    I have no idea about some of the categories but here's some of my thoughts.

    Best Actress: I haven't seen it, but i would love for Nicole Kidman to get a nod for "Australia." God knows i love her. Kate Winslet needs to win it though (i havent seen her movie either but you just know she's a shoe-in)

    Best Supporting Actor: I want Heath Ledger to win for the Dark Knight. :wink:

    Best Director: Christopher Nolan for the Dark Knight (but i'd also like for Baz Luhrmann to nominated for "Australia". It was a crime to not nominate him for Best Director but to have Moulin Rouge nominated for Best Picture)

    Best Song: I must say, "All Dressed in Love" from Sex and the City made the last five minutes of the movie. Jennifer Hudson rocked that one.
