Haven't seen just about everything in that list, except I thought Cars was better than Happy Feet.

Is anyone really surprised? Probably the most predictable Oscar ceremony in recent history. Another celebration of mediocrity.

I'm just thankful Babel won nothing of significance.

Yip here here.
Funny isnt it that The Departed wins best film and Infernal Affairs the infinitely superior film on which it was based didnt even get nominated in 2003 for best foreign film .

In the other Oscars thread, i predicted all the awards of any real significance anyways. That is:

Best picture: The Departed
Best director: Martin Scorsese, The Departed
Best actor: Forest Whitaker, The Last King of Scotland
Best actress: Helen Mirren, The Queen
Best supporting actress: Jennifer Hudson, Dreamgirls
Best supporting actor: Alan Arkin, Little Miss Sunshine

No real suprises in it really to be honest!

Worrying trend appearing
In 4 of ther last 5 years a major acting award has gone to a musical.
2003:Catherine Zeta Jones, Chicago
2005:Jamie Foxx,Ray
2006:Reese Witherspoon,Walk the Line
2007:Jennifer Hudson,Dreamgirls
This years awards were one of the weakest ever,nothing outstanding.
Have a look at 1994's Best Picture category
Forest Gump
Pulp Fiction
Shawshank Redemption
Quiz Show
Four weddings and a funeral
All these 5 are arguably better than any winner since.

Yep.. as i've said numerous times before, bio-pics and / or musicals have been cleaning up at The Oscars.

And it's a trend i don't expect to change anytime soon.

Well, I wouldn't rate Four Weddings and Forrest Gump as great films.
I'd say American Beauty in 1999 is better than those two.
Although that is an exception. A lot of Best Picture winners in the last ten years have been undeserving.
Crash? A Beautiful Mind?

Thought Crash was very good,didnt like American Beauty at all though I agree most of the winners in the last few years were undeserving
Chicago,Shakespeare in Love,Titanic ,all pretty poor films .

back to infernal affairs again...the direction was not half as good as the departed neither was the acting. Andy Lau? come on, he has 2 acting faces. Tony leung is good though.
In relation to scorcese getting the oscar, i guess it's the culmination of his work and not especially the departed. He should have gotten it 30 years ago and a number of times since, so maybe they're thinking this is the best film he's done in a long time, let's give it now before he dies.

p.s i thought the departed was great...

Caught the list on Ceefax(!) and found it terribly dull. Not one surprise amongst them.

'The Departed' is entertaining, but I wouldn't have thought it "Best Picture" material. It's worth winning though if it kept "Babel" from the golden trophy.

Very glad that I didn't have the opportunity to waste my time watching this. Dull.

I cant believe the guy from Little Miss sunshine won an Oscar. Was his role that demanding!I didnt think twice about him after watching the film. I dont understand why Little Miss sunshine got nominated for best film and Pans Labryinth didnt.
