American Gangster, Atonement, Eastern Promises, The Great Debaters, Michael Clayton, No Country For Old Men and There Will Be Blood
Seven nominees !? Really Hollywood Foreign Press Association. Are you eager to become The Golden Satellites? How embarrassing... get it together. The surprise snub would have to be Into the Wild.
George Clooney, Michael Clayton
Daniel Day-Lewis, There Will Be Blood
James McAvoy, Atonement
Viggo Mortenson, Eastern Promises
Denzel Washington, American Gangster
Bad news for Emile Hirsch (Into the Wild) but I'm so glad my Viggo is in... and perhaps the extra push they give the film (in Picture) might be the boost he needed to stay in the race for someone who a) refused Academy membership and b) is a great performer but doesn't take truly Baity roles.
Cate Blanchett, Elizabeth The Golden Age
Julie Christie, Away From Her
Jodie Foster, The Brave One
Anelina Jolie, A Mighty Heart
Keira Knightley, Atonement
Just as I suspected but it wasn't hard. Most of the heat was in comedy. Still, one has to wonder now if Cate will get her default double dip with Oscar after all. ayiyiyiyi.
Across The Universe, Charlie Wilsons War, Hairspray, Juno, Sweeney Todd
Say what? And I don't speak of Charlie (which if it was going to do well it would be here) but of Across the Universe. Snubbed: Knocked Up, Superbad, The Savages
Johnny Depp, Sweeney Todd
Ryan Gosling, Lars and the Real Girl
Tom Hanks, Charlie Wilsons War
Phillip Seymour Hoffman, The Savages
John C Reilly, Walk Hard
Reilly is the only surprise and he's got the December fresh-in-the-memory thing happening for him. But I'm still sad that Linney keeps getting shunned for The Savages when it's clearly her film.
Amy Adams, Enchanted
Nikki Blonsky, Hairspray
Helena Bonham-Carter, Sweeney Todd
Marion Cotillard, La Vie En Rose
Ellen Page, Juno
wow. I predicted this 5/5... and it was a tight field. They had to leave out Heigl (a typical Globe type girl), Nicole Kidman a favorite, Laura Linney for The Savages etcetera. I continue to be angry though that Cotillard is dubbed comedy/musical when she neither sings nor cracks jokes.
Tim Burton, Sweeney Todd ,The Coen Bros, No Country For Old Men , Schnabel, The Diving Bell and Butterfly , Scott, American Gangster , Wright, Atonement
Good news for all of these best picture bids with Oscar
Best Supporting Actor
Casey Affleck, The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford, Javier Bardem, No Country For Old Men , John Travolta Hairspray, Tom Wilkinson Michael Clayton
Almost the list I predicted. Not quite. Could it be the Oscar list? Why isn't von Sydow getting any traction?
Best Supporting Actress
Cate Blanchett, I'm Not There , Julia Roberts, Charlie Wilson's War , Saoirse Ronan, Atonement, Amy Ryan, Gone Baby Gone, Tilda Swinton, Michael Clayton
Will the Oscars also pull the genuflection to the return of Julia Roberts? I hope not but you never know.
Juno, No Country For Old Men, Atonement, The Diving Bell and Butterfly and Charlie Wilson's War
The only surprise her would be Diving Bell. Previously more honored for directorial and cinematographic choices
Into the Wild, Grace Is Gone, The Kite Runner, Atonement, and Eastern Promises
Interesting. Not that Oscar will follow suit.
4 Months 3 Weeks and 2 Days, The Diving Bell and Butterfly, Persepolis, Lust Caution and The Kite Runner
Won't look a thing like Oscar's list (different criteria) although I do expect that 4 Months is in... and possibly Persepolis (though they might not double dip there since it's also up for animated with Oscar voters
