    OMG! THAT'S FANTASTIC!! I can't wait to see the Oscars!!! I'm just so nervous that they won't win for Best Picture. If they do, they will make film-making history!!

    To watch the Oscars uninterupted I'm going to switch work nights with someone. Since there are so many nominated ROTK catagories, the dudes are going to be on the whole show !!!! Get ready for many PJ, Elijah, Orlando, Viggo, Liv etc. close-ups. I'd watch while I'm working but I doubt everyone will appreciate my continual whooping and hollering.

    I have a good feeling that they will walk out with all 11 or the majority of them.
    I'm disapointed that none of the cast got best actor, best supporting actor.. etc. I think that Sean should deserve best supporting or at least a nomination.

    Hey it's okay at least Sean will be happy that LOTR got so many nominations and some of it will rub off on him

    I heard on the radio that no "Third in a trilogy" has ever won best pic. Nor has any fantasy, ever. Also, alot of times, if a movie does tremendously well at the box office, often the Academy feels it's already been "honored" so they don't let it win best pic.

    The Return of the King has alot of obsticles up against it. If it wins best picture, it will all be worth it.

    I'm stoked.

    HOLY CRAP! A clean sweep! Congrats to PJ and the entire cast & crew. They totally deserve it & more. If I'm not mistaken, this makes 17 total for the trilogy.
