our film reviews: from armchair viewing to the festival front row

26 February 2007

[Reel-Comments] From Oscar, With Love...

Told you so. Well, sorta.

Best picture - Babel
(someone else said it was too like last year's winner, Crash. Point taken.)
Actual winner - The Departed

Best director - Martin Scorsese, The Departed (yeah!)

Best actor - Forest Whitaker, The Last King of Scotland (yeah!)

Best actress - Helen Mirren, The Queen (yeah!)

Best supporting actress - Abigail Breslin, Little Miss Sunshine
(shoulda - who wouldn't want her to win over Jennifer Hudson in a Motown schmuck-up?)
Actual winner - Jennifer Hudson, Dreamgirls

Best supporting actor - Jackie Earle Haley, Little Children
(shoulda - one of the finest performances and one of the best character actors of hie generation. Think Kevin Spacey circa The Usual Suspects... but I think the Academy honouring a man playing a paedo is a little too liberal even for Californians...)
Actual winner - Alan Arkin, Little Miss Sunshine
