REV: Some Oscar Contenders

We're still a month-plus away from announcement of Oscar contenders, but as usual this time of year, i'm trying to catch up on the possibilities ahead of time so that i can make a list of my favorites. Having not seen a number of the buzzworthy flicks out there for now i'm just going to start listing the performances i've seen that i really liked. I'm also not sure at this point which films are candidates so i'm going with the stuff i've seen this year. [will keep moving to top as i find more things to list]

The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou (Bill Murray, Angelica Huston) [looks like this cannot be a 2005 nominee]

Sin City (cinematography)

Jarhead (Jake Gyllenhaal, Jamie Foxx, Peter Saarsgard)

Walk the Line (Reese Witherspoon)

Lords of Dogtown (cinematography, Heath Ledger)

Rent (musical, Taye Digges)

Movies that i haven't seen that will be in the running: Good Night and Good Luck, Munich, Capote, Brokeback Mountain, Memories of a Geisha, Take the Lead, Shopgirl, North Country
