I was watching THE SIXTH SENSE last night. I thought that Academy Awards is a joke sometimes. How come they didn't gave any award to the movie.

Same thing with THE PASSION OF THE CHRIST. Best Actor, Director and Best Film - totally deserved it.

They can give CUBA GOODING JR an oscar -they cannot give Jim Caviezel an award for his performance in The Passion.

What did Cuba Gooding Jr did so far, after JERRY MACGUIRE? He did nothing. No roles and no performance. A big mistake.

This year all the awards are stuck with Slumdog Millionaire.

No Oscar Nomination for TDK except HEATH LEDGER, I am happy for Heath and I want him to win it, but the director and the movie deserves it big time.

I hope, I hope they give oscar to Brad Pitt for his performance. No Sean Penn or Mickie Rourke. I respect Sean Penn, but he has a oscar statue in his house already. As far as Mickie Rourke and Brad Pitt is concerned, I think Brad Pitt contributed a lot in the industry than Mr. Rourke, one movie will not make a difference. Brad Pitt deserves it.

they try to award people for the individual roles, not their careers.

I would be perfectly happy if Mickey or Sean won the award. Outstanding performances by both men. Performances of a lifetime even.

Rohan, I disagree with you, it doesn't matter how many awards a person has, if that performance is the best of the year than they deserve another award.
I see the world Lucius Hunt, just not the way you see it.

What was wrong with Jim's performance in THE PASSION? What was wrong with M.Night's work on The Sixth Sense?

Nothing. People just liked the other options better.

Which movie won the oscar as the best picture when The Sixth sense was also in the list that year?

I like it. I don't like it more than The Sixth Sense, but I like it.

It's a very well crafted piece.

I know a movie all of you should check out. "Taken". Awesome, sweet movie. Liam Nesson's still got it! He's amazing, the action was awesome, and it was very suspenseful. If you haven't seen it already, I reccommend seeing "Taken".

I saw it a long time ago. I don't remember much about it, but since then I've heard it is a watershed movie in the UFO fan community.
See the villain's larger eyes insinuating a just-off-normal perspective on how they see the world? I see signs Lucius Hunt; just not as you see dead people. I am so very happy we saw..each other, and no I will not tell you what color love is. Stop asking.

I wanted to watch 'Taken' something came up and changed my plan. My plan was to watch  Taken and Defiance. Well, since you stated it's good, I will wait for it on DVD. Liam Neeson is awesome.

I heard - Steven Spielberg is casting Liam Neeson for his biopic movie - Abraham Lincoln.
