    This is Hoffman's to lose. If he doesn't win, I'll be really surprised. If he doesn't win, though, I look for it to go to either Strathairn or Ledger (though I'd love to see it go to either Ledger or Phoenix).

    I'm thinking this will go to Giamatti to make up for not even nominating him for Sideways last year. Personally, I think it should go to Gyllenhaal, though I've heard Dillon is also very good.

    PERFORMANCE BY AN ACTRESS IN A LEADING ROLE

    I think this'll be a two-woman race between Huffman and Witherspoon. I give the edge to Witherspoon, though I wouldn't be surprised at all to see Huffman take it.

    PERFORMANCE BY AN ACTRESS IN A SUPPORTING ROLE
    Amy Adams - JUNEBUG
    Catherine Keener - CAPOTE
    Frances McDormand - NORTH COUNTRY
    Rachel Weisz - THE CONSTANT GARDENER
    Michelle Williams - BROKEBACK MOUNTAIN
    I just saw The Constant Gardener last night on DVD, and Weisz was terrific. I look for her to win this, with Adams as a dark horse.

    If Ang Lee doesn't win this for Brokeback Mountain, I'll be stunned.

    "In the Deep" - CRASH
    "It's Hard Out Here for a Pimp" - HUSTLE & FLOW

    Since Emmylou Harris' song from Brokeback Mountain wasn't even nominated, we could actually see Dolly Parton winning an Oscar for her song from Transamerica. Dolly Parton winning an Oscar? Who would have thunk it?

    BEST MOTION PICTURE OF THE YEAR

    Like Ang Lee for Best Director, if Brokeback Mountain doesn't win here, I'll be stunned.

    If George Clooney wins an Oscar, this'll be his best chance.

    Joan Allen should have been nominated for The Upside of Anger.

    What a mixed bag-o-nuts this collection is! I can't even pretend to guess who would win this and I saw every one of these films.

    Congratulations to George Clooney on his three nominations. I am glad Terrence Howard got the nod instead of that jerk Russell Crowe. I haven't seen "Munich", but I agree with the Academy in that while “Walk the Line” is good, it isn’t great.

    I'm very pleased that Gyllenhaal was nominated.
    It seems as though Ledger is getting all the plaudits for his performance but from what I've heard Gyllenhaal also does a great job.

    I'd love to see Huffman win for TransAmerica and think Knightley is the outsider in that cateogry.

    I LOVE Rachel Weisz so I very much hope that she makes the hatrick in the supporting actress category.

    I'm a big fan of hers, too, Fluff. I'd love to see her win the Oscar then go on to win the BAFTA as well.

    I may actually skip the Academy Awards this year, though the fashion part is always fun. I've seen only one movie on that entire list--Star Wars--and doubt I'll get to the other 2 or 3 that'd I'd want to see before the ceremony. It's such a change for me: it used to be I'd seen 50-80% of the movies nominated in the big categories. For the past several years, I just don't go to the theater.

    But, I do think Felicity Huffman will win. From what I read in reviews she did a great job in Transamerica, she gave a really great interview about it on FreshAir and, just going by the last several years' winners, if you do a big physical transformation along with good acting (Charlize Theron, Nicole Kidman, Hillary Swank) you're a shoo-in.

    Forgot to mention, I don't think he'll win for a second, but I love that Terrence Howard was nominated.

    I would like to see Felicity Huffman win too, but I have a feeling Reese is going to win. It seems to be her year. So far, in the head-to head competitions, Reese has won eight out of ten times. Quite a few under dogs have triumphed over heavy favorites, so there's hope.

    I can’t put my finger on it, but something about Reese bugs me. I think in about two years, her husband is going to pull a Chad Lowe.
