I totally forgot to send my nominations in.  Oh well, I doubt it would've changed things much, except for maybe in the actor and actress categories (Keisha Castle-Hughes for Whale Rider, Jack Black for School of Rock, Philip Seymour Hoffman for Owning Mahowney, Djimon Hounsou for In America).  But I doubt the people I was thinking of nominating were people others had thought of as well.  Still, though, the nominations look good.

Wow.  I'm incredibly shocked how, dare I say, 'safe' these picks were.  I would have thought All the Real Girls, Gerry, or Elephant would have gotten some props.

And PDL in the dvd picks... :roll:

They spilt the votes.

Far more mainstream than I thought it'd be. Obviously you got Kill Bill and ROTK which are very mainstream anyway, but loads of the rest is very mainstream too. Overall pretty bland choices, though a couple of nice surprises scattered throughout. Sure though, if you think the nominations are a disappointment, that the actual winners will pretty much unanimous.

And what changes would make the nominations less "FUCK?"  I really don't see what the big deal is, 'cause most of the mainstream movies that were nominated were actually good movies.  It would be different if shit like the Matrix movies were nominated, though in hindsight I do question Kill Bill: Volume 1 being there.  21 Grams is hardly mainstream (and hardly great, but that's beside the point).  All the Real Girls was marginal at best; a film with memorable moments, but weak dialogue and execution.  I don't see why people here drool so much over that film; George Washington was better.  Gerry, from mod-age's description, sounds like pretentious shit.  Granted, I didn't get to see it in the whole weekend it came here, but it is on my list of "must see" films, if you could call it that.  Elephant hasn't even been released in theatres here yet, because it keeps getting delayed by the distributor.  But what do I know; I didn't nominate anything.

And, it really sucks that Finding Nemo is lumped in with those other films.  It's clearly the best animated film of the year, and perhaps the past five years, but it most likely won't get any kudos going up against Lost in Translation and 21 Grams.

All the Real Girls, In America, The Station Agent & American Splendor are 3 films I would have liked to seen more for.

Although I did see the first 2 after turning in my ballot.

You're kidding me. Finding Nemo sucks. Triplettes de Belleville is far better, and more deserving.

Kill Bill will be this year's PDL. Not that I didn't vote nominate in every category it got nominated in though.

How, may I ask, did Finding Nemo suck?

no Elephant noms.
no 21 Grams for best cinematography.
no City Of God for best picture.


I knew I was gonna hate the oscars, I didn't think I would be so fucking choked with this site.


 :(
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.

yeah... well, I don't think people put much thought into the votes this year.

I saw some of the dumbest shit being nominated.  This is how the oscars work too though.

I wouldn't care if we called it off, really.  

I like Kill Bill as much as the next guy, but "Best Screenplay?"
