Who deserves to win?

Subjective, of course. I say:

Best Picture: "The Departed"
Best Director: Martin Scorsese, "The Departed"
Best Actor: Forest Whitaker, "The Last King of Scotland"
Best Actress: Judi Dench, "Notes on a Scandal"
Best Supporting Actor: Alan Arkin, "Little Miss Sunshine"
Best Supporting Actress: Rinko Kikuchi, "Babel"
Best Adapted Screenplay: "The Departed"
Best Original Screenplay: "Babel"
Best Animated Feature: "Cars" (but all of these movies SUCK)
Best Art Direction: "The Prestige"
Best Cinematography: "Children of Men"
Best Costume Design: "Dreamgirls"
Best Film Editing: "The Departed"
Best Makeup: "Pan's Labyrinth"
Best Music - Original Score: "The Good German"
Best Music - Original Song "An Inconvenient Truth"
Best Sound Mixing: "Dreamgirls"
Best Sound Editing: "Flags of Our Fathers"
Best Visual Effects: "Superman Returns"


Departed all the way. But Kris, don't you think Matt Damon kinda got snubbed this year? He had two, very good performances in departed and especially Good Shepherd. Oh well.

Not particularly. He was good in "The Good Shepherd," but I've always considered him the weak link in "The Departed."

Wasn't Babel higher on your end of the year list than The Departed? I really hope the lack of support for Dreamgirls means Rinko Kikuchi can pull off an upset...
