I think the Departed will not win Best Picture, but Scorsese will win Best Director

My predictions are the same as they were in early December. I figure it'll be:

The Departed
Dreamgirls
Babel
United 93
toss up between either Eastwood war flick (Letters is allowed to be nominated right? It's not technically a foreign flick I believe. Ah well).

Sadly I've only seen Departed and Flags so I don't know if that's really fair, but given what I was seeing beforehand that's kinda how I saw it going down.

Color me surprised that Meryl Streep is getting all of this Oscar buzz. I don't remember anyone having a single good thing to say about that film when it was out.

Also, if Murphy were to win, that certainly wouldn't be something that I was ever expecting.

To be considered for the foreign langue catagory, a film has to be submitted by a countries film board, or government, or some such thing.

I thought she was great in the movie. I loved 'The Devil wears Prada.'

My long shot on the list is Steve Carell, he deserves it, dunno if he'll get it.

And don't be surprised if Borat gets nominated for best picture it could happen. I had it on my list for a bit and then took it out.

Okay, that's about how I thought it worked, just wanted to be safe. I figure it'll be Letters then. Filming it from the other perspective of that battle is the kind of stuff the Oscar's will fucking eat up.

And yeah, I haven't even seen it yet but even I know Pan's Labyrinth will win best Foreign. :)

In your neck of the woods maybe; I heard and read nothing but raves for her performance in DWP: in my opinion she was brilliantly subtle, funny and just delicious; a role that in any lesser actor's hands would've easily turned into a Cruella DeVil Meets Hitler caricature, she made Miranda Priestley a living, breathing, complex human being.
The film is far from the best, but I thought it was entertaining, funny as hell and great to look at, and Meryl's performance was indeed a triumph (imo)


Oh, and I agree with the guy who said that Scorcese will win director but not Pic.
I wouldn't be shocked of Babel, Dreamgirls or Little Miss Sunshine took the prize.

I didn't bother to make any predictions this year, but frankly I expect things to play out pretty much without any surprises so what's the point really.
