The nominees for best picture are "The Departed," "Babel," "Letters From Iwo Jima," "Little Miss Sunshine" and "The Queen."

My pick from this lot...Little Miss Sunshine.

I suppose Children of Men came out too late to be a contender this year..

I enjoyed The Departed more than Little Miss Sunshine. I have not seen the other three but want to see both Clint Eastwood movies (Letters from Iwo Jima on this list) and The Queen.

I've only seen The Departed which i liked.

I want to see Letters from Iwo Jima.

I've heard so many love/hate opinons about Little Miss Sunshine that im afraid to rent it.

I've seen LMS and The Departed. LMS was good but The Departed kicked ass.

The only one i've seen thus far is Departed, but i def want to see Sunshine & Iwo Jima.

For those that have seen Departed...help me understand, was Wahlbergs character just taking revenge at the end or was he another dirty cop??? I spent a lot of time mulling that over after the movie & just cant figure it out.

Well my opinion was he just didn't like him.

That's what I thought, too.

He and Martin Sheen were pretty tight - maybe he was looking for revenge?

And he couldn't have been a dirty cop. Didn't he quit?

Bah, take out "Babel" and put in "Children of Men".

I haven't seen either, but I LOVE the idea that Clint Eastwood made two movies about the same topic, told from two different view points.

"Flags of Our Fathers" and "Letters From Iwo Jima"

I want to see both.

The only one I've seen so far is Little Miss Sunshine. It was pretty good, but my sense is that it shouldn't win Best Picture.

Man, there's a lot of movies and actors I see nominated that I don't think should be and lots that should be that aren't.

Is the movie "Children of Men" as good as everybody on TV is saying and if not is it still worth going to see?

My wife and I saw it this weekend and both thought it was good. Definitely worth seeing, and EVERYTHING is better in the theater.

The last couple of years has been bad for Hollywood, but now I am actually getting a backload of movies I want to see.

Hell, I still haven't seen Munich but a for a couple of bits and pieces.

I didn't think Children of Men quite lived up to the hype (it is NOT on the level of Blade Runner) but it is an excellent movie and very much worth seeing.

As for the Oscars, it's way past time for Scorcese to win. He's done better movies than The Departed, but this time he needs to win.

The Departed totally sucked.

>>> The Departed was a blast! What are you talking about?

But Scorcese is cursed...he's been nominated what...4 or 5 times and yet hasn't won once.

Mark Wahlburg usp for best supporting actor-he was a total azzhole in that movie. Will Smith??? Give me a break.

What a weak year!!

The Departed had a shitty ending and very lame plot. It should not even be Nominated. I was very disapointed in this movie.

And the Oscars wonders why their TV ratings are going in the toilet.

How about picking movies that people actually have seen.

Glad that Little Miss Sunshine got the nom. Best movie of the year.

Problem is, most of those suck.

It looks like they actually nominated really good movues this time around. Where the f*ck is 'Children of Men' though? That movie was by far better than even gems like 'Little Miss Sunshine'.

Ennio Morricone, who did the music for films like The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly, Once Upon a Time in the West, Once Upon a Time in America, The Mission, The Untouchables, Days of Heaven, is receiving the Honorary Oscar.
