The Oscars

My completely unimportant opinion of who/what I would like to win on the list of official Oscar Nominations.

I guess my New York visit helped in a way that I have seen all nominated films except Letters From Iwo Jima. And in the actor categories I haven’t seen Dreamgirls and Half Nelson (yet).

1. Best Picture: “Babel,” “The Departed,” “Letters From Iwo Jima,” “Little Miss Sunshine,” “The Queen.”

2. Actor: Leonardo DiCaprio, “Blood Diamond”; Ryan Gosling, “Half Nelson”; Peter O’Toole, “Venus”; Will Smith, “The Pursuit of Happyness”; Forest Whitaker, “The Last King of Scotland.”

3. Actress: Penelope Cruz, “Volver”; Judi Dench, “Notes on a Scandal”; Helen Mirren, “The Queen”; Meryl Streep, “The Devil Wears Prada”; Kate Winslet, “Little Children.”

4. Supporting Actor: Alan Arkin, “Little Miss Sunshine”; Jackie Earle Haley, “Little Children”; Djimon Hounsou, “Blood Diamond“; Eddie Murphy, “Dreamgirls”; Mark Wahlberg, “The Departed.”

5. Supporting Actress: Adriana Barraza, “Babel”; Cate Blanchett, “Notes on a Scandal”; Abigail Breslin, “Little Miss Sunshine”; Jennifer Hudson, “Dreamgirls”; Rinko Kikuchi, “Babel.”

What I am very very happy about is that the Danish film After the Wedding is nominated in the category for Best Foreign Film. I hope it wins, it is a fantastic film.
