    Best Picture - It won at the GGs, why not at the AAs?
    Directing - Same as above
    Writing - Screenplay - Adaptation - It will probably win this one. Doesn't have much competition
    Makeup - Definitely in the bag
    Music - Original Score - Howard Shore's got this one
    Music - Original Song - Will probably win, got the GG
    Art Direction - No brainer here - winner!
    Costume Design - See "art direction"
    Sound - Don't know about this one. Might not win, but still a good chance
    Visual Effects - Definitely a winner. The other noms, PotC and M&C, have nothing on this
    Film Editing - Should also win, even with over an hour of extended footage left out, they did a great job.

    Well, how about some more negative ideas? I think mine were supportive enough. :) Check out www.oscar.com for the other nominees in all the categories.

    I have no doubts about this one. I could hardley except anyone else being chosen.

    But unfortunately I have my doubts about this one. This genre is a minor and unexplored one, along with the fact that AA screws alot of good movies when it comes to this decision.

    Then again, Braveheart/Gladiator has won B.P., but although those are very similiar, they have a historical background, while LotR has a pure fantasy background (obviously:p).

    Remeber, the academy is biased against the foreign productions, even if it is only new zealand.

    the other 2 LOTR films have already won the majority of technical awards so they might not win all those again. It should definitely win Best Picture & Director though

    Well I wouldn't find it to difficult to see ROTK winning best picture, the other two got good responses when they came out, but ROTK's reviews were explosive. I mean all the local critics here were screaming nothing but ROTK! And like a newscaster said after reading ROTK's Oscar Nominations:

    "That's all for Return of the King, and well none of the others matter!"

    Despite the fact that lotr has been screwed by the academy 2 years in a row i think that they will win best picture, and best director this year. If not...well ill be quite angry to say the least. This is the year...the last film...the end...ITS GOTTA WIN!

    I think lotr will when best picture, it definately should, to me it matters a lot. But I'll be OK if it doesn't. Why? Because twenty years down the road who is gonna be remembering chicago, or a beautiful mind, (not saying anything against all these movies) but who's gonna remember gladiator? Probably people will see that in blockbuster and say "oh i remember that movie when it came out." Now who is gonna remember Lotr twenty years from now? Everyone will because it's so grand no one is gonna remember just because it won best picture. Can anyone remember off the top of their head who one best picture when star wars came out? It's movies, like lotr, that stick with us for years to come that are the best, people will always remember it and it doesn't need any academy award to make it memorable or make it any better than it already is.

    Well said. It's hardley the end of the LotR's career if it doesn't win.

    I may sound crazy, but I bet RotK is about to win all 11 Oscars! I sure hope so.
