2005 Academy Awards

Do they broadcast the adult film awards?

The Oscars are upon us again and since a person at work and one of my friends are both obsessed with these awards, I have a list of the nominations to share. The point of this is for your to post your bet on who will win each category and why… even better: say who wasn’t nominated and why they should be.

  1. Which of these movies are great to watch? I’m less interested in the art of movie making, and more interested in entertaining movies.

    So for the sake of argument, let’s say I haven’t seen any of these movies. What are your top 3 to watch and why?

  2. I haven’t seen any of the movies either, so I’m picking solely based on politics…

    Best Actor: Jamie Foxx (Foxx isn’t his real name; I call it the Denzel factor)

    Best Actress: Annette bening (only because she lost last time to Swank, and they’ll want to make it up to her)

    Best Director: Clint “I’m not as talented at Scorcese” Eastwood (because it’s been 12 years since his last Oscar)

    Best Sup. Actor: NOT Alan Alda (because he’s playing a Republican on “The West Wing”) PSYCHE

    Best Sup. Actress: That lady from Hotel Rooo Wand (because they’ll screw Don Cheadle, and want to make it up to him)

    Best Movie: Darkhorse is Sideways, but it’ll be Mil$ Baby, because the academy always screws Scorcese.

  3. Thad, I liked Aviator and I would like to see Ray and $M Baby… because I think they will be entertaining in each their own way.

    Want to see sideways too because it’s about drunk men dealing with their woman troubles.

    Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind and Collateral sucked. Haven’t seen the rest.

  4. oh denmark. To be or not to be…
    Eternal Sunshine was a very entertaining story. One of the best of the year. Right there with Napolean Dynamite. That movie had some sweet tunes, beautiful Ligers, and a host of some awesome bo staffing skills. Lucky!

    [name], don’t be jealous that I’ve been chatting online with babes all day. Besides, we both know that I’m training to be a cage fighter.

  5. D, to say that Collateral sucked is pretty harsh. Foxx was pretty good in it, I’m not going to go out and buy it, but it didn’t exactly suck.

    Movie I did watch recently that didn’t suck is “The Last Samari”. A year or two old, pretty much a cross between “Braveheart” and “Dances with Wolves”. Braveheart is great, and a movie like “Dances with Wolves” but without Costner is a plus in my book.

    I’ve heard that wine stores are selling Pinot Noir like mad because of “Sideways”.
