The envelope, please


Were trying to get over our depression that Ghost Dog didnt get an Oscar nomination for anything. Heres what the campus crowd picked as winners.

I thought Traffic was a very accurate portrayal of the drug world, and Im obsessed with Benicio Del Toro as the supporting actor.

Hans Zimmers score for Gladiator should win. I think its got a skillful use of the human voice as an instrument. Its got a distinct theme they synchronize words in the movie with sounds. Its just very moving overall and captures the feel of the movie.

Ellen Burstyn, for Best Actress she stole every scene she was in [in Requiem for a Dream]. Her acting is very natural, not over the top like others.

Traffic was really good because of the way they integrated three stories into one. The cinematography was great and the cast was incredible. I dont think they could have gotten a better lineup of people.

Gladiator was the best movie to see more than once. I saw it six times in one weekend.

Gladiator had so much intensity. I liked the history in it and I thought Russell Crowe was awesome.

Quills should have been nominated for Best Picture, and Geoffrey Rush should win for Best Actor. It offers a profound insight to the struggles of the human soul.

Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon was thought-provoking: I spent the whole time wondering how they could walk up the sides of the buildings.

I liked Erin Brockovich and thought it was inspiring. Julia Roberts character is really spunky. Her clothes were a little too spunky for me, though.

Tom Hanks is so versatile. He changed so much from the beginning of the movie [Castaway].

Bjork should have been nominated [as Best Actress] for Dancing in the Dark.

Jeff Bridges in The Contender should win. It was a really realistic movie and he seemed to portray the character very well.

Joan Allen should win for [Best Actress in] The Contender. Shes been in a lot of good movies and hasnt been recognized enough.
