Well - here's hoping Scorcese takes the Oscar home finally.... That would redeem the academy for at least this year imo

Scorcese is nominated for directing, and "Departed" is up for best picture, among other things.

This could be his year. Dreamgirls isn't up for picture... his biggest contender for picture is Babel. As far as directing, I think he should win this year.

I also think Pixar will be dethroned this year by either of the other two nominations, and Dreamgirls will win for anything it's up for (a political ploy to save face for not nominating it as best picture this year).

Yeah I dunno. I think that the art direction is a tossup between Dreamgirls and Pirates...

Anyway - Marty better win. There's no excuse for someone responsible for some of the most timeless movies in our generation being snubbed every year he's up for the win. For the record, I think Aviator deserved the best picture award as well, regardless of Leo. Actually - I think Marty is the only one that can do anything useful with the kid.

What, you were expecting CLEAR favorites?  In a year like THIS!?  I'm not surprised that the nominees aren't exactly stellar this year.  There were a few good or even great ones, but the Academy made some mistakes, and there are a few "meh" movies up for awards.  But come on - this year's pickings are the slimmest in years.
Correction: the coat hanger should be upside down.

It sure seems that way.  I was just looking at his movies and he has got another tag team up later.  Although teddy roosevelt is my fav pres so i will be there. 

Although lets not forget speilberg and catch me if you can.

Well now, hold on. If we assume that every movie's goal is to entertain as many people as possible (And I think that's mostly true) then the movies that are ACCOMPLISHING that goal are the food for the masses. If the people aren't swallowing the movie, then the movie's failing on some level. I'm kinda playing devil's advocate here, but even though (To use the previous example) Inland Empire may be the more ARTISTIC movie and perhaps a DEEPER movie, isn't the BETTER movie the one that the people have embraced?

But then, I suppose better becomes subjective. How about more successful?

No. Stop.

He shouldn't win this year just because he was snubbed. It's just going to create an endless cycle where have to repay Greengrass for not giving him an Oscar. The award is to the most deserving candidate. Of course, the Academy is notorious for doing the opposite.

Nope. Cuaron, Del Toro, Greengrass, Eastwood, and Altman did a better job than Scorsese this year.
