    Let's vote. Here are mine:

    Picture: No Country for Old Men

    Director: The Coen Brothers

    Actor: would love to see Johnny Depp win but think it will go to Daniel Day Lewis

    Actress: Should go to Marillon Cotillard but will probably go to Julie Christie

    Supporting Actor: Tough category but I'll go with either Casey Affleck or Javier Barden

    Supporting Actress: Cate Blanchett although I'd love to see Ruby Dee win

    Foreign Film: 12

    Original Screenplay: Michael Clayton

    Adapted Screenplay:Joel Coen and Ethan Coen, 'No Country for Old Men'

    Animated: Ratatouille

    Art Direction: Sweeny Todd

    Best Cinematography: No Country For Old Men



    Now, what I'd really like to know is why actor still comes before actress and supporting actor before supporting actress?

    Fab...it says the server is busy when I try to post and in the end I end up double posting, through no fault of my own. Can someone delete one?

    ^It's happened before. One year, actually Emma Thomson and Holly Hunter were both nominated for both Supporting and Lead roles. Whoopie Goldberg made a crack about how it's no wonder there are no good parts available for actresses because they've taken them all.

    I was surprised with Ruby Dee's nomination. I thought her role was extremely small. Though she did do a good job.

    ^Yes, Sigourney Weaver was also nominated for both categories (Best Actress for "Gorillas in the Mist" and Best Supporting Actress for "Working Girl").

    I think Daniel Day-Lewis will win, and he is astonishing, but I want Johnny to win. Boy do I want Johnny to win.

    Javier Bardem will win, and as for Best Actress? I would LOVE if Cotillard won.

    Ha ha, St. Vagina wasn't nominated. HA HA HA HA

    ^Neither was Brad Shitt . I haven't seen Bardem's performance but I've been hearing a lot about Casey Affleck in The Assassination of Jesse James... He was also excellent in Gone Baby Gone so that might give him more of an edge.

    I just hope the screenwriters' strike will be over by then because I don't want the Oscars to be cancelled too.

    cate blanchett had better win for best supporting actress. and i'm pissed 'i'm not there' is not nominated for best film. actually i'm pissed off in general at how that movie seems to have been overlooked by everyone. it's probably my favourite film of 2007. haven't seen 'no country for old men' yet though.

    I am just thrilled Keira Knightley wasn't nominated. This will give her something else to whine about besides how obsessed the world is with her weight. Also glad Angelina Jolie wasn't nominated. The race would have turned into "her, her, her" and when she didn't win, it would have been more about that than whoever does win.

    I am disappointed Waitress and/or Adrienne Shelly wasn't recognized.

    ^^I thought the same thing when I saw the list: thank god that scrawny cow wasn't nominated. I bet she's STILL on the line bitching out her agent, management and anyone else she can think of to blame.

    But you are hearing her name for the right reasons- her work and the quality of it. She just happens to get loads of good roles, or perhaps she makes them good. I would much rather hear about her for an actual reason than something stupid like giving an interview to whine about being skinny.

    I'm not hearing about her for the right reasons, I am hearing about her because she's in a million different roles. She has to get something right somewhere down the line. I don't find her to be as great as everyone is saying but I don't find her to be bad either.
