Best Film: Atonement. (It's gotten a lot of love from critics.)
Best Director: Paul Thomas Anderson...There Will Be Blood
Best Actor: Daniel Day-Lewis...There Will Be Blood
Best Actress: Julie Christie...Away From Her
Best Supporting Actor: Hal Holbrook...Into The Wild
Best Supporting Actress: Cate Blanchett...I'm Not There
Best Original Screenplay: The Savages...Tamara Jenkins
Best Adapted Screenplay: Atonement...Christopher Hampton (Though The Diving Bell and the Butterfly may take the nod. It's definitely down to these two.)
Best Documentary Feature: Sicko...Michael Moore.
Best Animated Feature Film: Ratatouille (The Academy may get daring and choose Perespolis, but I'm pretty sure it will be Ratatouille.)

Ratatouille for best animated film and Transformers for best visual effects and best sound mixing/editing are the only guarentees.

Ranman
14-02-2008, 03:31 PM
Sorry If I was wrong about the year like sir Ice
has implied, these movies were all out in 2007
and I thought the Oscars reflected that.
Secondly Frodo you pin dick, I chose 10 awards
and you have to pick best
sound mixing/editing?
Now my choices

Best Picture; Atonement, This is a Keira site

Best Director; Joel Coen and Ethan Coen
'No Country for Old Men' this and
Micheal Clayton were the only two I saw,
I choose Joel Coen and Ethan Coen
No Country for Old Men was better

Best Actor; Johnny Depp, Finally rewarded for Jack Sparrow

Best Actress; Ellen Page, rewarded for shadow kat

Best Supporting Actor; Probably the toughest
choice, Javier Bardem or Tom Wilkinson,
One made me scared and the other
made me laugh I'll go with Javier Bardem
'No Country for Old Men' a role of a lifetime

Best Supporting Actress; Cate Blanchett, for not winning best actress

Best Original Screenplay; 'Juno' Diablo Cody

Best Adapted Screenplay; 'Atonement' Christopher Hampton

Best Documentary Feature; Sicko

Best Animated Feature Film; Ratatouille

I almost put Bardem for supporting actor, but I have a gnawing suspicion that Holbrook and Christie will get the nod because they probably won't be around for many more. Sympathy vote.

Ranman
14-02-2008, 03:39 PM
She already won, and he hasn't been in anything else that good

Yes, because I did not see all the nominated movies to make valid arguments. Deal with it.

I want Marion to win Best Actress so bad. i've been a fan of hers for 5 years, now. Even if she doesn't win, i'm still very proud of her.



She won that BAFTA. baby. yez-ur.<3




:edit:


isn't this Oscars for 2008? lol

Best Film: No Country for Old Men
Best Director: Coen Brothers "No Country for Old Men"
Best Actor: Daniel Day-Lewis "There Will Be Blood"
Best Actress: Julie Christie "Away From Her"
Best Supporting Actor: Javier Bardem "No Country for Old Men"
Best Supporting Actress: Cate Blanchett "I'm not There"
Best Original Screenplay: Juno
Best Adapted Screenplay: No Country for Old Men
Best Documentary Feature: Sicko
Best Animated Feature: Persepolis

A few things. These are my actual predictions, but they're also basically who I want to see win. I had no trouble picking for any one except Best Actress. I went with Julie Christie because her name is the opening line of my favorite Yo La Tengo song. And Brad, I'm not exactly sure what you mean by "get daring and pick Persepolis." I've seen both Persepolis and Ratatoullie and Persopolis is so faaaar superior. If you mean because it's in French, then maybe I can see the Academy just picking Ratatouille to keep the masses happy here. But holy shit, I'm surprised Persepolis wasn't up for more awards (adapted screenplay, fucking badassest film of the year, etc.)

hasselbrad
18-02-2008, 02:03 PM
Jakerdoodle...that's what I meant.
And as for Holbrook's character, isn't he gay? If so, that may sew it up for him.

Jacoby
21-02-2008, 11:02 PM
Yeah, Brad, you might be right about Holbrook. We just got Into the Wild at work, and I looked at the back of the cover, and he certainly is old. I figure they'll squeeze him the oscar because of his dinosaurness. I'm going to watch the film after I workout tonight, and I'm looking forward to it.

I'll keep my original guesses as is, though, just to keep it interesting.

And we did a full ballot at work, and the winner gets a free copy of the Best Picture when it arrives on DVD. Which I think is a great idea. Plus, I really hope I win AND No Country wins best picture. That'd be sweet.

Ranman
21-02-2008, 11:05 PM
I'd like to thank Jake and Brad for being the only 2 people to post their picks, the rest of you are swine

Ranman

That wanst for you or liam, the rest are slime

Jacoby
21-02-2008, 11:26 PM
Yeah, more people should make some pics. Even if they've seen very few of the movies, or none at all.

It'll be more interesting on Sunday.

Jacoby
22-02-2008, 05:01 AM
Well, I just watched Into the Wild and I think Holbrook will win not because he's old, but because he deserves it.

and the film as a whole was pretty incredible. I'm surprised it wasn't up for more.

Kelsey
24-02-2008, 10:49 PM
Remember when we all watched it at the same time...best Oscars ever. Okay, here are my picks:

Best Film
Atonement

I loved Atonement and Juno equally, and I would love to see either win. I hated Michael Clayton.

Best Director
Jason Reitman
'Juno'
This guy took what could have been a blah movie and made it special and memorable.

Best Actor
Daniel Day-Lewis
'There Will Be Blood'
No surprise here. This would be a deserving win.


Best Actress
Ellen Page
'Juno'
I don't have a prediction in this category - I'm just rooting for Ellen Page, who holds her own unbelievably well in this catagory. I really do think it's a toss-up between Marion Cotillard and Julie Christie. But Oscar has been known to shock, and if they decide to shock tonight, it could be in this category.

Best Supporting Actor
Philip Seymour Hoffman
'Charlie Wilson's War'
I *loved* this movie because of Philip Seymour Hoffman. But if they choose to pass him up, I'm sure it will be Bardem's name we hear.

Best Supporting Actress
Cate Blanchett
'I'm Not There'
Again, I would love to see Ronan win, but I'm not naive enough to think that they would honor two babies in the same year: Page and Ronan. Therefore, Oscar loves Cate Blanchett (and why not - she's amazing) so the facts that she's an amazing actress, they nominated her twice, and that this is Heath Ledger's most recent film all can add up to Oscar win, I think.

Best Original Screenplay
'Juno'
Diablo Cody
This is a perfect example of the American Dream and the Hollywood Dream: stripper turned Oscar winner. This really was a great script; a blah idea, made awesome.

Best Adapted Screenplay
'Atonement'
Christopher Hampton
This is my all-time favorite book and I admit I was a little disappointed when I heard they were making a movie just because it is simply not a book that you can easily imagine as a film. And they did an incredible job, obviously.


Best Documentary Feature
Dunno...didn't see any of these. I just hope it's not Michael Moore.

Best Animated Feature Film
Ratatouille

I liked Surf's Up best, but I think it'll be Ratatouille (which I also liked)

Also, I love Ryan Seacrest...

Mandy
24-02-2008, 11:41 PM
Haha yeah, I remember talking to you on AIM the entire awards ceremony a couple years ago.

I'll be watching it for the Depp.

Kelsey

Fuck Ratatouille in it's stupid rat butt. I probably lost the ballot at work because of the animated, but we'll see...

I won't actually get to see, though, because I was scheduled to work tonight, I'm on my break right now. DAMMIT.

Transformers got robbed. Seriously, the film was as groundbreaking, visually, as Jurassic Park and T2.

Kelsey

I'm soooooo mad. How could Atonement not win????? I must have seen a different No Country than Oscar. Boo on that.

25-02-2008, 03:58 AM
I haven't even heard of La Vie en Rose but hooray for that Marion Cotillard. I thought the Oscars were predictable, minus that Best Actress win. Congrats to all who won, especially to Atonement for Original Score.

Jake you cretin you edited your picks, we kept track of it in the shout box during the oscars, You get no respect from me.

Jacoby

Edited my post? Whatever, duuude.

It's bad that out of the ten major awards I guessed 6 right, but at work we took a ballot on every category and I only got 7 right. So in the twenty or whatever extra categories I got one more right.

Kelsey
25-02-2008, 06:31 PM
I only got two right....I'm losing it...

'twas much fun thought watching the Oscars with Ranman and Michael and "dig". It made this very boring Oscars bearable.

I missed a good chunk of this show last night towards the middle -- about an hour -- and then caught the last two awards: Best Director and Best Picture. Overall it was very exciting to watch. I intend to see No Country For Old Men, There Will Be Blood, and La Vie En Rose (it's Edith Piaf, man!) as soon as they are released on DVD.

That 80 Years of Oscar clip they had was truly moving, in my opinion. Just watching all those brief moments with some of those incredible people -- John Wayne for one -- made me sad.
