This one I don't really have any idea--I haven't seen any of the pics and I've seen a lot of different pics among various predictions.  Normally, I might pick Marisa Tomei because I think Mickey Rourke is going to win Best Actor, but she already has one (although some think she didn't really win, that Jack Palance read the wrong name--not true  ;D)

I have no clue, either. I picked the woman in Benjamin Button because I've seen that movie (the only one of the bunch).

Marisa Tomei was superb in My Cousin Vinny. One of my all time favorite movies. Judge Haller played by Fred Gwynne reminds me of one of my judges. (Giggle) and Austin Gibbons who played the public defender -- whadda hoot!

Marisa played the part of a lifetime -- I would love to see her win another Oscar -- ONLY if she wins it fair and square -- no more Jack Palance rumors to haunt her!

Fred Gwynne as in Herman Munster?. . . . .hmmm. Another movie I haven't seen.

I should probably just stay out of these threads! :)

I like Marisa Tomei but Doubt was a very good movie, I think..I don't know.... ???
Doubt was an outstanding movie and if the supporting actress (whoever she is) wins, will deserve the Oscar. But I kinda feel like that about all of the nominees. There has to be a reason to get the nomination -- unless you are channeling Jack Palance.

Viola Davis or Amy Adams? Viola Davis was in the movie for maybe fifteen minutes top. Because both were nominated for the same move, they might end up canceling each other out for the award.

My vote went to Penelope Cruz. I don't think she'll win, but I thought she made that movie.

I'm not gonna vote on this one because I have no idea what those are and have never heard of them. I've been stuck in this board for too long..  ;D

I was pleasantly surprised by her win. Did anyone manage to understand what she said in Spanish during her acceptance speech? She spoke to fast for anyone at the party that I attended to translate.

I was happily surprised by the win of Penelope too.

She said that she was very happy and that she dedicated her award to spain and everybody back home,and Thank you. I can't remember the words exactly, but that was the main idea,
let me check if I can find the video and I'll translate it exactly ;)

OK, found it, here's the translation:
"Everyone in Spain who is sharing this moment with me right now and feel that this is also theirs, I dedicate it to you, and to all the actors of my country. Than you so much"
;D

I loved her vintage gown -- she looked exquisite and her acceptance speech was great!  Good Job Penelope!
