Could “Skyfall” actually get a Best Picture nomination???? Really?? Please, yes!!!

Rumors are swirling the internet that the latest 007 flick, “Skyfall”, just might get a chance of making the Oscars. The James Bond franchise has never made the Oscars before, and this just might be the first time for them. I do think “Skyfall” is an incredible film, and when the film got over with, my first thought was, “It just might make the Oscars but it probably won’t.”. If it does get the Best Picture nomination, that would be shocking… but if it gets the Best Picture snub, then there is possibility for other nominations. For example, like the article said, Adele could probably get the nomination for the theme song and Javier Bardem could get nominated for his role as the villain in it.

I really hope, “Skyfall”, gets the nomination. The Oscars has never been friendly with violent movies, but it don’t hurt for a change. A little variety in the Oscars, would be good. I’m getting real tired of all these feel good drama movies getting the Oscars spotlight. We will know the nominations real soon. Can’t wait!

Could JJ Abrams “Star Trek” actually win “Best Picture”???

Look like the Star Trek franchise can actually land their first Oscar win for “Best Picture”, because there is a huge buzz going around the movie sites online, that the film could get a nomination. I agree, it deserves a nomination ’cause the film is a beautiful film. I love it to death. Could the Star Trek franchise actually be lucky to win one? None of the Star Trek movies from the past never got a nomination before.

If JJ’s “Star Trek” actually gets the win for “Best Picture” in 2010, that would be very surprising. I have a feeling that the Best Picture win will either go to “Precious”, “Inglourious Basterds” or “Avatar”…but “Star Trek” can actually get it.

It would be nice if something different wins the Oscars. “Star Trek” is a mix of action and sci fi, the new film. I would love it if it got the win for “Best Picture”, I don’t see it happening.

Report: Oscar nominations for Best Picture is now up to 10 instead of the usual 5…

What an interesting move! Instead of the usual 5 of “Best Picture” nominations every year, the Academy has now changed it up to 10 Oscar nominations for “Best Picture”. Wow, that’s a lot!

Variety Reports:

It’s a good idea, I like it! It gives more room for other great movies to get nominated that didn’t get a chance!

Thought: The 5 Best and Worst “Best Picture” Winners of the Oscars…

Not every Oscar “Best Picture” winner is a great movie, to me it’s just an opinion that the Academy is entitled to. They have gave “Best Picture” winners to some movies I didn’t really care for.

Yeah, I know, another Oscar post, but hey, I love movies, I am a huge movie buff and addicted to them. I watch the Oscars every year and it’s my favorite award show.

In my opinion, these are just my opinions now, these are some “best” and “worst” “Best Picture” winners for the Oscars. I feel that there are some that are pretty undeserving. I’ll name 5 each.

Top 5 favorite “Best Picture” winners, the films that I love:

1. Rocky

(It should be no surprise to you that I would name this first)

2. The West Side Story

(Believe it or not, it’s my favorite musical movie ever, this film is such a masterpiece, I love it to death. I own the DVD set and it’s one film I’ll never get tired of watching)

3. Schindler’s List

(It’s Steven Spielberg’s best film ever made, in my opinion)

4. One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest

(Another one of my favorite films ever made and another one I’ll never get tired of watching!!! Another masterpiece!)

5. Forrest Gump

(Can’t leave this one off the list, a classic flick that is well deserving of the Oscar history)

Top 5 worst “Best Picture” winner choices, films I think are undeserving:

1. Titanic

(Why? Why? Why? This film is overrated, too long, and we’ve seen enough of these sad stories. I didn’t find the film all that sad, it was all silly and goofy. BOOO at the Academy for giving this the Best Picture win!)

2. American Beauty

(Another film that is a crapfest. I like Kevin Spacey and all but he’s starred in way better films than this piece of shit. I never really cared for this film.)

3. Chicago

(It was entertaining sometimes, but is it really Oscar worthy? Nah.)

4. The Departed

(I shook my head when they gave this movie the win that year, then I saw the movie, and thought, what? What the hell did I just see? The film was okay but nothing all that amazing.)

5. No Country, For Old Men

(It’s a pretty good film, but it’s fucked up ending is what got me thinking why they think this is Oscar worthy, I wasn’t rooting for the Coen Bros. to get the win on this last year, I actually was rooting for “There Will Be Blood” to get the win but it got robbed)

Yep, so there you have it.

“Slumdog Millionaire” has better get the win for BEST PICTURE this year, if any of the other films win it instead, I think I’m done watching the Oscars. I’ll watch the Oscars this year on Feb. 22nd to see what happens. I truly enjoyed “Slumdog” and it really is deserving.

My final Oscar award nomination for “Best Picture” prediction here…

I did this before in the past, but this is my final prediction of what will get nominated for the Oscars in Feb. of 2009 for “Best Picture”. Usually there are 5 films nominated every year for the “Best Picture” award and this is my pick.

I have only seen a few of these movies, but the ones I haven’t seen yet, I know will get nominated due to the hype…

Here’s my final predictions below:

“The Dark Knight”

“Wall-E”

“Frost/Nixon”

“Changeling”

“Milk”

Everybody knows why “The Dark Knight” will definitely get in. “Wall-E” will definitely get it no matter what happens. “Frost/Nixon” will definitely get in because of Ron Howard. “Changeling” will get it no matter what happens ’cause it rings Clint Eastwood everytime he’s at the Oscars every year with a new film. “Milk” starring Sean Penn will get it because they know that the film about a real life gay politician will create controversy in the media if it got nominated.

Out of this list, I only saw “The Dark Knight” and “Changeling” but the other three films looks really great. Mark my words, these five films will get the nomination. I don’t think films like “The Wrestler”, “Valkyrie” or “Benjamin Button” will get nominated at all.

I would be very surprised if “Valkyrie” got nominated for Best Picture all of a sudden, since it’s a WW II Nazi flick about Hitler, and it would be a shock if “Valkyrie” got the nomination and if it even wins. I would even be surprised if Tom Cruise wins for Best Male In a Leading Role nomination for “Valkyrie” as well. While “Valkyrie” does look really good, I don’t think it’s Oscar worthy.

Eastwood’s other film “Gran Torino” looks amazing as well, but I think “Changeling” will get the nomination instead of “Gran Torino”.

We’ll just wait until the official Oscar nominations come out to the press, to see if I got my predictions right.
