"Brokeback Mountain":

Ang Lee, "Brokeback Mountain":

ACTOR IN A LEADING ROLE
Philip Seymour Hoffman, "Capote":

ACTRESS IN A LEADING ROLE
Felicity Huffman, "Transamerica":

I'm not going to bother predicting the technical awards and the rest, I'm never any good at predicting those.
While I did not see Brokeback Mountain or Munich yet, I did see many of the films nominated in the major categories so I do have some grounds for my predictions:
Capote, Cinderella Man, Crash, Good Night and Good Luck, A History of Violence, Transamerica, Walk the Line
Playoffs? Don't talk about playoffs!

For best movie, definitely CRASH!!! Amazing. For actors I would go for George Clooney (Syriana) and Heath Ledger (Brokeback Mountain). As for actresses, I would go with Michelle Williams (Brokeback) and Felicity Huffman (Transamerica).
It will definitely be a night to enjoy!!!

I hope Crash wins something, either best movie or best screenplay...I thought that was one of the best films i have seen for a while.

Quoting 9VSPO (Reply 1):

George Clooney, "Syriana":

I hope he wins.

i agree, i though he was excellent in Syriana


To be honest i was slightly dissapointed with Munich, just because i read the book that the film is based on, and the film was a bit weak...Still a good movie, but not worthan Oscar, IMO

I'm going to go out on a limb and say Crash will get best picture. I saw it last night and was impressed. Not nearly as confusing as a Quentin Tarintino movie but all the stories intertwined makes a good movie. Hollywood does like their own and seeing LA presented as the centerpiece of the movie will go a long way.

Brokeback Mountain is getting a whole lot of attention but perhaps it will fall by the wayside tonight as others have in the past. I could give a rat's ass if it is the "liberal Hollyweird agenda" and the "gay agenda." I personally have no desire to see a couple of gay cowboys but if it is well directed, well shot, well written, and well acted it deserves to win in those categories. At the core of it the movie is a love story. It just happens to be about a couple of manly men on the Western frontier instead of the normal (not that gays are abnormal-let's not start that debate please.) guy and girl story.

I like Felicity Huffman but what I have seen so far of Transamerica looks terrible. If Dillon wins for Best Supporting Actor it will be for his body of work (which the Oscars like to reward) versus his single role in Crash. They can't ignore There's Something About Mary anymore!  biggrin

Capote deserves best film, followed by Crash. Philip Seymour Hoffman deserves best actor, certainly not Heath Ledger for his non-performance of the year.

Best actress should definitely go to Feicity Huffman in Transamerica. Keira Knightley desereves no more than a slap across the face for her coy smirking all the way through Pride and Prejudice.

As for Walk the Line -- the best thing that can be said about it is that Joaquin Phoenix actually makes listening to Johnny Cash bearable.

Michelle Williams deserves an Oscar for her performance in Brokeback Mountain.

If it's like here in Mexico, TNT will broadcast it in English.

My picks:

Best Movie: Munich is a superb movie, but Brokeback Mountain has everything to win: a controversial topic, great direction and wonderful actors. My vote goes for BM.

Director: Ang Lee, "Brokeback Mountain".

Actor: David Strathairn, "Good Night, and Good Luck".

Actress: Reese Witherspoon, "Walk the Line"

Cinematography: Rodrigo Prieto, "Brokeback Mountain" or Emmanuel Lubezki, "The New World. Both Mexicans, both great photographers.

I've got a few bets on:

Clooney as best director will win me $80
Gyllenhall as best supp will win me $60
Phoenix as best actor will win me $100
Huffman as best actress will win me $74
Capote as best pic will win me $160
Williams for supporting actress will win me $110

So as you can see, outsiders. Total outlay was $80. Fingers crossed!

Here you redeem yourself. I've never found him to be a good actor. Too stiff. Although Christian Haydensen takes the Worst Actor category for me.

So far, Clooney has won for Syriana (yay), King Kong for its visual effects (I would have preferred Narnia, but no real problems there), and Wallace and Gromit for best animated film (fantastic movie, and I'm thrilled they got it, but I think Howl's Moving Castle deserved it more - Miyazaki doesn't get the credit he's due).

I'm really surprised the Academy went for Crash. Throughout the entire awards season, Brokeback Mountain won one award after another, practically sweeping all the precursors and guilds for the best picture prize (the only exception I can think of offhand was the SAG's who went for Crash).
I've seen Crash but not Brokeback Mountain. I personally thought Crash was very weak and one-dimensional. The characters were so over the top they didn't seem real. I admit I had high expectations going in. It had a very understandable message, but I thought it was poor film-making. I find it utter BS that Crash won for original screenplay.
Overall, I'm disappointed that Capote and Good Night and Good Luck didn't fare better. I saw both of those movies and I thought both received more more credit from the Academy. Though I'm glad they recognized Hoffman.
I would have preferred Clooney getting recognized specifically for "Good Night and Good Luck." Instead the Academy decided it was time to screw over Paul Giamatti for the third straight year. I give them some credit: they gave him a nomination this year, so he's not quite as despised as Jim Carrey and Scarlett Johannson, neither of whom have ever been nominated.

EDIT: At least I fared alright on my predictions this year. I hit 8 of 12 I made on this thread earlier.

Now that would be telling you, and leaving myself open to retaliation! Honestly though, I've no particular favourites.

While Crash is a great film, I thought Capote deserved the Oscar. There will be wailing and gnashing of teeth that Brokeback Mountain didn't win, but can people honestly say that it deserved to? It got all the attention for the wrong reasons and it wasn't even a great story. It certainly didn't portray homosexuality in a positive light: the story of two losers, terrified of even acknowlegeding that their sexuality after having sex together ("I ain't queer" -- "Me neither"), who marry for all the wrong reasons and who live for their bi-annual hook-ups. And as for Heath Ledger's performance -- to paraphrase Dorothy Parker on Katherine Hepburn: "He ran the whole gamut of emotions from A to B".

What straight person would come out of that film and think homo- or bisexuality was anything other than sad?

I am very very glad that CRASH won Best Picture. I think it is one of the best movies I have ever seen. I left the theater speechless...it was captivating and I was disappointed that the score didn't get a nomination...though "In The Deep" did get a much deserved Best Song nomination.
