All month, I've been breaking down the Best Picture nominees, posting trailers for Best Documentary and Best Foreign Language Film nominees, checking out the art direction and costume nominees, and generally getting pumped up for Sunday's show.

I don't know how Julian Schnabel will fare for Best Director, but I loved that you picked him! I haven't seen "Diving Bell" yet, but I really liked "Basquiat," and it would be cool that the Academy awarded him for his directing talents.

Marion Cotillard is so deserving of the Best Actress Award; I hope you're right on that one and on "Falling Slowly." My picks for Director and Supporting Actress are different, but on the rest, we agree. Looking forward to Sunday night.
