Oscar™ noms came out today!

I'll only list the movies I've either seen or want to see. If you don't see a category here, I'm not interested in any of the nominees.

Best Picture
Lost In Translation

LOTR: ROTK had better win. The other two deserved to win too, and this is the Academy's last chance.

Best Actor
Johnny Depp, Pirates of the Caribbean
Bill Murray, Lost In Translation

Looks like Johnny and Bill are going to have another showdown. Bill won the Golden Globe™, so Johnny should get the Oscar™.

Speaking of the acting awards, ROTK wasn't nominated for any! C'mon! They all should have been nominated.

Best Director
Peter Jackson, LOTR: ROTK
Sofia Coppola, Lost In Translation

PJ all the way!

Best Adapted Screenplay
Fran Walsh, Philippa Boyens, and Peter Jackson, LOTR: ROTK

I think the other noms can safely stay home that night.

Best Original Screenplay
Andrew Stanton, Bob Peterson, and David Reynolds, Finding Nemo
Sofia Coppola, Lost In Translation

This is a hard one. I haven't seen Lost, but I heard it's well-written, and I know Nemo is. Can I hope for a tie?

Best Animated Feature Film
Finding Nemo

Fish rule!

Best Art Direction
Girl With A Pearl Earring

I've heard Girl is a very pretty movie. I have the book and haven't read it yet -- I'm waiting to see the movie first. I don't think it's in wide release yet. Anyway, no movie can be better eye candy than ROTK.

Best Cinematography
Girl With A Pearl Earring

ROTK wasn't even nominated! WTF?! Oh well.

Best Sound Mixing
Pirates of the Caribbean

I'm not sure what this category is for, except that it has something to do with the sound. Can I hope for another tie?

Best Sound Editing
Finding Nemo
Pirates of the Caribbean

What, no ROTK nom for this one? Anyway, I want another tie. Does the Academy even allow ties anymore?

Best Original Score
Thomas Newman, Finding Nemo
Howard Shore, LOTR: ROTK

ROTK all the way. I love the music in that. I can't recall any of the music from Nemo, so it must not have been interesting enough for me to notice. Or maybe it's just because that I have the ROTK soundtrack and not the Nemo soundtrack.

Best Original Song
Fran Walsh, Howard Shore, and Annie Lennox, "Into The West" from LOTR: ROTK

Can you tell I want ROTK to sweep?

Best Costume
Girl With A Pearl Earring

The only pic I've seen of the costumes from Girl is Scarlett Johansson's costume, which is just like the one in the painting the movie's based on. So, just going by that, I think ROTK is more deserving.

Best Film Editing

Yes, it's 3+ hours, but it could easily have been 5. Therefore, it deserves this one.

Best Makeup
Pirates of the Caribbean

If not a tie for this one, then ROTK.

Best Visual Effects
Pirates of the Caribbean

Ooo, toughie. But I'll have to go with ROTK.

Can't wait till February 29th.
