Calling it for Waltz right now. Nobody else even has a chance.
Indeed. And he wins.

Hopefully sometime in the next few years Matt Damon gets another nomination.

Surprised I haven't seen a lot of these nominated movies; might have to check out the Dvds.

BTW, my picks/predictions:

Best Film: Hurt Locker
Best Director: Katherine Bigelow
The only thing I find funny about this is that she goes from directing a Harrison Ford vanity picture to what ended up being Oscar bait. Right place right time I guess.

Penelope Cruz looking as ravishing as ever (great colour on the gown).

Neil Patrick Harris' opening musical number was good.

Waltz wins, totally unsurprisingly. He must really have been running out of ways to give an acceptance speech.

Yeah, I've noticed that Trek seems to be to go-to movie in gadget advertisements lately.

No surprise there, either. But again, a completely deserving Oscar. Up was my favorite film of the year.

No surprises with Up's win, but hey, it was a very good film (even if it wasn't quite among Pixar's best, IMO).

I've never heard of The Secret of Kells. Maybe I should check it out -- anyone here seen it?

I should have seen The Princess & The Frog when it was in theaters. It looks good.

Re: The 82nd Annual Academy Awards - discussion thread

I still don't get how "Down in New Orleans" ended up one of The Princess and the Frog's two nominated songs; "Friends on the Other Side" and "Dig A Little Deeper" were both much better.

Totally deserved win for "The Weary Kind".

Yet another given. Hmm, I notice every winner so far has been the last nominee listed.

Yeah... I believe it's still playing at a discount theatre near me. I think I'll go check it out.
