2004 Bellview Awards
Ahh, it's that special time of year
America: World Police"
In a year when even the best movies were
just pretty good, the "South Park" boys really hit a home run with
their marionettes thriller
"Spring, Summer, Fall, Winter...and Spring"
of the Dead"
"Tae Guk Gi
(The Brotherhood of War)"
Best Actress--Mandy Moore,
Will she win the Oscar? Nope...but you
can really imagine that happening one day when you watch her
psycho-religious character prancing around the screen
Lindsay Lohan, "Mean Girls." So
State." My favorite work of hers since "The
Sunshine of the Spotless Mind." Role is somewhat
similar to Portman's work, and just as flawless
Catalina Sandino Moreno,
"Maria Full of Grace." The movie tails off in its last
half-hour, but Moreno is riveting for most of the flick
Best Actor--Jon Heder,
Just an incredible creation of a nerd, right
down to the last tater tot
for an Oscar nom this year
Jim Carrey, "Eternal Sunshine of the
Spotless Mind." If he doesn't get a nod this year, will he
ever get nominated?
Leonardo DiCaprio, "The Aviator."
Hammer." Jesus, this was funny (pun intended)
Best Supporting Actress--Tina Fey, "Mean
And, she wrote the script. What will
she do next?
Meryl Streep, "The Manchurian
Candidate." Almost outdoes Angela Lansbury, who was
nominated for the same part in the original
Last year's Bellview Awards winner for "Pieces of April" keeps on turnin' 'em
Eva Amurri, "Saved!" Has that
"will never work in Hollywood again" look to her, but in this
movie she's a rock
Yep, the movie was a dog...but you gotta respect a woman that
laps up being the bad guy (or girl)
Best Supporting Actor--Antonio Banderas,
I watched this again with my kid sisters
over Thanksgiving; man, Ban Badass' voice work is money in this most
unlikely of scenarios
Daniel Franzese, "Mean Girls."
Yeah, he's playing the now-overwrought gay best friend, but if
you do it well, it's all good to me!
Freddie Highmore, "Finding Neverland."
I get the feeling we're going to be seeing Mr. Highmore a LOT
Jong-ho Kim, "Spring, Summer, Fall,
Winter...and Spring." The 10-year-old iteration of our
lead is maybe the best actor in the film
Heart Huckabees." As funny as I can ever remember him
being in a film, that dinner sequence was fantastic
