There were a few categories I didn't include for various reasons - most people won't have seen any of the films, or at most only one of the films, so voting would have been a bit unfair and pointless.
Plus most of them haven't been released in the UK, so I didn't know what to write about them.

The Oscars are so bogus any more that it makes me ill. The quality of the work in any given category has become all but irrelevant in comparison to the politics and lobbying of the studios to get votes. Its just a big popularity game.

Umm... No offence Tarn, but why exactly did you make 17 new topics? Couldn't there have just been one? Is it so you can look at all the votes for each category?

You can only attach one poll to a topic, which means we needed a seperate topic for each category so that all the fxhomers can cast their votes.

All the polls seem to be shifting toward Lord of the Rings for almost everything. Personally I dont think LOTR did all that good with makeup. I think Pirates of the Caribbean did an awesome job at makeup. I mean, just look at Johnny Depp's face in that movie! They really did a great job with that.

Personally I thought the orks and uruk-hai's make up were remarkable. I think that deserves a lot of credit!

As Serpent said, the Orc and Uruk-Hai make-up in LotR is fantastic - particularly in the first film, with Lurtz and the Moria goblins.
However, the best makeup in the movie is with Gimli...brilliant makeup, backed up by a brilliant actor.

I think that Return of the King will probably get alot of the awards perhaps even break the record for most oscars recieved by one film.

Not if I have anything to do with it!
Is it even nominated for enough stuff to break the record?

The Lord of The Rings: The Return of the King has won 11 prizes out of a possible 11 at the Academy Awards.
The final part of the Tolkien trilogy scooped a clean sweep, including best picture and director for Peter Jackson.
It became the first fantasy film to win best picture - and equalled the record Oscar win at the Hollywood ceremony.
And in my opinion. It deserved every single award.
Well done. Joly good show.

Whoopee. 3 hours of my time wasted. Not that I'm not happy for LOTR for winning everything... It's just that I said when the nominations were announced who would win, and everything I said was right! I didn't need to watch it, because I already knew. How predictable!
