http://www.imdb.com/features/rto/2009/oscars

most, i.e. 13, nominations for The Curious Case of Benjamin Button

Winslet as best actress and Ledger as best supporting actor seem very likely

don't know about best male actor, don't see BP taking it, maybe Rourke

again a German movie nominated as best foreign film: Der Baader Meinhof Komplex is about the left extreme terrorism group RAF, which commited several kidnappings and bomb attacks in the seventies
not a bad movie, but not Oscar-worthy imo, would be surprised if they win it

Re: Oscars 2009

Pitt is biggest underdog at gamebookers at 15. Rourke is the fave and I hope he wins it or Pitt.

Re: Oscars 2009

I don't think Pitt will ever win the Oscar.
Slumdog millionaire all the way!

Anybody seen this?
I'm really curious which perspective they made it from.

Re: Oscars 2009

hopefully Der Baader Meinhof Komplex wins it. I played a small role in that movie.

Re: Oscars 2009

Pitt won't get for Best Actor IMO, his performance isn't worthy of an Oscar. I think Rourke will get it.

Button could get Best Motion Picture though, and I would like to see David Fincher getting one for Best Director.

Re: Oscars 2009

the BAFTA Awards (British equivalent to Oscars) will be announced today and can maybe show some more tendencies for the Oscars:

Re: Oscars 2009

BAFTA winners:
Slumdog Millionaire
Mickey Rourke
Kate Winslet
Heath Ledger
Penelope Cruz

same winners as at the Globes apart from Cruz for Supporting Actress,
however Winslet is not nominated for Best Supporting Actress at the Academy Awards, which raises the latina's chances a lot, wouldn't be surprising if these 5 will grab the Oscars as well

best foreign film should be between the Israeli and the French one

Re: Oscars 2009

Pitt wishes he'd win the Oscar. So too Rourke.

Ledger FTW
