Oscar Nominations

Post by Phosphor » Tue Jan 27, 2004 6:26 pm

The Oscar nominations list has been released (http://www.cbc.ca/news/background/oscars/) and Return Of The King has scored the most nominations (11 in all) including Best Picture.
I can't help but be disappointed that no acting nominations have been made towards any of the cast. I think Sean Astin is more than deserving of a Supporting Actor nomination.

I can't get excited about any of the other movies listed, but it might prove an interesting list for discussion, hence my posting this.

Eh, who is that and whom did he play? :?

The righteous shall perish
At the hands of the wicked
And all the world shall tremble

Not to forget Mr Smith in Jeremiah...
(though that's a tv-series and nothing to get an Oscar for)

Do you think Lord of the Rings will actually win best picture, I mean when was the last time a fantasy movie won?

i think it will, i think they already planned at the first movie (fellowship) to give them their oscars at the third 'magnum opus', also considering that alst two didn't win ost big ones, mainly special effects and such.
Though i must say it doesnt rightly follow the books, it still has to be made a movie, the trilogy that is... but that's a whole other thread

It's unlikely, but I hope Keisha Castle Hughes wins best actress

Bernard Hill should win, damnit! Not even Tolkien wrote Theoden as well as Bernard played him!

Hill was really great and did indeed give a tertiary character a lot more power. Of course, part of that is thanks to Boyens and Walsh and their screenplay (which is nominated).
But the fact that ROTK is completely shut out of any acting awards is a bit odd.
But if it wins best picture, that'll be a great victory.
