Oscars 2005: My Guess List

Oscars 2005: Who will win? Here’s my best guess list based on buzz as well as the quality of the productions. Sometimes I may not like the message or subject matter of a film, but it would be impossible for me to ignore its artistic or emotional impact. I did not see BORN INTO BROTHELS but have read about it and heard about it from friends; AUTISM IS A WORLD is another one I didn’t see, but a favored topic (as is the Holocaust, e.g. SR ROSE’S PASSION but I am taking a guess here…). I have seen all the other films. So here is my guess list:
