I'm hoping Sandra Bullock gets Best Actress. Haven't seen The Blind Side, but looks like it would be good.

Going by it's success you must be one of the few who hasn't!

Seriously though, despite some opposition to her winning from other areas, she would appear to be the current front runner.

I thought blind side deserved to be there...but inglorious basterds did not. I liked d9 as well but didnt think it was better than Star Trek. Havent seen avatar yet but from everything I heard, it is visually heart stopping but really lacked any good story. I know a lot of you say the same about Star Trek but I dont agree with that at all. I thought the story line held up well and was a good one. Guess I just look at things differently.

I expected it to get nominated but never expected it to win. I think they just refuse to put Star Trek in a best picture category.

Agreed on Quentin and Inglorious Basterds.

After I saw it a couple weeks back I thought it was fine and very typically a Tarantino film but I can't really point to anything in it that makes it particularly Oscar-worthy as far as I can see. IMO only.

It doesn't really matter - just one I don't agree should be there.

I'm a big Tarantino fan but I thought Basterds was overrated. I was surprised it was so popular. I guess people want brutally kill Nazis vicariously. Sadistic for some, cathartic for others. Alot of people feel it's his best work but I don't think it compares favorably to Pulp Fiction or especially Kill Bill!

I haven't seen it, but it really doesn't look appealing at all to me. I enjoy Pulp Fiction and doubt he'll ever top it.

Like I indicated, I think Kill Bill's his best work. And I like most of his stuff.

The first scene in Basterds is beautifully shot and isone of his best, IMHO, but the film as a whole...I prefer his first, Resevoir Dogs.

I haven't seen Basterds yet, but it's in my Netflix list and should be here soon. His movies are mostly good, although I hate From Dusk 'til Dawn. I love Reservoir Dogs, Pulp Fiction, The Kill Bill Movies and Grindhouse though.

When I think of Tarantino films I tend to think only of the ones he directed, which Dusk til Dawn is not one of. I don't hate FDTD, though. My god man! it's got Salma Hayek as a stripper doing an exotic snake dance in a thong!That pretty much makes it my favorite movie that I don't own! But seriously, from Resevoir Dogs thru Kill Bill his film making got better and better then with Grindhouse, which he only directed half of he seemed to've vectored. I still like his work but for me he peaked with Kill Bill.
