http://www.oscar.com/nominees

My favorites to win the Oscars are:

Best Actor: I like all the actors! But I've only seen Eastern Promises. Viggo Mortensen was terrific in that film. I want him to win or Tommy Lee Jones. I'm too turned off right now regarding Johnny Depp's recent film choices to hope he wins.

Best Supporting Actor: Phillip Seymour Hoffman in Charlie Wilson's War. He was superb in it. I did see Into the Wild. Hal Holbrook had a small part, but he did an excellent job, and if Judi Dench could win an Oscar for her small role in Shakespeare in Love, well, I wouldn't be surprised if Holbrook takes home the Oscar.

Best Actress: Cate Blanchett, although I didn't see Elizabeth: The Golden Age. I didn't see any of the films in this category.

Best Supporting Actress: Cate Blanchett for I'm Not There.  I didn't see any films in this category either.

Best Director: I'll go with Julian Schnabel. Great cinematography in that film too! I didn't see it, but from the trailer, it looks awesome. I will definitely see this movie on DVD or on IFC or Sundance channel.

I didn't see any of the films for Best Picture. I thought about seeing Atonement and Michael Clayton. The best kind of film I'd see of the films nominated (regarding script) would be Atonement, so I'll go with that, although I don't think it will win.

I can't believe Julia Roberts was not nominated for a Best Actress Award in Charlie Wilson's War! First, I'd like to say, Roberts is not one of my favorite actresses by any stretch of the imagination, but she was EXCELLENT in that film; and that make-up scene was fabulous! Julia Roberts rocked.

Gee, I don't know if she pissed-off The Academy or what....but I'm shocked. IMO, that was Roberts best performance ever. The last performance I really liked her in was in the film Mystic Pizza! That's going way back (But I must admit, I liked her more for her looks in that film...heh-heh).

Wow! A lot of surprise winners!

Throughout the years, I've always had a love/hate relationship regarding the Oscars, but tonight, although most my favorites lost, I wasn't disappointed because there were SO MANY intelligent films made last year.

My comments:

Cool that IMDb got a free plug in the show about an upcoming film...That is the greatest film site on the Internet. Want to know what your favorite actor/actress/directors' next film projects are in the next 3 or so years? Check out IMDb.com. Awesome site.

As I was saying, 'How effin' rude!' when songwriter (and actress) Markéta Irglová wasn't given time to give her speech, after the commercial was over they did give her the chance. So that was good. Her and Glen Hansards' song, Falling Slowly, was the best song in the film, and the best song nominated, IMO.

I was thinking about my favorite singer, Elton John, during the songs nominated, and so was very pleasantly surprised when they did a clip of Elton when he won his Oscar in 1995 for the 1994 song from The Lion King: Can You Feel the Love Tonight.  I remember there were about 4 songs nominated and 3 of those 4 songs were his. I mean, how could he not take home an Oscar that night? I was just hoping that my favorite song from that film would be the winner, and it was. So cool to see that scene again! And Elton LOVES films so I know that was a very special win for him. Gosh, I'd love to sit down with Elton and talk about films all day....

Critics were complaining about Colin Farrell's long hair...He looks hot to me! I love his long hair. I wish my BF would grow his hair that long; he has in the past, but prefer it short.

Nice to see Owen Wilson again....And I hear will be back filming in March.

Jon Stewart was funny and a great host.

To be honest, I've never cared much about the Oscars as politics with the groups voting seems to have almost as much to do with many selections as the quality of the work.

I saw part of his monologue on the Net last night. Quite funny.
