Tuesday, February 6----With the ballots for the Academy Awards in the mail, speculation is growing about what has become an impossible to predict Best Picture race. While BABEL was considered the frontrunner, especially following its Golden Globe win last month, there is now industry speculation that BABEL and Martin Scorsese's THE DEPARTED may split the "serious film" vote.

Movie Topic: PACINO VERSUS DENIRO

user
Why are Pacino's contributions more impressive than De Niro's? 1. THE STAGE Pacino, even to this day, eats, sleeps and breathes acting. It's all that he knows.
