De Niro non disputandis est
or, in English, don't fuck with Bobby De Niro
. Which is what the English have been doing recently, naming Al Pacino
as the greatest movie star of all time. Askmen.com
is a little more appreciative but also brackets Pacino with De Niro
. The American Film Institute
] will be giving De Niro their 31st Lifetime Achievement Award on June 12 but - there they go again - he's merely described as "widely regarded as one of the most skillful actors of the last three decades". Is nothing sacred anymore? Who's the man [read "of a certain age, experience and cojones"
], after all? I mean, after Jack Nicholson
, of course. Now I'm all confused!

The Oscar® nominations won't get announced until tomorrow, which means that the noms for The Razzies
were announced today. The biggest contender? John Travolta revolting pet film, "Battlefield Earth," with eight.

dis-honor the worst achievements in film for 1999. My personal favorite, Heather Donahue in Blair Witch. Forget the Oscars.

This year's list of Oscar nominees seems way, way off.
But here's my big five predictions given their lame choices (along with my personal faves if I could choose anything): best pic: American Beauty (Magnolia), Actor: Denzel Washington (John Malkovich), Actress: Hilary Swank (same), Supporting Actor: Tom Cruise (Philip Hoffman), and Supporting Actress: Angelina Jolie (same, she was amazing).
