What are you doing March 26th? You better turn to ABC because
The Oscars are starting!
The 23 categories are going to be announced and the winners/losers
will finally know where they stand. Some of the most well-known
categories include: Best Picture, Best Actor In A Lead Role,
Best Actor In A Supporting Role, Best Actress In A Lead Role,
Best Actress In A Supporting Role, Best Directing, and Most Original
One movie that was overlooked in every category, that I think
deserved nomination for Best Picture, Best Actor In A Lead Role,
and Best Actor In A Supporting Role was "Man On The Moon".
I think that this movie was fantastic. Jim Carey as Andy Kaufman
and Danny DeVito as George Shapiro, Andy's manager, both should
be recognized for their great roles.
The Best Picture movies that made it onto the ballet sheet
are American Beauty, The Cider House Rules, The Green Mile, The
Insider, and The Sixth Sense. Out of the five movies I've only
seen The Sixth Sense, which I loved. I think that Haley Joel
Osment, who plays Cole Sear, a young boy who's extremely disturbed
because he sees ghosts, should get The Best Actor In A Supporting
The Best Actors are Russell Crowe for The Insider, Richard
Farnsworth for The Straight Story, Sean Penn for Sweet And Low
Down, Kevin Spacey for American Beauty and Denzel Washington
for The Hurricane. Now I haven't seen any of these movies but
from what I've heard Kevin Spacey and Denzel Washington did excellent
jobs and I'd say are probably the top competitors.
For Best Actress I'd say the top people are either Annette
Bening for American Beauty or Hilary Swank for Boys Don't Cry.
The other Best Actresses are Janet McTeer for Tumbleweeds, Julianne
Moore The End Of The Affair for, and Meryl Streep for Music Of
My Heart. From everything I've read and heard I know that the
movie Boys Don't Cry was beautifully done and Hilary Swank did
an excellent job.
The movie American
Beauty got the most nominations and I'm guessing it was very
deserving of them all. The movie stars Kevin Spacey as an "unremarkable
man trapped in a suburban wasteland", Annette Bening as
his "driven, real estate-selling wife". This is one
of the only movies I've been waiting so long to see.
There are only a few days until we get to find out who wins
and who loses. I'm pretty sure that American Beauty will take
home the Oscars for Best Picture, Best Actor, Best Actress, and
Best Directing. I think that the Most Original Screenplay will
defiantly go to Being John Malkovich. That movie is the most
far-out one that I've heard of in a long time.
