Someone beat me to it. Oh well. Let’s wish them BOTH LUCK and hope they both receive the recognition they deserve.
Well at least they were nominated. They’ll be long shots to win, but I’m glad they were at least nominated.
I was surprised to see Carradine get a nod. Giggady-giggady alright (although I would have rather seen my man Madsen get the supporting nom and Dave get lead, but you get watcha get.) Uma may win, as there’s no clear-cut winner in that one. Dave’s gone though, that Foxx Fuckers got it.
I haven’t seen any of those friggin movies. :-[
Go David and Uma!
Seriosuly Uma fucking deserves this shit, even an Academy Award for what she did in the Kill Bill movies. To go through all that physically demaning shit of gruelling fight scenes and show all that emotional range! She was fucken electric! A fucken newborn angel with lightning talent! BEST FUCKING FEMALE PERFORMANCE EVER!
Ever? I strongly disagree. I really dont see anything SPECIAL about Uma’s performance in Kill Bill. It DEFINITELY wasnt bad, but, it DEFINITELY wasnt the best ever either. Charlize Theron’s performance in Monster blows Uma’s acting in KB out of the fucking galaxy
Dave’s gone though, that Foxx Fuckers got it.
that Foxx fucker deserves it. It seems like Jamie Foxx is a way better actor than everyone thought
I heard Eastwood’s “Million Dollar Baby” is nominated for something. Anybody know more about the film? I know it stars Eastwood and Morgan Freeman. I haven’t heard much about it since when I did last year and there were rumours that it was another Dirty Harry film.
when will we know who the winnes are? :

Pffttttt. No way man. Uma was twenty million times better. And she worked her ass off doing those action scenes as well. Blows Charlize’s acting out of the fucking universe!
Did you even see Monster??? And dont even talk about going through shit to get into her role. So Uma worked her ass off with all the physical training to get ready for Kill Bill. News flash buddy, so does every fucking guy who stars in a action film. So what?
Now Charlize, she turned herself from INCREDIBLY BEAUTIFUL, to FUCKING HIDEOUS. She gained 30 lbs for her character. And unlike Uma, Charlize didnt have the courtesy of speaking in her normal voice. Through the whole movie she is speaking in character. Which she does MAGNIFICANTLY. And the research she had to do on Aileen Wuornos was farrrrrrr more than any Japanese Uma had to learn. Plus she displays a way larger range of emotion than anyone in KB and displays it with 2 times the skill. She won the Academy Award for Best Actress as well, which is more then Uma’s performance in KB can ever expect to recieve.
and again, I dont think Uma’s acting was bad. But it sure as hell doesnt stand out as a “great performance” AT ALL
I thought both Charlize and Uma did great jobs (probably the best of their careers), but i’d have to one up Uma just because I liked Kill Bill more and because I liked her more in that film than Charlize in Monster. Yes, Charlize gained alot of weight and had a great make-up job, but Uma lost alot of weight and physically toned her body for her role. But I think both of them performed to their max (and probably even more than that), and both showed a good deal of emotion and you could easily (well, maybe not as much in Charlize’s case) sympathize with each of them. But I think Uma did far more than just learn a different language and learn a couple of different martial-arts. I really felt for her character, maybe more so than any other character in any other film, and it was mostly due to her performance. QT’s direction defintely helped to define everything in the film, but there are some scenes that still give me chills down my spine, which were all due to Uma’s great acting ability. Take for instance the scene where Budd shoots her with the rock salt in V.2 and she spits the blood in his face. That look she has in her eyes alone is just about deserving of an Oscar imo. We as the audience also go through much more with Uma’s character than with Charlize’s in Monster. We see the awful things which led her to killing, but we can’t totally identify with her because she continues to kill even though we know its wrong. Now you may say that the Bride’s revenge in both Volumes of Kill Bill isn’t necessarily moral, but everything that takes place in the film is more or less fantasy and we can sympathize more easily with her because her enemies are seemingly more evil. Now alot of what i’ve been talking about deals with the direction and writing of both films, but I think that an actor/actress can only go so far with the material that they have. Uma Thurman as the Bride/Beatrix Kiddo had many memorable scenes in Kill Bill partly due to the great direction from QT and partly due to her just putting everything she had into the role. While Charlize Theron also gave it her all, some of her scenes didn’t have the same impact as the ones in Kill Bill because the script had a couple of mild flaws and the direction wasn’t as good as in Kill Bill, in my opinion.
So while I think they both perfected the roles they were given, I have to give the edge to Uma because I think that Kill Bill was a better film, which gave her more to work with, and I just really liked her performance better than Charlize’s.
I didnt feel any of those feelings you felt for Beatrix. Umas acting never made me really feel for her character that much. and I liked Kill Bill WAAAYYYYYYYY MORE than I liked Monster, but I still feel Theron was the (WAAAAYYY) better actress. Theron really had me feeling for her at points, really had me hating her at some points, and really had my pitying her at some points. She had me on a rollercoaster of emotions, which is what a great performer does. Uma didnt do it for me
I guess its just a difference in opinion (duh)
Yeah, it all depends on how much you could relate to the character and feel what they go through along with them. The only way to really find out how great of an actress each of them is is to watch other movies they’ve been in and judge their performances in those. From all the other films i’ve seen starring Uma and Charlize, they don’t seem like particularly great actresses (except for maybe one or two others), so I think it alot of times just depends on the direction/writing/editing/etc.
I didn’t really feel that much for either of them. Ones a psycho bitch who kills… and so is the other. But I definitly can say I enjoyed KBv1and2 ten times more than Monster. I’m not really attracted to either either. Charlize use to look good but now shes got a friggin michael jackson nose and looks like an alien.
I think David should win the best supporting actor award. I think Jamie Foxx deserves the best actor award. He got fricking screwed. Did his protaganist role get downgraded since he’s black and in an action film or what? He fricking rocked in that film. And what the hell are these other films? I never even heard of half of them. They get nominated before you can see them. Thats some stupid shit. I usually agree with critics but sometimes they give good ratings to films that just make you sleepy.
Wouldn’t Dave be in a best actor nom? Not a supporting actor nom? I mean, the freakin title is about his character? But I spose there is more of Madsen than there is Dave…so I suppose it evens out…?
I Hate Jamie Foxx, but he did good in Ray. AS for Uma/Charlize, I’m gonna have to go with Charlize, when I watched the actual interviews with Aileen, I swear I thought it was Charlize acting 2 dozen times, didn’t necessasarily care too much for the movie, but she did a kick ass acting job.

Dude remember that this board is has its fair majority of immature imbeciles who typically apply no logic or have absolutely little or no understanding of modern film whatsoever…(CASE AND POINT: READ COMMENTS BY USURPER WHO HAS THE GALL TO COMPARE UMA THURMAN IN KILL BILL TO CHALIZE THERON’S MONSTER)
That is the norm on this board, blind illogical pretentiousness desperately parading around as reasoned, thoughtful opinion!
Next you will see some one comparing Bruce Lee to Uma Thurman (because apparently she worked so hard to give off that lame ass martial arts performance)
