    I still have to go to bed and wake up before the actual countdown begins here :mad:
    On the bright side I was watching an entertainment show earlier and it said LotR was the film that was most likely to win best picture this year:p

    Yeah, I really think FOTR deserves to win over ABM but I'm thinking it's very unlikely. The academy is so partial against fantasies it makes me sick.

    I defy anyone to prove that there is a bias against Fantasy in the Academy...don't bother, it cannot be done.

    Can one prove any bias about anything?

    Granted, this would be a hard bias to prove since there's been so little fantasy worthy of Oscar recognition.

    Yeah PRH, that's my point...I keep seeing people claim there is a bias in the Academy against Fantasy, but what percentage of movies each year are Fantasy for starters, and then what percentage of those few are worthy of more then Makeup, Costume or Effects nominations? If we look at the past 20 years alone we have maybe...Time Bandits, Legend, Labyrinth, Krull, Willow and now LotR...

    I could as easily claim that the Academy has a bias against Horror or Courtroom Dramas.

    Yeah, I agree. For all the flaws in the adaption, it still deserved to win over the rest.
