Oscars Wishlist

Wednesday, January 26, 2005
Oscar nominations are out. I can't be bothered going through who will probably win this year, but I can tell you who I'd prefer to see win: Finding Neverland for Best Film; Johnny Depp as Actor in a Lead Role; Charlie Kaufman, Michel Gondry, Pierre Bismuth for the Best Original Screeplay for Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind; David Magee for Adapted Script for Finding Neverland; Xiaoding Zhao for Best Cinematography for Shi mian mai fu/House of Flying Daggers; The Incredibles team for Sound Editing, Achievement in Sound and Best Animated Film; and Spider-Man 2 for Visual Effects.

I don't expect Finding Neverland will actually pick up any awards, but only because The Aviator and Leo seem to have charmed the voters. Of course, I should point out I haven't seen either The Aviator or Ray so a lot of these choices are based on a very, very enjoyable viewing experience with Finding Neverland and The Incredibles being very, very well crafted, albeit not quite as aimed at kids as one might have expected.
