  • At this point, im about 90% sure that the Best Picture nominees for the Oscars will be

    -The Curious Case of Benjamin Button
    -Slumdog Millionaire
    -The Dark Knight
    -Milk
    -Frost/Nixon

    This is just based off of precursor awards and how they normally effect and/or shadow what ends up happening with the Academy.

    I dont fully agree with these, but thats what my whole Award shindig is for I suppose.

      Interesting - I didn't think The Dark Knight would get the nod. No way it wins, though.

        If by no way you mean it definitely wins then I'd have to agree.

          I think that with the buzz is has produced, The Wrestler will get in over either TDK or Frost/Nixon, neither of which deserve to be in there over The Wrestler anyways. I think that the Academy will make sure The Wrestler gets in...its just one of those movies they usually love.

            Movies like The Dark Knight won't come close to winning Best Picture.

              There is literally no way in hell I can see TDK winning best picture...to be perfectly honest, Ill be surprised if its even nominated, especially with the late rush of fantastic movies in december/january

              • I don't think it should be nominated.. there are definitely 5 movies more deserving. Give Heath his love, but the movie shouldn't be in the conversation for best picture.

                  • So I watched Curious Case and I thought it was good but it was about 9 hours too long.

                      I think The Wrestler deserves a nod, but its getting no love in the precursors for Best Picture. Rourke, Tomei, and Aronofski are getting their proper due, but for some reason as a movie, its not getting a lot of love. Honestly, Id expect The Reader and Doubt to both be ahead of The Wrestler on the Academies short list at this point.

                      I think Frost/Nixon is a lock, and has been a lock for a while. I doubt it wins, but I think its an absolute lock for a nod. TDK got the oh so coveted PGA Nod, and usually the Producers Guild nods mirror the Academies. Plus its a chance for the Academy to get back on the Publics good side :D

                        It's probably hard for the academy to really get behind a movie based on pro wrestling.

                            Lord of the Rings and The Dark Knight arent academy type films either.

                            But its not the academy, its all the precursors that are leaving it out atm.

                            Rourke will likely take home best actor, Tomei very well may take home Best Supporting Actress. And Aronofsky is a darkhorse for the Best Director. When those people get nods (and they will), and 1 or 2 of them win (and they will), saying the Academy simply isnt fond of wrestling wont really be a legitimate argument to me.

                              If he couldnt get any significant noms from the Academy for The Fountain, I dont think The Wrestler will get Director.

                                He wont win it (Fincher or Boyle, likely), but I think he has a solid shot at a nod.

                                Edit: I mean darkhorse for a nomination, not for the win.
