    Wes Anderson is an amazing director. He deserves much recognition in my opinion, but some of the performances in his films deserve some form of Academy Award nominations or wins

    Some (in my opinion)

    • Gene Hackman deserved a nomination for The Royal Tenenbaums
    • Bill Murray deserved nominations for Rushmore, Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou and a win for Moonrise Kingdom (this could happen though)
    • Any of the three men in The Darjeeling Limited deserve a nomination(s). Owen Wilson was the most deserving

    Opinions?

    Well, Gene Hackman should have been nominated, that’s for sure.

    Not a fan of Bill Murray or Owen Wilson, but I do enjoy Anjelica Houston and Jason Schwartzman…

    Wes Anderson probably has a better chance of winning the Oscar for best
    screenplay, although I would imagine his movies aren’t to everybody’s
    taste…

    I just love The Fantastic Mr Fox; the stop motion, the screenplay, the score (Desplat), the voice perfs. It didnt have much of a chance against “Up”, but I preferred Fox and the screenplay. Actually overall the animated films nominated that year are terrific. Coraline, Secret of the Kells.

    Bill Murray is great in everything imo. And I’m happy to see that somebody else finds Schwartzman sexy. So do I. And Owen Wilson has grown on me. He was terrific in “Midnight in Paris”.

    Wes Anderson certainly marches to his own drums. And I think he’s an exceptional writer.

    babypook, I assume that you are referring to my previous post, which I edited and re-posted before you posted yours. I called Schwartzman “sexxxy” and believe that to be indeed true — what other young actor (well, he’s over 30 now, over the hill!) regularly sports a big bushy mustache or a hairy he-man beard? I removed the “sexxxy” adjective since I thought some people might find it demeaning. Personally, though, I always strive for “sexxxy”!

    Yep. If “Diablo” Cody can win an Oscar, anyone can, especially Wes Anderson, who is a much better writer.

    I would’ve nominated:

    ‘Rushmore’
    -Best Actor, Jason Schwartzman
    -Best Supporting Actor, Bill Murray (robbed)

    ‘The Royal Tenenbaums’
    -Best Actor, Gene Hackman (robbed)
    -Best Supporting Actor, Luke Wilson
    -Best Supporting Actress, Gwyneth Paltrow (robbed)

    ‘The Darjeeling Limited’
    -Best Supporting Actor, Adrien Brody (deserving, and much better than Schwartzman and Wilson IMHO, and if Natalie Portman had been eligible for the short film that came before it, I’d have nominated her in Supporting Actress too. She was killer good in all of like 8 minutes or something)

    P.S.- Schwartzman could have me anytime.

    I’ll third that he was absolutely robbed.. I LOVE that film, the whole ensemble was at the top of their game.

    I’d give Best Actor nom for Gene Hackman (The Royal Tenenbaums), Best Supporting Actor for Bill Murray (Rushmore), and Gwyneth Paltrow for Best Supporting Actress (Royal Tenenbaums).

    Murray for Life Aquatic, Paltrow and Hackman for Royal Tenenbaums.  I really don’t understand why there’s buzz for Murray’s performance in Moonrise Kingdom.  I love him, but he was better in Life Aquatic and Rushmore.  He was a minor, somewhat forgettable part of Moonrise Kingdom, while Bruce Willis, Edward Norton, and the kids quite outshone him.
