    I've never heard of half that stuff. I live in a cave of coolness.
    Wall-E better get animated, that movie was so cute I almost puked.
    Ledger will probably get, or would have probably gotten best supporting actor because he totally deserved it.
    The rest, meh.

    Thank god the overhyped Dark Knight wasn't nominated for Best picture.
    Not that I care for Oscar winners at all (still love to watch the show), but at least they have that right.
    And while Wall-E was good and all, it also was overrated as hell. But the best of the nominated of course.

    Wow, couple of surprises in there, but otherwise predictable.

    After all of that hoopla the Academy made the composers of TDK go through, they didn't even get a nod for it?

    Yea, Downey I saw coming, but I would hope the academy wouldn't honor Hoffman for Doubt over Ledger... that would be a huge mistake.

    I was going to say i don't think button should have been in there but, as i reflected on the movie as a whole and not for it's separate entities.

    WALL-E might get more than Best Animated Feature.

    Frozen River was actually filmed and takes place in my region.

    Good year box office wise for the oscar nominated films. Im a little disapointed that Revolutionary Road is not getting that much attention I though that movie was fantastic. Also disapointing the attention the Reader is getting but thats more Weinstiens fault. You do after all need money to market a film. But overall should be a great ceremony this year some awesome films up there.

    What!?!

    I would hate for me, or any kids I may have in the future, to watch what you considered meant for young audience. That's about as dumbed down and safe as I would like any feature to be.


    oh, and I'm pulling for Wall-e and Hellboy II. I feel both movies pushed techniques in there own areas

    I hope Rourke gets the award. He has been a freaking solid actor his entire life and has gotten little respect from his peers.

    I'd personally have given him one for Angel Heart.

    I'm with Uryado on this one. No where did I see any adult content, otherwise it wouldn't have been rated G now, would it? Ohhh, Wall-E [SPOILER] getting crushed [SPOILER] is too much for the kids?

    Oh, and as far as being overrated, I seriously disagree. I think Wall-E is one of the most intelligent films I have seen in years, the fact that it's animated and it's for a young audience is out of the question. This movie deserves a lot.
