Question Oscar Nominations 2008

I don't know if people are really into films and awards here on MTF but I will give it a go. I mad that George Clooney actually got nominated whilst great films like American Gangster got snubbed. I am happy that the overated ones: Brad Pitt and Keira Knightley got snubbed I hope Johnny Depp wins at last.

J.Depp and Tommy Lee Jones are fantastic actors

Lee Jones has been one of my faves for years, i think he won it before from the Fugutive .. but Gl again anyway

i'm not fussed about the oscars, but i love hearing the old legends doing well instead of these Johnny come lately's who you've never heard of

I didn't see the other actresses so I can't compare. I just know she's incredible in "la mome" (la vie en rose). Great actress.

She did a great job in La Vie En Rose, it was a great movie as well.

My movie knowledge isn't too great [I have a tendency to like crappy movies ], but I have to say I really enjoyed Atonement, every aspect of it was simply great.

You're right. The rule does not apply to all cases though.
Rare exceptions (very rare indeed, and for supporting roles):

Catherine Zeta-Jones won the 'Best Supporting Actress' Academy Award for her role in "Chicago".
Also, back in 1961 (or in 1962?) Rita Moreno won the 'Best Supporting Actress' Academy Award for her role in "West Side Story".

"The Simpsons - Movie" not nominated. Most famous animated series in the world and one of the most successful series in general. When do these idiots think of honoring the makers?

I've given up on the Oscars and their stupid decisions. This year is nearly as worse as not giving Clark Gable the oscar in 1940.

Johnny Deep deserves the Oscars in general. One of m fave actors.

I agree Brad and Keira are damn overrated.

"La mome" and "La vie en rose" are the same movie. "La mome" is the French name of the movie.

And Atonement was good indeed.
