Sweeney Todd was easily the favorite for Best Costume Design, and the predictions were correct! The next award is Best Art Direction. Will Smith and Salma Hayek will be presenting the award.

A surprise winner by Sweeney Todd with Art Direction, but an award well-deserved! The next award is highly contested and could go to any of the nominees. Jessica Alba and Edward Norton will present the award for Best Cinematography.

Atonement wins the battle for Cinematography! Next up, we look at the screenplay of some of the best movies of 2007 and how they stack up against each other. Halle Berry and George Clooney will be presenting the award for Best Screenplay!

No Country For Old Men was thought by many to be the superior screenplay and it proved it here tonight. Our next two awards are for Best Supporting Actor and Actress. There are up and coming stars, established superstars and more in this category, so it will be interesting to see who wins. Presenting the awards are Alan Arkin, due to his brilliant performance last year in "Little Miss Sunshine," and one of the best British actresses of this era, Dame Judi Dench.

Many people thought that Philip Seymour Hoffman was a shoe-in for Best Supporting actor, but Javier Bardem's outstanding performance netted him a Commie! Next up, we have one of the electrifying awards, Best Director! With some excellent directors like the Coen Brothers, Tim Burton, and Ridley Scott. The presenters are two well-respected people in the film industry, Meryl Streep and Steven Spielberg.

Wow, No Country For Old Men is starting to pick up steam, but Sweeney Todd has won only one less award. Will either win Best Picture? But now, we move to other top awards. Best Actor and Actress are some of the most highly sought after awards in the industry. Who will the Commies go to? Helen Mirren, who was inspirational in her role The Queen, will present along with Forest Whitaker who played one of the cruelest men in mankind, Idi Amin. Let's go to the podium!

- DANIEL DAY-LEWIS - "THERE WILL BE BLOOD"

- DENZEL WASHINGTON - "AMERICAN GANGSTER"











AND THE COMMIE GOES TO.....











DANIEL DAY-LEWIS - "THERE WILL BE BLOOD"




A bit of commentary on this one. DDL was WITHOUT A DOUBT the best in this category. With great performances from mega stars like Depp, Denzel, and Clooney, and Viggo emerging into a star with a spectacular performance in "Eastern Promises", it should say a lot that this was such an easy choice for me. If there was a "Hall of Fame" for these awards, DDL in "There Will Be Blood" would be an immediate inductee. In my opinion, his performance as Daniel Plainview was at LEAST, the best of this century, and up there with the best of all time. Richard Roeper said that Daniel Day Lewis is up there in a territory where only those the likes of Marlon Brando would occupy, and I couldn't agree more. I hope people realize how lucky we are to be able to watch an actor like Day Lewis, even if those chances to watch him only comes once every few years.

Daniel Day-Lewis and Ellen Page, the expected winners take home the Commie! Now, the moment we've all waited for, debated for, and are anticipating, Best Picture! Will it be No Country For Old Men? Sweeney Todd? There Will Be Blood? Or an unexpected challenger like Juno or Michael Clayton? We shall see! Leonardo DiCaprio and Natalie Portman are here to present the award!

Eh maybe. Im a lot higher on Sweeney and Gangster, and a lot lower on Atonement than a lot of people seem to be over in award-town.

Plus, theres some movies I havent seen (Gone Baby Gone, Assassination of Jesse James, Into the Wild, Before the Devil Knows Youre Dead, and most of the highly acclaimed foreign flicks), that are all likely to grab some nominations.

Atonement was weird for me. I saw it right after it won the Globe for best drama, so maybe it was my expectations.

I loved the first third of the film. The Setup to the whole story at the country house, the accidental letter, me wanting to choke the little girl, and so on.

I hated the middle. It dragged to me. I wasnt interested in any of the war stuff, or anything the teenage girl was doing as a nurse.

The ending im told is very surprising and poweful in the book. It was just there to me. I like the concept but... I was still flat from the middle of the movie which I didnt like at all.

That said, it looked pretty and had good music! (I loved the typewriter/music combo they did)

Am I the only one who hates Tim Burton and the garbage he puts out every year?

Youve said this like 8 times, but I suppose ill respond this time with the same response i gave someone else earlier.


"I will say that this is the first of his films that I REALLY liked.

Sleepy Hollow was okay. Charlie and the Chocolate Factory was okay. Both were carried by legendary stories and Johnny Depp, though.

Not really a fan of anything else. I just think he deserves a nod for Sweeney Todd."

I haven't seen Sweeney Todd and I don't plan on it. After seeing Planet of the Apes I'm never giving him money again. I'm sure Big Fish is a good flick and Sweeney Todd looks good if see it baked but on principal alone I'm not putting money in his wallet.

Anyway, your nominations are nice and all but how could you leave out Planet Terror for best visual effects? It had far better CGI work than Transformers.
