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.
