Agree about Cate.

 

PSH was better in Charlie Wilson than in Savages which is about 1/2 as good as the critics said.

 

There Will Be Blood is the movie of the year; actually of the last several years and the performance of the decade.

 

Kyra Knightly should be drowned in a river.

I was disappointed that Angelina Jolie wasn't nominated for "A Mighty Heart". I still think that was the best performance of the year for the women.

 

I also had hoped that "Into the Wild" would be nominated and it didn't get anything either other than Hal Holbrook for best supporting actor.

 

I'm disappointed in "Juno" and "Acrapment" er, I mean "Atonement". While Juno was funny, her dialog as a 16 year old was totally unrealistic. "Atonement" was boring. It reminded me of "English Patient" which bored me to tears. I thought "Atonement" was manipulative for the awards versus a well-acted story. Just my opinion.

Jolie's performance in "A Might Heart" was one of the most calculated grabs at an Oscar I've ever witnessed. Star time. (Replete with casting a nondescript teddy bear as her husband. Does anyone believe an investigative journalist could be so nondescript? Someone had casting approval. Angelina's hubby-producer?)

 

Just my opinion, Expat. We can't agree on everything. I do share your hots for Olivier.

 

Cotillard must win. One of the greatest performances I've ever seen.

It says a lot about a person's taste -- or lack thereof -- when the prefer to see Angelina Jolie and her lips over act through a film that watch something with some class and understatement like "Atonement" or "The English Patient." Do you like bowling as well?

 

I adored "The Savages."

 

Also, the best documentary I saw all year "The Rape of Europa" wasn't nominated either.

 

Certain people -- like Johnny Depp and Cate Blanchett -- can just fart for 90 minutes and get nominated for an Oscar. Afterall, Blanchett won an Oscar for the worst impersonation of Kate Hepburn ever. A drag queen could have played it better.

One could also say who are you to criticize someone else's taste just because it is contrary to yours. Some would argue that there is no such thing as bad taste - just different taste.

 

And your snarky remark about bowling speaks volumnes about you!

 

You're on safer ground when you spend your time promoting your stable of hookers.

The movie There Will Be Blood is being acclaimed for the outstanding performance by Daniel Day-Lewis, but I am surprised that Paul Dano didn't get a supporting actor nod. He played Dwayne in Little Miss Sunshine, and here he plays the pentecostal preacher Eli, a role that he seems born to play. In my opinion, he was as good as Day-Lewis. Actually, all the roles were well-acted, but the story is pretty much a downer as Day-Lewis plays a really mean oilman...and I do mean "mean!"

Dick Ho love the satire. Of course Marco and Olivier still tops for me, but love that comment.

 

As to boring and extra boring Oscar winners, yes to English Patient and how about adding Out of Africa to that list. I think there are few others as well. I tried watching English patient at home and it took me a week to finish it I kept falling asleep, just like reading the Tax Code.
