Alright, here is your chance to pull out your oh so stylish crystal ball and predict which film will win the Oscar for best picture. And, since there were a lot of good films not nominated, like my personal fav 300, leave your pick for "film that was not nominated for the best picture Oscar, but should have been" in the comments section.

'The Diving Bell & The Butterfly,' which did receive a Best Director nomination, should have been on the Best Picture list, too. It's an extraordinary film that literally re-defines film making, and it is filled with performances that are far better than most of those in the acting categories, too.

This is so sad... I've not seen any of them.

But I voted for Juno because it had the cutest trailer.

The documentary, "For the Bible Tells Me So" produced and directed by Daniel Karslake, was considered for an Oscar, but didn't make the final cut. I was highly disappointed that the film didn't get the recognition that it so greatly deserves.


I thought Juno was quite good, although my second favorite was No Country for All Men. I'm glad Juno is getting a nomination.

I think the Entertainment section on FunAdvice will feature a lot of Oscar news as the awards approach, if you are interested in having a look.
