Raja Sen

Entertainment Correspondent Raja Sen gives his spin on the Academy Award nominations 2005.

My Oscar list isn't a set of predictions, it's a set of wishes: That the Academy will finally grow up and look beyond melodramatic biopics. That foreign cinema won't just be another consolatory category. That the upper lips will finally quiver with laughter.

Unlikeliest odds in the world, but here are the ones who deserve the gold.
