you know man would u at least once try backing your statements up at least once.  It would be a nice change from blatantly stated everyone elses opinion is wrong.

Cuaron is a decent director, but I still think Marty did a better job this year. Departed was a very good film, and only a totally awesome director can make Dicaprio look that good ;)

Cuaron and Greengrass are very skilled as well, but I just feel that my own preference puts Marty above them, especially this year.

Hypocritical coming from the same person who just said he loved the Departed yet gave no reasons why he loved it oh so much.

excuse me?

I said marty was deserving because the departed was great. 

Yes i didnt back up the movie that wasnt the point of the topic.  I can back it up but you have never that i have seen ever backed up a opinion.  I apologize for being so blunt but its been buggin me recently.

Look the reson i liked The departed was the because the plot was well thought out.  The acting really fleshed out the charectars and set up a very intriging ( spelling?) conflict.  It was able to show both sides of said conflict without feeling rushed.  The acting from was great, i really felt the pain of di caprio as he tried so hard to infiltrate the mob while trying not to lose his soul and moral compass.

 Come on guys. Can't we all get along? I've enjoyed reading this thread so far. I don't want to see it turn into a thread of anger. The only best picture nominee I've seen so far is The Departed. I made a special point to see it because I'm a huge Jack Nicholson fan and I wanted to see him in a Scorcese movie. Since I haven't seen the other films I can't really comment on who is deserving. Anyone sad that Borat got left out in the rain? I'm not that sad, but I'd like to hear y'all's opinions.
Aaahh! This movie just throws you violently into the next scene!

 I agree. I sometimes wonder why that is.

Because it's easier to seem deep and artistic when you're depressing. Ask any Goth. :^)

Yes... FROM WHAT YOU'VE SEEN. Thank you very much. End of story.

They always have. This year, they give it to a comedy that doesn't deserve it, though. God, the Academy confuses me so much...

 I haven't seen Little Miss Sunshine. The reviews were mixed and alot of the people I know said it was ok. So I was a little surprised to see it get nominated.

 LOL. Yeah alot of people think that it's alot harder to do drama than it is to do comedy. I never understood that.

It got some good reviews. How it got nominated in so many awards, I don't know. How Babel got nominated, as well confuses me.

Exactly! It's easy to elicit feelings of tragedy. Kill the hero under unfair circumstances, or someone the hero loves, or make them suffer needlessly, show the negative impact of an act of random violence. The list goes on. Nobody's gonna watch a character get raped and think, "That wasn't tragic." It's SOOO much harder to get a whole audience to agree, "That was funny!" Look at how many more failed comedies hit the big screen.

Has anyone considered the artistic merit of the Naked Gun movies? EVERY frame, EVERY set, lovingly crafted and filled with so many visual gags that are so obscure, you'll never catch 'em all. And it's coupled with jokes that elicit constant one-two punches. THAT is film-making.

Did anyone notice BORAT getting nominated for Best Screenplay Based on Previously Produced Material?

If the Oscars weren't almost 80 years old, I'd say they were having a mid-life crisis.
Snowhead the Blue Reindeer gave me all the presents in the world.

Thats a good question and a good series of movies too, ive always felt neilson never got the respect as a comedian he really deserved, hell I cant watch OJ (the murdering bastard) spike the baby without dying of laughter everytime.
