Folks - Is anybody aware that it's the Oscars 'tonight' and I for one will be glued to the tv set in the early hours of the morning to see if 'Atonement' can win Best Picture although I fear that 'There Will Be Blood' will sweep the board. Does anyone have a view, for ease of reference here are the nominations for the main categories:

Performance by an actor in a leading role
George Clooney in “Michael Clayton”
Daniel Day-Lewis in “There Will Be Blood”
Johnny Depp in “Sweeney Todd The Demon Barber of Fleet Street”
Tommy Lee Jones in “In the Valley of Elah”

Performance by an actor in a supporting role
Casey Affleck in “The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford”
Javier Bardem in “No Country for Old Men”
Philip Seymour Hoffman in “Charlie Wilson’s War”
Hal Holbrook in “Into the Wild”
Tom Wilkinson in “Michael Clayton”

Performance by an actress in a leading role
Cate Blanchett in “Elizabeth: The Golden Age”
Julie Christie in “Away from Her”
Marion Cotillard in “La Vie en Rose”
Laura Linney in “The Savages”
Ellen Page in “Juno”

Performance by an actress in a supporting role
Cate Blanchett in “I’m Not There”
Ruby Dee in “American Gangster”
Saoirse Ronan in “Atonement”
Amy Ryan in “Gone Baby Gone”
Tilda Swinton in “Michael Clayton”

Achievement in directing
“The Diving Bell and the Butterfly” Julian Schnabel
“Juno” Jason Reitman
“Michael Clayton” Tony Gilroy
“No Country for Old Men” Joel Coen and Ethan Coen
“There Will Be Blood” Paul Thomas Anderson

Best motion picture of the year
“Atonement”
“Juno”
“Michael Clayton”

I haven't seen many of these, but I am desperately hoping those who did the voting will remember how horribly boring 'Michael Clayton' was.

I echo that but don't worry, 'There Will Be Blood' has already won best film

Staines Rebel - I make you right which is probably why Keira Knightly wasn't nominated, she's as flat as a pancake

I think juno may be a supprise i beleive it cost 3 to 4 million dollars and has already grossed around 100 million dollars also any thing with Daniel day- lewis in it always gives 200 percent in his acting, and may be- No country for old men, may be in with a shout. Anyway is there an oscar for the biggest boobs Staines Rebel? laugh

“No Country for Old Men”
“There Will Be Blood”

No Country For Old Men won both best picture and best Director(s) which surprised me, they certainly don't make films like they used to, Casablanca, The African Queen, The Philadelphia Story, It's A Wonderful Life etc!

Blue Fan - Thanks for that, yes 'timeless' sums it up in one and what about the Fred Astaire films such as Top Hat and Follow the Fleet, it's all violence and swearing these days.
