Oscars 2005

Every year since I started this site, I have made “predictions” and announced my hopefuls for the annual Academy Awards — the Oscars. For each of those three years, I had it easy — one of the Lord of the Rings movies was up for awards. This year is different though. This year, I haven’t seen any of the five movies up for best picture. So I have no basis for comparison in any of the main categories.

The only movie I have any loyalty to this year is The Incredibles — I would like it to take the few awards it is up for, but other than that, I’m out of steam for this year. I would like to see some of the nominated films before too long, but I don’t think that will happen in the next 2+ hours.

Feb. 28 9:55 Well the Incredibles won best animated film — as well as the sound editing award which I guess is another score for Pixar. Million Dollar Baby and The Aviator swept most of the rest of the awards, although Jamie Foxx did get props for his portrayal of Ray Charles in Ray.
