    Yeah, the Dreamgirls express had derailed worse than I thought.

    I said it last night - the Academy LOVES Clint.

    The Best Picture race is WIDE open...

    Almost as shocking as Dreamgirls being out of BP is Volver out of Foreign, expecially since Cruz had a lock on a nomination for months.

    Got to go look for the complete list.

    After seeing both, Dreamgirls and Letters from Iwo Jima there is little doubt in my mind that the latter was a better film.

    Can't find the complete list (not up at the Oscar site yet), but Dreamgirls has 8 total noms, Babel 7, The Queen & Pan's Labyrinth 6 apiece.

    OK, the list is up here:

    Ok this sudden Babel love has me a bit uneasy when it comes to Scorsese winning, but I still think he is the front runner.

    The Dreamgirl smackdown is funny. Really funny.

    I don't doubt that's true (haven't had a chance to see LfIJ yet), I just assumed it would knock one of the other contenders out.

    Wow! What happened to "Children of Men"? Almost completely shut-out of the major except for screenplay (which I thought was it's weakest part).

    Looks like another year of me being disappointed during the Oscars (That makes three years straight [​IMG])

    Paul Greengrass gets some love! Thank God! The Babel love is interesting and might spell some trouble for Marty. And, once again, there's the man, Clint in the game....

    Bummed by the CoM's shutout in best director/picture, but I didn't think there was enough support for the little film that could, so not surprised, just disappointed (especially since I don't get all the love LMS is getting, even now, 6 months after its theatrical release).

    I'm surprised that Babel got so many noms, I guess Hollywood isn't tired of the fractured narrative storytelling device yet. I guess it being the "International" version of Crash helped.

    Dreamgirls didn't deserve a BP or BD nom because there were more worthy nominees this year in those categories.

    If Scorsese gets his BD oscar, I think it's going to be for body of work because amongst the 5 nominees this year, I'd rank his effort in "The Departed" only 3rd (Eastwood and Greengrass over Scorsese).

    And this is kind of the part that bothers me. It kind coming almost out of nowhere in the exact same way could doom other films.

    I'm surprised at the surprise over CoM. That film, as good as it was, was never in the race. I think they released it too late.

    And Babel didn't come out of nowhere - it's been a front-runner for months.

    Ok out of nowhere is the wrong way of putting it. Though frontrunner is a strong word, it almost felt as if it was on the side watching whether Dreamgirls, The Departed, or whatever Eastwood film got nominated was going to take it.

    Now all of a sudden it feels like it is in third postion and moving up rapidly. Kind of how Crash picked up a insane amount of momentum from January on.

    Of the films nominated for Best Picture, Babel is the traditional frontrunner by virtue of having the most nominations of the best Picture candidates.

    I disagree, I think it was one of the year's best films, but clearly the academy didn't think so. :p

    I agree Babel felt weakened in December. But then it started picking up awards & noms. It was clear after the GG win last week it was as strong as ever.

    With Dreamgirls out, and The Departed suddenly weakened (only 5 noms, no nod for Jack, DiCaprio nominated for Blood Diamond), I would have to say Babel is the front-runner for BP right now.

    3 noms for Children of Men! Yay!

    No Best Picture for Dreamgirls? Boo!

    So many noms for the overrated Pan's Labyrinth and Babel. Boo!

    Mark instead of Jack for The Departed! Yay!

    No love for Verhoeven (Black Book) in foreign film? Boo!

    Jackie Earl Haley and Eddie Murphy for Supporting Actor! Yay!

    3 noms for Apocalypto! Yay!

    Again, no Best Picture for Dreamgirls?!? Boo!

    Looks like a pretty unpredictable Oscars year in some of these major categories. I thought somebody mentioned this on the previous discussions thread, maybe in the context of one of the other awards shows so far this year--the five nominees for best picture and the five nominees for best cinematography have NO overlap between them. Is this the first time that's ever happened at the Oscars? I'm guessing that it is. I'll have to try and check now.
