this years oscar nominees...? by john's son Q: for the first time in years i've actually seen four of the five best picture nominees. who has seen as many or even all of them? what do you think of them? which ones deserved their nomination or were in your opinion over-rated?

A: I've seen all of them, they are really good, but if I had to choose one to win I would vote for Michael Clayton. It's so well made and the story is amazing. It's George Clooney's best performance. No country for old men, should win only for directing and best supporting actor for Javier Bardem, because he is amazing in this film. Atonement, is very good too, I love the story, it's really sad, but I don't think it should win best movie, it should win best adapted screenplay There will be blood, is so good, I just became a Daniel Day Lewis fan, he deserves the Oscar for best actor. This movie has a good chance of winning. Juno, is very original, the movie is cool, but not in the level of the other nominees. It's going to stay between No country for old men and There will be blood.

A: Picture: Babel (there is only one category for Best Picture. The Academy Awards don't divide comedy/musicals and drama) Director: Martin Scorsese for the Departed Actor: Forest Whittaker for Last King of Scotland Actress: Helen Mirren for The Queen Supporting Actor: Jack Nicholson in The Departed Supporting Actress: Jennifer Hudson for Dreamgirls

This years Oscar nominees for Best picture:Good or Bad? by ♥sunflower♥ Q: I personally think the academy chose the wrong movies to be nominated for best picture.i was surprised that dream girls or pursuit of happiness did not get a nom. what are your thought on the best picture nominees?

A: You should try to see some of the movies that are nominated, you can't judge if you haven't even wath them, rigth? I higly reccomend the movie "Pan's Laberynt", wich is nominated for best Foreing Languaje Movie. It is a great fairy tail for adults, full of feelings - from the best feelings in the heart of a girl to the worst hate in the men. It has some very violent scenes, but they are completely justified to tell the story. You can imagine the quality of the movie, when it has gotten another 5 nominations in other categories as well. In the other hand, i hadn't watch "Babel" but i know Iñarritu always make good movies,yes, they are dramatic, but usually very well done. Try to see those, you migth be sorprised how good are they! You let me know.

Do you think any of the women Oscar nominees will auction their dresses to buy food for starving children? by geeketta Q: Why not add a bit of charitable usefulness to Oscar night and have an ebay type auction for the dresses worn that night with the proceeds going to feed the hungry children around the world? The stars have their political agendas in their thank yous... this year it being global green... I hope next year, they will put food in the mouths of malnurished children and walk the talk of their liberal philosophy that is fueled by their capatilistic big business riches.

A: Some will (it's not as if they can ever wear it again!). Try checking out the website for Clothes off Our Back, which has already started auctioning some items. http://www.clothesoffourback.org/categories.php

Oscar Academy Awards 2008 Nominees? by Heherson J Q: http://podblogcaster.blogspot.com/2008/01/academy-awards-or-oscars-nominees-2008.html

A: I'm disappointed that Tom Hanks, Angelina Jolie and Tim Burton all got snubbed. My picks: Johnny Depp Ellen Page Phillip Seymour Hoffman Ruby Dee Paul Thomas Anderson Juno

What do you think of the Oscar nominees (link included)? by Punk Princess Q: I was really happy that Johnny Depp won a nominee!!! He was just perfect in Sweeney Todd!!! But i felt sorry that Tim Burton wasn't nominated at the directors' catagory! He deserves it!!! He has never been nominated!!! What do you think? http:/www.oscars.com http://www.oscars.com

A: Yeah, it's a shame Sweeney Todd didn't get many nominations. Still, congratulations, Johnny! Only problem I had with the nominations? Take a look at the noms for best makeup: La Vie en Rose Norbit Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End NORBIT?!!! You're kidding me, right?! Norbit got a nomination for makeup and Sweeney Todd didn't?! What kind of a world do we live in where a film like Norbit actually gets an Oscar nomination?!!

How do they decide Oscar Nominees and Winners? by 80's_lover Q:

A: Nominees are picked by the academy after lots of "research" (see link below). Winners are also picked by the members of the Academy from the 5 nominees. Who is the academy you might ask? "The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences is a professional honorary organization composed of over 6,000 motion picture craftsmen and women."

Upcoming oscar nominees (best picture)? by Q: Okay .. best picture nominees for the upcoming oscars. What do u think, out of the movies that had come out so far this yr, is gonna be nominated. (5 nominees) I think: 1.) Toy Story 3 2.) Inception 3.) Hereafter ---- all i can really think of .. everything else sucked

A: I think the following films are frontrunners at this point: Definitely Inception and Toy Story 3. Probably The Kids Are All Right and The Social Network. Maybe Hereafter, but I wouldn't count on it. However, I wouldn't completely count out The Ghost Writer. The movies with the real shots aren't out yet: Black Swan, True Grit, Love & Other Drugs, Blue Valentine, The King's Speech, and maybe 127 Hours. Also, I think The Conspirator would have a great chance if they decide to release it this year.

Which oscar award nominees have been in the star war films? by sohail h Q:

why 10 oscar nominees for best picture? by Q: it's the first time that happens...why so many,it's like every good movie gets nominated

A: The Academy expanded the field beginning this year in order to give more films a chance and not have so many "snubs" in the category.

Did your Oscar 2009 nominees match? by Trish S Q: Here is a slideshow on 2009 Oscar Nominees http://celeb9.com/slideshow/48/2009-osca... Did they match with what you expected?

where can i find that oscar nominees film from last year? by pupppppy Q: remember that clip that they played at the very beginning of the oscars last year with all the nominees on the screen? it was just a white background and then they would all come up for a second smiling or doing whatever, i can't remember if they said anything or if there was music playing... but i do remember that at one point someone was humming the tune from pan's labyrinth.... anyone??

A: try www.oscar.com

Where can i find the 2010 oscar nominees in short films/animation part? by S K Q: Im looking for the list of 82nd (2010) academy award nominees in short films/animation part. where can i find this list? and if it doesn't release yet when can i find the nominees list? Thanks

A: Nominees for the 2010 Academy Awards will be announced February 2, 2010. (Oscars are March 7, 2010, not in February) Since the criteria for short films is that they must have a three day paid admission run in Los Angeles with at least 2 showings a day or have won a major film festival award by September 30, 2009 you can see that it would be impossible to have any kind of a list by now. Check back at the Oscar site on 2/2/2010 for the list of nominees: http://www.oscars.org

how can i watch the oscar nominees before the awards ceremony? by Q: i love movies but watching the oscars seems pointless to me when i haven't seen any of the movies except for like a few. how can i watch movies like the artist and war horse before the oscars comes on? when they arent in theaters or on dvd.

A: You either need to find them on a Video on Demand service, or find it in a theater (some smaller theaters show them fairly late). Oscar buzz is often mentioned before many movies even get their wide releases, so if you pay attention to news like that, there's always plenty of time to see them before the awards show.

When are Oscar nominees notified of their nomination before it's announced to the public in January? by prophetessamy Q: I know they are notified before it's announced, but what is the earliest possible that they can start notifying them?

A: They find out when the rest of us humans do.

Do family members of Oscar nominees sit with the nominees? by Bookworm Q: I was watching Kate Winslet's acceptance speech and she didn't seem to know where her parents were. I was under the impression that the family members can sit together (especially if they get tickets from the nominee). Any idea why her parents were perhaps not sitting with her?

A: yes. the nominees usually have their parents, spouse, or a family member sitting right next to them - or all of them. at the BAFTA awards, i think, Kate had her parents sitting right next to her. i mean, she had her husband sam sitting right next to her? it's not easy to get several tickets in the front row for one nominee's family...i don't think so.

Where are the Oscar nominees showing? by Someone Q: Ii am a big Oscar fan and I can't wait to see the nominees tomorrow on TV but i don't know what channel to look for, is it on ABC?

A: No.

A: maybe so it can be live in UK - it is where it is all at.

Where can I find the official 2011 Oscar Nominees for Best Picture montage? by Q: I looked EVERYWHERE on youtube, i went on the Oscar website, I searched it on Yahoo...nothing but stupid fan made montages and slideshows, etc. I want to see the official video, where the guy from The Kings Speech was saying the speech and they were showing clips of the other nominees for best picture. It was very moving and made me tear up a little bit, because it was very inspiring and beautiful. Please tell me where to find it.

A: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/83rd_Academy_Awards i was looking at this today

Oscar nominees will be announced tomorrow morning. How long do you think the announcement will be? by Sea Star Q: The announcement of the nominees for the Academy Awards will be announced on TV early tomorrow morning. I plan to watch it live at 5:30am Pacific Time and I was wondering if anyone knew how long this announcement will last? Thanks everyone!

A: No more than 5-8 minutes, as all Anne Hathaway and the Academy president will do is read the names of only the top categories.

Does anybody know when the oscar nominees get announced? by Josh Q: I've been looking around for the nominees for the 2009 oscars mainly because I want to see if Heath Ledger is nominated for best supporting actor or best actor for his phenomenal performance as the joker in the dark knight. Can someone tell me if they know who the nominees are or when they will be announced?

A: The 81st Academy Awards nominations will be announced on Thursday, January 22, 2009, at 5:30 a.m. PT in the Academy's Samuel Goldwyn Theater.

oscar nominees? by kay Q: can people that have died after making a movie still get an oscar? can they even be nominated?

A: Yes. it's happened before, and it'll probably happen again. Peter Finch is the only posthumous winner, and James Dean, Spencer Tracy, and Massimo Troisi are the only other posthumously nominated performers in this category. Dean was posthumously nominated twice.

Oscar nominees????????????????? by Natasha T Q: What do you think about the nominees?

A: They were OK but they should have nominated The Dark Knight for the best picture category ( I am talking about just a nomination, TDK can never be a winner ). At least, they should give room for the blockbusters to do well at the Oscars and I think they should... they must put an action/thriller movie with some sensible plot every year in the best picture category, I thought that The Dark Knight had a very sensible and plausible plot and it deals with several complicated moral issues althought in a different manner. If they continue to ignore such movies people will lost interest in Oscars.... they will become Academy awards for low budget movies.
