I'm hoping the academy will recognize Million Dollar Baby as the movie that really isn't all that good, and will give love to Sideways.

Cate Blanchet was by far the worst part of The Aviator. She did a grating portrayal of Katherine Hepburn that was more of an imitation than a performace. If she wins, I might file a protest.

Picture - Sideways

Actor - Foxx

Actress - Swank

Sup. Actor - Hayden Church

Sup. Actress - Portman

Director - Scorsese (Aviator)

Song - Accidentally In Love (Shrek 2)

Score - Harry Potter
