    Commentary

    Best Picture: Little Miss Sunshine. This one was amazing especially since it featured great music by DeVotchKa and more.

    Person if nominated will wear the ugliest dress: Kirsten Dunst. While she looked good as the frilly Marie Antoinette, I’m sure she would show up in something just plain ugly.

    Patrick Valenzuela

    Film that totally sucks but gets nominated anyway: Bobby. Emilio Estevez should have made another hockey movie instead.


    Best Picture: Little Miss Sunshine. If a film can aspire you to be yourself and not care what others think of you, this is the one to do it. So all you girls take note, eat all the chocolate ice cream you can and dance as sexy to “”Superfreak”” as you want. Olive did.

    Person that if nominated will wear the ugliest dress: Helen Mirren. After her too-revealing gown at the Globes, we all can hope that she keeps her grandma boobs hidden at the Oscars.

    Jamie Ross

    Film that totally sucks but gets nominated anyway: Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest. Okay, so there is probably no way this will go up for a Best Picture nomination, but you know Johnny Depp will find a way to wiggle his way into receiving a nod. Maybe Captain Jack Sparrow needed to drink some more rum because this sequel was not up to par.


    Best Picture: Borat. Although it’s highly implausible that a comedy will actually take this category, “”Borat”” deals with more serious issues (like racism and anti-Semitism) than most other dramas. Plus, Sacha Baron Cohen made the mustache sexy again; that’s worth an award in itself.

    Tessa Strasser

    Person that if nominated will wear the ugliest dress: Beyonce. The only good accessory she ever brings to an awards show is Jay-Z.

    Film that totally sucks but gets nominated anyway: Babel. Just because Brad and Angelina save kids from third world countries doesn’t mean their films are necessarily good. Did anyone ever actually watch “”Tomb Raider 2?””


    Best picture: Babel. Aside from Alejandro González IÇñárritu’s “”in your face”” style of making movies, who doesn’t love Brad Pitt and Cate Blanchett on-screen? Plus, it’s worldly and intelligent.

    Ernesto Romero

    Person that if nominated will wear the ugliest dress: Cameron Diaz. After her “”wedding cake gone wrong”” dress at the Globes, I don’t know if anyone will want to compete with her for this title at the Oscars.Then again, Bjork could wear a pink fur flamingo and have PETA shower her with buckets of red paint.

    Film that totally sucks but gets nominated anyway: Flags of our Fathers. This Clint Eastwood mistake is 100 minutes too long, which is pathetic when the movie is only 132 minutes. Hollywood needs to cut the hype on him.
