Which Oscar Nominee Are You Excited About?

01/23/2007 at 12:00 PM ET

We are well in the midst of awards season with the Golden Globes and People’s Choice behind us and the SAGs coming up this Sunday — but does anything compare with the excitement of the Oscars? We are all abuzz over the surprise nominations — Ryan Gosling for Best Actor, Abigail Breslin for Best Supporting Actress — and we already dreaming about what the nominated ladies might wear on the red carpet. Penelope Cruz, nominated for Best Actress for Volver, never fails to up the glamour quotient, as does Best Actress nominee Kate Winslet with her elegant simplicity. And this year’s wild card is Cate Blanchett, nominated for Best Supporting Actress for Notes on a Scandal, who just keeps taking exciting fashion risks. Tell us: Who are you most looking forward to seeing at the Oscars?

I love Penelope Crus she is gorgeous and she is one of my favorites.

Meg on

It’s so tough, because they’re all such talented, gorgeous women… I’m split between Meryl, Helen Mirren and Penelope.

j on

i’m haven’t seen ‘volver’, but it’s cool penelope got nominated. TOUCH group of ladies, though…i think it’ll go to helen mirren or meryl…

Frab on

Kate Winslet all the way!

Candice on

Hands down, Ryan Gosling!

Kristin on

Kate Winslet- always deserving but overlooked everytime. This is her 4th nod if I remember correctly.

Defintely NOT Jennifer Hudson.

marianne on

I love penelope cruz..she is beautiful…and very talented…I dont know who deserves to win b/c I havent seen all the performances yet…is going to be tough this year !!!

Judy on

I am looking forward to see what all the ladies are wearing on the red carpet especially Kate Winslet. Her choices are always very classy. I hope she wins for Little Children and i want Leo to win for Blood Diamond. He was awesome in that film. He has really grown as an actor. I can’t wait.

Amber Janel on

Jennifer Hudson – whoever is dressing her has done a fabulous job thus far!


Ryan Gosling!

kristi on

ryan gosling and abigail breslin. shes adorable!

Nicole on

I hope that Meryl wins for “Devil wears Prada”. I love that movie! I think is a breath of fresh air from all the other more “serious” movies!

Elda on

Good luck Penelope!!

hjfrance on

This is Kate Winslet’s 5th oscar nomination! She won’t win this year, it’s Helen Mirren’s year, but she will keep doing good work and eventually she WILL. YAY KATE!

Courtney77 on

Even though Brad was robbed and not nominated, I still hope he and Angelina go to support Babel!
Im also looking forward to Penelope Cruz.

Cameron on

KATE WINSLET! She is so sweet and a great actress! It’s her turn to get an Oscar! Although, I do think Meryl was good in “The Devil Wears Prada”.

Suzi on

My fave is Helen “The Queen” Mirren! Streep is a close second! Adore these women!


Jennifer Hudson,
I am from Chicago and she was fantastic in Dream girls. She will definitely win.

Kelly on

Ryan Gosling!! gorgeous and talented.

Caty on

I’m really happy for the little girl from Little Miss Sunshine (Breslin I think his her last name). She was GREAT in that movie. And I’m extremely happy for Jennifer Hudson and Eddie Murphy hope you guys both win. Forest Whitaker was GREAT in “Last King of Scotland”, if he wins it’s well deserved.

Sarolta on


Kristen on

Let’s see I want Meyl Streep to win, Jennifer Hudson,
Leonardo Dicarprio, and the supporting actor in blood

Sarolta on

DJIMON HOUNSOU & LEONARDO DICAPRIO for their roles in “Blood Diamond”

Kristen on

Ryan Gosling=most underappreciated actor=amazong!!!!
