Idol Chatter

Now that the winners of the Beliefnet Film Awards have been announced (click here if you haven’t seen them yet), we can finally turn our attention wholeheartedly those other awards, which are being given out Sunday night. Since there’s not a lot of time between now and then, we thought it would be helpful to remind you of all that Idol Chatter–and Beliefnet generally–have had to say about the Academy Awards. (These links will all pop open a new window, so just close that page to return here.)

For starters, check out Kris’s predictions of who will–and who should–take home the top honors on Sunday night, by clicking here.

Best Picture Nominees

  • Kris heaped praise on “Crash” here.

  • Doug gave props to “Good Night, and Good Luck” here.
  • Donna generated lots of discussion with her thoughts on “Brokeback Mountain,” which you can find here. (Paul and Kris also weighed in on “Brokeback)
  • Saul Austerlitz and Shmuley Boteach debated “Munich” here. And Michael offered his proverbial two cents here.

  • Nobody wrote about “Capote”: Does that make it the least spiritual of the nominees? (Our sister Beliefnet blog Chattering Mind did discuss Truman Capote here.)

Best Foreign Film

  • Michael wrote about one of the Best Foreign Film nominees, “Sophie Scholl: The Final Days” here.

  • Hala Shah interviewed the director of “Paradise Now” here.

Finally, Paul asked here whether the success of “The Passion” has had any noticeable effect on Hollywood. (And Kris responded to him here.)

Happy watching! And please let us know what you think by using the comments link below.
