    Angels in America f’in rocked my boat, baby. Now maybe I should find a way to watch the second half of it (since I got to see the first half in a movie theater, natch). Al Pacino just smoked. It was so incredible.

    I actually don’t think LOTR was all that (sorry!) but I’m excited to see the attention that Lost in Translation is getting and seriously hope poopy old Cold Mountain and The Last Samurai get ICED ICED BABY! by the Academy.

    I guess I’m going to have to get in the game and do my predictions of what will make the Oscars lists … when is that coming out, anyway?

    I have a sentimental attachment to all of the LOTR movies, as well as loving them for their great-big-epic attractions. Lost in Translation and I have had something of a rocky relationship, and I think I should have made an effort to see it a second time. I’ve been dying to see Angels in America, but I don’t have HBO; I assume it will eventually make its way to video/DVD, but not for a while. *sigh* One of my favorite moments of the night was the absolute lack of suspense over whether The Last Samurai would walk away with anything. It seemed like a gesture of kindness that it was even nominated – “Oh, well, they tried to make a big serious award-garnering movie, let’s give them a nomination just for the effort.”

    I *think* Oscar noms come out this Tuesday, but I’ll have to double check. Eeee!!! I’m excited.

    I’m okay with the Cold Mountain losses — I mean, they had to give the LOTR people *something*, and they’ve really been cheated the last couple of years — but I am *very* disappointed about the “Goodbye Lenin” loss. There is no way you can tell me that wasn’t completely political. Grr.

    You’re right, I can’t – particularly since I haven’t seen any of the movies. 😦 There’s still the Oscars, though!
