Forest Whitaker will probably take the gold, too, but I wouldn’t count out Peter O’Toole just yet. He’s way overdue for an Oscar and this will probably be his last chance to get one. -screenwriter
Jennifer Hudson and Helen Mirren would appear to have locks on their respective acting categories, as does Forest Whitaker. It really looks like Martin Scorsese has nailed the golden man this year. Finally! And I hope his Best Director award translates into Best Picture for “The Departed” also. -writer
Who doesn’t think that Helen Mirren shouldn’t win the Oscar for “The Queen”? I just hope that the Academy doesn’t overlook Sasha Baron Cohen’s seamless performance in “Borat.” -Variety subscriber
Martin Scorsese, even though I’m not a fan of his at all. -producer
I think “Babel” has the best chance for Best Picture and Martin Scorsese has the best chance for Best Director. -Variety subscriber
I think it’s a given for Helen Mirren to win the Best Actress award and for Forrest Whitaker to win Best Actor. -Variety subscriber
