I am sure that all the people on this forum that didn't want Dreamgirls to win are probably white. Dreamgirls clearly displays the talent that lies within the Black community. Talent should have no color but obviously, that is not the case for you or for the Academy. Have you seen Pursuit of Happyness? One nomination? It is better than Lil Miss Sunshine eventhough it is funny as all get out..it brings nothing to our nation. Dreamgirls is a magical movie...it did slow down at the end..but if you noticed....so did the group. It is a great film and was snubbed in every since of the word in the oscars. I am not giving these racist pigs my money any more...unless it's a good movie like the Departed and Queen.

Any list of Best Actor snubs would have to include Daniel Craig in "Casino Royale". Craig's performance was a flat out tour de force and his portrayal of James Bond was aggressively unique and completely fresh. Name another actor who has done as much for a franchise in the last decade. Daniel Craig breathed life into one of film's most enduring icons, inhabiting a role with a physical grace and subtle sophistication that many doubted he could bring to the role. The exact opposite happened, much to the delight of grateful 007 fans around the world.

i'm very surprised sacha baron cohen didn't get a nom for Borat. It wasn't the best movie but he didn't break character for a second during the movie which is a huge feat in itself!

Thank you for smoking, the prestige, little miss sunshine and the queen all should've got more noms.

I'm just glad that beyonce didn't get a nom. She seemed a little obnoxious at the golden globes (and her dad too). stick to singing, honey.

Rocky,Rocky,Rocky,Rocky,Rocky,Rocky,Rocky,Rocky,Rocky,

Bill F.--that's right dreck they are! but cheesey, guilty pleasures---they're mediocre, so-so, or just plain awful films but you can't help but watch them (and chuckle and wonder what the hell the Academy was thinking at the time). And Little Miss Sunshine will be amongst them if it wins Best Picture....Does the Academy really need to embarrass themselves even further?...

LIIIIIIITTTLLLLLLEEE CHIIIIIIIIIIIIIIILLLLDDRREEEEEEENNNNNN :(

Very surprised that the academy did not choose to nominate Dreamgirls in the Best Picture catagory, but did nominate Clint's 99percent Japansse "Letters "
It seems clear to me that the academy just loves Clint, is tired of Jack Nicolson and lost the opportunity to reward a musical film with a afro american cast,
Let's hope Ellen is funny because there really is no reason to watch this years Oscarcast with such serious films other than "Little Miss Sunshine" , nominated

Theories why DG didn't get best pic:
1) Condon bashed the Academy last yr for Brokeback? Backlash anyone?
2) The 1st part was sterling gold, the 2nd part - like the play - slowed down and turned into a soap opera, cliche. (soul singer od's, star singer leaves husband). But truthfully, it was high energy the first half, and possibly couldn't keep up that pace the 2nd half. Besides that, the orig. play didn't win best at the Tonys.
3) Matthew Knowles big mouth at the Globes (or so it was alleged)

But even so, it was way better than LMS--wtf? A road trip?
And yes, Oprah is cutting up her membership card as we write.

I mean seriously, Brad Pitt..is just eye candy , besided aonly Angelina will be voting for him had he been nominated, seems teh hollywood community has beef with them, jsut as well Angelina got her Oscar before her horrrid behavior or else she will not even be gettting honorobale mention ...

I was very surprised that the foloowing were not nominated:
Nicholson, Damon, Pitt, Volver, Pedro Almodovar, Maggie G, Shareeka, Dream Girls and Bill Condon.

First of all I am satisfied for most of the Academy Awards nominations, however I can't believe Pirates of the Carribean did not get Best Make-Up!!! I know it is a mere techinal award, but that was probably the best thing about the movie! I am glad that Mark Walberg did get his props over Jaaack! Jack was good, but Mark stole the movie.

i love revisionist criticism. the guy who said ANNIE HALL, YOU CAN"T TAKE IT WITH YOU, and OLIVER were dreck needs to see them again...maybe awake this time. as for GREATEST SHOW ON EARTH, it's corny as hell but very entertaining. if these are dreck....bring em on. i'll be there to watch.

Why is every one so very very happy that a great movie like Dreamgirls didn't get nominated? I think I already know the answer to that question too too well. It seems things never change. HOW VERY VERY SAD!!!!

DREAMGIRLS has some very good performances, but its not a great movie at all. Is there a frame we haven't already seen? RAY, CHICAGO, AMERICAN HOT WAX, ALL THAT JAZZ... even SPARKLE was more original.

MAGGIES GYLLENHAAL SHOULD HAVE BEEN NOMIATED. SHE WAS OUTSTANDING IN SHERRYBABY!!!!

MERRYL STREEP IS THE WORST ACTRESS. HOLY MOTHER HOW DOES THAT BROAD KEEP GETTING NOMINATIONS. SHE IS NOT THAT GOOD OF AN ACTRESS. EMILY BLUNT AND STANELY TUCCI WERE THE BEST ACTORS IN DEVIL WEARS PRADA.

LETS REMEMBER FOLKS MERRYL'S 'BIG' NUMBERS COME FROM TWO CATEGORIES........ BEST ACTRESS AND SUPPORTING ACTRESS. WHEN ANOTHER ACTRESS FINALLY GET 12 NOMINATIONS IN THE BEST ACTRESS CATEGORY MAYBE I'LL PEE MY PANTIES................. UNTIL THEN KATHARINE HEPBURN STILL RULES IN THE BEST ACTRESS CATEGORY.

I am just glad Ryan Gosling got a well deserved nominatio! The guy is really amazin in the film! Congrats, Mr. Gosling!!!!

It will breakdown like this at the Oscars:

THE DEPARTED will win Best Pic because it's commercially doing well at the box office, a typical gangster film, and the Academy will finally have to make amends with itself for their past snubbing of Marty and his films.

THE QUEEN is a safe bet for Best Picture with its top notch cast/performances, setting, etc. It's still doing brisk business at the box office and it's typical stodgy, stuffy British fare which the Academy can't resist. If THE DEPARTED doesn't win--THE QUEEN will reign supremely.

BABEL and LETTERS FROM IWO JIMA are the excellent choices overall but too bold for the Academy's taste. Knowing the Academy's history--it's not well known for honoring excellent films to begin with when such mediocre dreck as THE GREATEST SHOW ON EARTH, ANNIE HALL, TITANIC, YOU CAN'T TAKE IT WITH YOU, CRASH, MARTY, OLIVER win Best Picture. But a win for Babel or Letters would be grand but not very likely.

A LITTLE MISS SUNSHINE win for Best Picture would be a disaster!! Crash was bad enough--I don't think the Academy wants to embarrass itself again.

Btw, DREAMGIRLS was robbed--well made musical film. For it to get the most nominations and not Best Picture and Director noms is robbery!! If I had a choice between Dreamgirls and Little Miss Sunshine, a no-brainer--Dreamgirls all the way! And another note CHICAGO is another well-made musical film up there with CABARET. It was a long time coming since a well-made musical film walked away the Best Picture Oscar and CHICAGO deserved it period!

Now I can openly root for iwo jima. how can one say the best movies of yr are 93 and half nelson when flags and iwo jima and children of men weren't seen. long stand by actors...bening, caine, zellwegger, nicholson and others were passed over. dreamgirls got all it needed too and should have gotten negative nominations for jamie foxx - most wooden and boring. innaritu and babel are overrated and the almodovar snub is uncalled for. i want to hire litt miss sunshines pr team!!! last yr crash, they ran the prm this yr sunshine, they ran the pr. watanabe ignored for good talent, and adam beach and james mcavoy have a big gripe....stay tuned for more of my coverage.....

half nelson, united 93, children of men, and blood diamond were the superior films of the year (note: i havent seen either clint iwo jima movies yet, pan's lab or volver)

and by the by, wasn't forest whitaker the supporting actor in that film, even if his is the face on the poster? his performance was fantastic.

the same of meryl streep, that was a supporting role, fantastically well played in a piece of fluff movie

for leading actor, no one touched ryan gossling in half-nelson, too bad that not enough voters saw it to vote for him

and the gods are happy that mad jack didn't get nominated for his phone it in silliness in the most overrated film of the year

I don't think "Dreamgirls" was snubbed either and it's not because it wasn't a great movie, because it was a great movie. It just wasn't the best total package of this year. There were too many flaws (weaker acting, slow middle, etc.) for a "Best Picture" nomination. However, people, it did receive the MOST nominations of the year in all the appropriate categories (including all the great new songs)! That's an achievement that I am starting to look at as a "Best Picture" honor by itself (like how "Brokeback" also had the most nods of last year). "Dreamgirls" is not hurting by any means and will most likely pick up several wins while the other BP nominees may not win any. Look at it that way.

How can the movie with the most nominations not be nominated? That makes no sense at all. Every article about the nominations starts with the word "Dreamgirls", only to say in the end that it was snubbed. So the big story of the day is that the Academy is schizophrenic.

The Academy didn't get anything right if it let Little Miss Sunshine in as one of the five Best Picture nominees. Hey retards - if they miss the van the first time, drive around in a circle and pick them up on the second pass!

Of course the biggest sin this Oscar season is the snubbing of pin-up boy Emilio Estevez and his magnum opus Bobby. It's a shame the Academy ignores talent like this just because he's so pretty. Harvey Weinstein assured me that I would wake up to a dozen nominations for Bobby... how could he be so wrong?!

CONGRATS ACADEMY!!! Finally a Best Picture line up where all the nominations are deserved. Dreamgirls was OK at best. Music was flat and the movie had no heart or energy. FYI, saying something was "snubbed" implies that a nomination would have been deserved. Bill Condon and Dreamgirls were not "snubbed."

yikes. people. get a life. are you really that excited that dreamgirls didn't get nominated? i can see you all jumping up and down, pumping your fists in the air, at 7:00 a.m. this morning (or whatever ungodly time the announcement happens) when there was no dreamgirls on that list.

personally, i think it's a good film. certainly not the best picture of the year. and let's all get together and watch streisand's "a star is born" and talk about how it didn't get nominated for best picture back in the day. has anyone seen it lately? outside of the footage of her singing, it's a horrible film.

DreamGirls as best pic? I mean, seriously folks. Is it not enough that Chicago scandalously got a best pic, the most lightweight choice of all time? Musicals are NEVER best picture material. If you can say it, you don't need to sing and dance it is my motto ... Marty will sweep this year because the Academy eventually fixes its mistakes (Denzel wins for Training Day because he lost for Hurricane et al). It's not even a flick in his career top 3, which begins with Raging Bull. The real shocker is Marky Mark getting the supporting nod over Jaaaaaaaack.
