Are we gonna have another Oscar chat next week? Can't wait!!! :D

My money's on The Departed for Best Picture and Director....but as to the rest....I've barely seen any of them so I had to go with my gut.

I'm 100% sure Cars will win Best Feature, though.

I don't get to post here as much as I'd like to, but I'm always in for the Oscars Chat. :) I'll be cheering for Monster House & Little Matchgirl to win their respective awards.

Cool, hope to see you there Mike! :wink:

I read in EW today (yeah, I went and bought it, it was the Oscar issue! :P) that Matchgirl is the odds-on favorite to win!

Pleasepleaseplease.....I so want it to win!!! :D


(If there's anything, ANYTHING....that proves beyond a remote shadow of a doubt the amazing, breathtaking, mind-boggling potential of classic, traditional animation, it's The Little Matchgirl, directed by Roger Allers! :) )

(Also, I'll FINALLY be watching Happy Feet this weekend, my school is showing it....finally get to see it, right before the Oscars! :P :roll: :wink:)

But it's not like we <I>know</I>, Dan. There are an awful lot of surprises on the big night. If I can, I'll be up for the chat.

I have my own choices, though. So here's hoping!

I sent my ballot today, if everything went right.
