    Couple of surprises, I thought. One was that LOTR didn't get nominated for Best Cinematography. The other was that the Matrix sequels didn't get nominated for either sound or visual effects.

    Why didn't City of God get nominated for best picture!

    One of the best films I have ever seen (not as good as LOTR though!)

    I hope Lost in Translation wins best picture - that would be really great

    LOTR overhyped a little bit with the 3rd film

    Hi,

    Well, this is what I think will win, from this years list of nominees.

    ACTOR IN A LEADING ROLE
    Bill Murray - LOST IN TRANSLATION

    ACTOR IN A SUPPORTING ROLE
    Benicio Del Toro - 21 GRAMS

    ACTRESS IN A LEADING ROLE
    Keisha Castle-Hughes - WHALE RIDER
    (N.B. Is she the youngest nominee ever, because I thought Anna Paquin was, when she won her award for "The Piano" back in 1993?)

    ACTRESS IN A SUPPORTING ROLE
    Holly Hunter - THIRTEEN

    ANIMATED FEATURE FILM
    THE TRIPLETS OF BELLEVILLE / BELLEVILLE RENDEZ-VOUS

    ART DIRECTION
    GIRL WITH A PEARL EARRING

    CINEMATOGRAPHY
    CITY OF GOD

    COSTUME DESIGN
    THE LORD OF THE RINGS: THE RETURN OF THE KING

    DIRECTOR
    THE LORD OF THE RINGS: THE RETURN OF THE KING
    (It may not be the best directed film in the category for 2003/2004, but what Peter Jackson has done, has to be given some kind of cinematic credence!)

    DOCUMENTARY FEATURE
    CAPTURING THE FRIEDMANS

    DOCUMENTARY SHORT SUBJECT
    FERRY TALES

    FILM EDITING
    CITY OF GOD

    FOREIGN LANGUAGE FILM
    THE BARBARIAN INVASIONS

    MAKEUP
    THE LORD OF THE RINGS: THE RETURN OF THE KING

    MUSIC (SCORE)
    THE LORD OF THE RINGS: THE RETURN OF THE KING

    MUSIC (SONG)
    "The Triplets of Belleville" - THE TRIPLETS OF BELLEVILLE

    BEST PICTURE
    THE LORD OF THE RINGS: THE RETURN OF THE KING

    SHORT FILM (ANIMATED)
    DESTINO

    SHORT FILM (LIVE ACTION)
    DIE ROTE JACKE (The Red Jacket)

    SOUND
    THE LORD OF THE RINGS: THE RETURN OF THE KING

    SOUND EDITING
    PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN: THE CURSE OF THE BLACK PEARL

    VISUAL EFFECTS
    THE LORD OF THE RINGS: THE RETURN OF THE KING

    WRITING (ADAPTED SCREENPLAY)
    MYSTIC RIVER

    WRITING (ORIGINAL SCREENPLAY)
    LOST IN TRANSLATION

    What do the rest of you think? I haven't seen a lot of these films, so my choices have been made on my own knowledge of the films themselves, general reviews (both from critics, the internet, and the public), and what I think the Academy will favour.
