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.

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.

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

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.)

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.

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.

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.

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.

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...
