she's a good actress, but the character Juno is just terrible, and not complex at all. She did a btter job in Hard Candy.

    I'm rooting for No Country for Best Film

    by MontyPigeon

    To me it's head and shoulders above There Will Be Blood. Even if people have a problem with that ending, they have to admire how good that film was up until that moment.<p>There will be blood was an excellently made film with a sure fire Oscar winner in the leading role but the story for me was quite boring. I was waiting for it to erupt but instead it made a little squirt. Would prefer it to win if No Country doesn't though.

    Jon Stewart

    by andrew1911uk

    I'm only watching this for the Mighty Jew...I wonder how he's going to play it this time around? With only minimum time for the writers to get their act together, I reckon it's going to be more off the cuff than ever before...but I'm not sure how well it'll go down with the industry types who've just screwed the writers (again) if he goes over the top on the writers side - which I'm almost certain he will. I reckon he'll struggle this time - but I really hope he pulls it off. JS is the best thing to happen to US cable in ages...as a Brit, anything that gets the US rank and file (not you fine people - I love youse guys) thinking and talking about world and local politics is a good thing. Flame on, boys.

    There Will Be Blood has a HUGE ending...

    by DanielKurland

    It's just internal. You see Daniel Plainview got through so fucking much and just watching his performance for three hours makes me think I know how that character would litrally act in every situation. The ending itself is fantastic for watching two characters that have ended up there that aen't even that different (Notice how his cross he wears grows bigger throughout the film). The symbolism of the room itself is also fantastic and the last line sums everything up perfectly. TWBB has a huge explosion at the end, and the best part is that you can see the entire thing being lead up throughout the whole film. You're welcome to prefer NCFOM obviously, but don't saw TWBB has no eruption.

  • Feb. 24, 2008, 5:55 p.m. CST

    I agree with Mori...

    by ZoeFan

    He was on AOTS and basicly said No Country for Old Men would win for Best Picture. But a year, 2 years, 5 years from now people will still remember There Will Be Blood. That There Will Be Blood is the best film to come out this year, but No Country is just on a roll and it's the Coen's year.

    Presenters talking to Carell, comparing his Little Miss Sunshine from last year to Juno this year, and they describe it as "A nice little Canadian movie..." The lead, and the direction may be Canadian, but that is by no means a Canadian movie.

    PT Anderson has been nominatd before...

    For Screenplay, with Magnolia. And Boogie Nights at least got nominated for Burt Reynolds. Honestly, Boogie Night has held up incredibly wells and is so gorgeous. It's one my all time favorite films.

    Also should add that PT Anderson...

    by DanielKurland

    was fucking pissed when he didn't win for Screenplay. He's a sore loser, and I guess it's justifiable when you make great movies in the same year as another great movie, and you feel kind of cheated. He's going to be pissed I'm sure if he loses out on the major TWBB awards. I'm not saying he's a bad guy, he just really wants to win, which I think is fair.

    Daniel Day-Lewis in There Will Be Blood

    by Mattyboy122

    = John Huston impersonation. Should've won for 'Gangs,' but they'll give it to him this year. There Will Be Blood is massively overrated and DOES fall apart at the end (although it wasn't held together too well up until then). That is all.

    DanielKurland regarding TWBB

    by MontyPigeon

    It's a matter of personal taste. The ending didn't mach up what was brewing for me. The film is very well made and oozed the word Epic, some of the shots were out of this world. I did get the ending and how Plainview and Eli were not much different. Both conning the townsfolk with seperate different reasons. NCFOM just blew me away especially every time Bardem was on screen. The tension for me during the film was on par with anything I've even seen. Then as kwisatzhaderach mentioned, comes that final part and the audience become seperated into the love it or hate it groups.<p>If it goes to Atonement or Juno then it's a mockery.

    by Pennsy

    At considerable risk, the Academy got it right in 1997. At least when it came to everything but best actress. Winslet should have won, but the voters were nationalistic that year and didn't want the award to go to a Brit, as Helen Hunt was the only U.S. nominee of the 5.

    Is Tailhook here? Remember your post below?

    by SkinJob69

    Hoping to rub this in your face...in a good natured, kidding sort of way of course. Go Joel and Ethan!!<p> Best Picture?!?! by tailhook Nov 23rd, 2007 11:19:03 PM Wow.. lay it on reaaaaaaal thick. Why not go whole hog and claim it should be on the top 10 AFI 100 movies list? Sheesh. The only shot at an academy award this movie has is for Javiar Bardem for best supporting. As per it 'matching' the ending of the (bestselling)book.. books are books, movies are movies. Something which may work in the written medium simply doesn't translate well at all in the visual. This is one of those times and any competant director would have known that and the Coens damn well should have. Lets do The Coen Idiocy with other movies shall we? Reservoir Dogs.. cut the ending and a couple beat cops show up and discover three guys dead.. add 5 minutes of reminisicing about how bad their life is and then cut to black. Unforgiven... no bar scene.. simply show the perspective of a townsfolk who looks over.. hears a shotgun blast, and sees Clint bailing out of the bar at the end screaming to give Ned a proper burial. We don't need to see none of that bar stuff... we can figure out what happened. Kill Bill... cut The House of the Blue Leaves scene.. have the last of the eighty-eight who had accidentally been in the bathroom at the time come out and discover the carnage. We don't need to show that... we can interpolate and figure out Bad Shit Happened. Oh.. and the guy took off his mask so can't you UNDERSTAND THE SCENE just by looking at his shocked face? OMG IS IT NOT ARTSY-FARTSY ENOUGH NOW? Liberal Pot Head Media Arts professors will assign this shit for unexpecting students to watch and 'analyze' every year! Doesn't that make it the bestest movie ever? ALL SETUP. NO CLIMAX. BLUE BALLS IS THE NEW ART. THE PURPLER THE BETTER. At least I have solace in the fact that it will only be about a month until There Will Be Blood comes out.

    Bardem was good, but Affleck carried a film

    by Mullah Omar

    And to be honest, he was mis-nominated - he was the lead of JESSE JAMES and should have been in the Best Actor category . . . where he would be obliterated by DDL. <br> <br> I think Bardem got the short end of he stick with Chigurh, really - in the book, he gets a lot more to do/say and is a better, well-rounded character. In the film, he's just Terminator 2007. Which apparently worked for many people in the audience.

    Assassination of Jesse James: great?

    by Merriman Lyon

    Have to disagree. The best thing about it is the cinematography - which is inspired. But the movie is seriously let down by the presence of Brad Pitt in one of the leading roles. He's just got too much baggage as a movie star. Takes you right out of the film. The other problem is that Robert Forde - although well acted by Casey Affleck - is an extremely dull and uninteresting character. He is just a nerdy fanboy who never emerges from his mother's basement.

    About Cuba's Oscar win

    by jgmamma0

    What I was trying to put down in my title of my talkback was Cuba Gooding Jr.'s Oscar was the 2nd worst Oscar winner (in any category) next to Roberto Benigni's Best Actor Oscar. And, this is from someone who loves "Life is Beautiful" and thought it deserved the Best Picture nod & Best Foreign Film Oscar. But when you look at the other Best Actor nominees that year with Norton ("American History X"), Ian McKellen ("Gods and Monsters"), Tom Hanks ("Saving Private Ryan"), and really the in my opinion the best performance/one of the psychologically scariest lead performances with Nick Nolte ("Affliction").

Now, if Brooke Busey-Hunt (I do not give her power and call her by her made-up stripper/showbiz name) does not win for Original Screenplay for Juno and Tony Gilroy for "Michael Clayton", I will be happy.

    by SkinJob69

    Not worthy of their consideration, it seems. 2001- robbed. SW- robbed (although I love Annie Hall). The best sci-fi filmmakers can hope for is technical awards. I remember when Tron came out, they wouldn't even put it in the running for any SFX awards because the computer effects were "cheating".

    I am so glad Page didn't win and Cotillard did.

    by AnnoyYou

    Cotillard's Edith Piaf was pure genius, while Page was doing (in a quite mediocre manner) the same sullen ironic teen thing done much better in the past by Thora Birch and Sarah Polley. I'd like to see *her* tackle something like Piaf - it would be a joke. And how glad am I that not one of the acting Oscars has gone to an American so far? Sweet! American actors mostly suck.
