to the best of my recollection i can't picture a year that had so many deserving winners, however, there can be only one..  IN light of these transgressions, AMERICA, all your votes are disqualified. booyah!

ps. this thread kills me, good job everybody.

Listen, with two days left, I'd like to make a small plea to everyone here:

if you haven't already, PLEASE find the time to see Owning Mahowny before the deadline. It's not the best picture of the year by any stretch, but if Philip Seymour Hoffman can't get a best actor nomination, at least, on a PTA originated website, then something's wrong. This is an amazing performance, and one definitely deserving of some kind of recognition.
Those who say that the totalitarian state of the Soviet Union was not "real" Marxism also cannot admit that one simple feature of Marxism makes totalitarianism necessary:  the rejection of civil society. Since civil society is the sphere of private activity, its abolition and replacement by political society means that nothing private remains. That is already the essence of totalitarianism; and the moralistic practice of the trendy Left, which regards everything as political and sometimes reveals its hostility to free speech, does nothing to contradict this implication.

When those who hated capital and consumption (and Jews) in the 20th century murdered some hundred million people, and the poster children for the struggle against international capitalism and America are now fanatical Islamic terrorists, this puts recent enthusiasts in an awkward position. Most of them are too dense and shameless to appreciate it, and far too many are taken in by the moralistic and paternalistic rhetoric of the Left.

I really liked All the Real Girls (after seeing that an George WAshington..i'm very excited about David Gordon Green); Spider had 2 great performances but besides that it left me cold.

Odd as this sounds I really care about this.  I have really tried doing my homework the last few days (after I turned in the ballot, but oh well).  I have seen All the Real Girls, Spider, Monster, In America & 21 Grams.

I kept thinking 31st for some reason, and it was 25th.  I tried to see more recent films to make a good vote, but since most of my votes would've gone to Kill Bill anyway, I think it's best for me to just speculate what people are going to vote for.

I didn't catch many recent films as I tried to catch up on films in the past. Classics.  Mm yes.
