Short Film (Live Action)

    The Nominees:
    Everything in This Country Must
    Little Terrorist
    7:35 in the Morning
    Two Cars, One Night
    Wasp

    What will happen?
    A dangling Must is death when it comes to the Academy Awards. When was the last time you? Actually, these movie titles put together could probably be a good outline for a new movie script brimming with patriotism. Wasp will win though.
Sound Editing
    The Nominees:
    The Incredibles
    The Polar Express
  • Spider-Man 2

    What will happen?
    Incredibles wins. If the stars of these movies fought, who would win: The super heroes of the first, the weird no-expression zombie Tom Hanks train conductor, or Tobey Macguire?
Sound Mixing
    The Nominees:
    The Aviator
    The Incredibles
    The Polar Express
    Ray
  • Spider-Man 2

    What will happen?
    Ray gets its second Oscar of the night in this category. Interesting though, that this movie didn't get any nods for Music. Time for another Chris Rock joke.
Visual Effects
    The Nominees:
  • Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban
    I, Robot
  • Spider-Man 2

    What will happen?
    They can make whole worlds with computer graphics and can turn Dominic Monaghan into a midget with the press of a button, but they still can't make Spider Man look like he's actually swinging through the city. I, Robot will get a pity-Oscar here, so Will Smith can finally include the word "Oscar" in his resume, even though it wasn't really his.
Writing (Adapted)
    The Nominees:
    Before Sunset
    Finding Neverland
    Million Dollar Baby
    The Motorcycle Diaries
    Sideways

    What will happen?
    With so many recycled nominees, we're nearing the point of critical apathy. I'll cast my vote for Before Sunset, because it's only got one nomination this year.
Writing (Original)
    The Nominees:
    The Aviator
  • Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind
    Hotel Rwanda
    The Incredibles
    Vera Drake


    What will happen?
    I'm choosing Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind here. The writing was very unique (although I didn't like Charlie Kaufman's earlier stuff, like Adaptation. Though the others might have had great writing, they didn't necessarily have an innovation germ to start from.

Who will win? Who really cares?
