Johnny Depp

post #1 of 28
Thread Starter 
was nominated for and Oscar for his role in Pirates of the Caribbean. Wonder what his chances are.
post #2 of 28
OOooohhh! Johnny Depp, one of my favorite topics!

I think his chances are slim to none, honestly. But I think it's pretty cool that he was nominated, especially for a role like that. It's usually only the serious dramas that get any nods for acting.

(An aside, although Return of the King was nominated for 11 Oscars, not one of the actors was nominated. Peter Jackson said he was very disappointed about that.)

Johnny Depp is hot

The Oscars typically overlook comedic roles, so I don't have high hopes for a win for Johnny - one great exception in the fairly recent past was Marisa Tomei's supporting actress win for My Cousin Vinny.

I think that Bill Murray has a pretty good chance to win this year, as a comedian who made an impressive move into a dramatic role (from what I have read - haven't seen the movie yet.) Oscar voters seem to like that (Tom Hanks, anybody?)

He got nominated? Too cool!!! I really like his work, especially when he plays odd roles (like Ed Wood). But will he win? Probably not-although I think it says a lot he was nominated for this role (BTW, I loved the movie).

I really think Sean Astin should have been nominated for his role as Sam. In Return of the King he really brought so much the role (Sam really became the hero of the story), and I'm disappointed he wasn't recognized.

I hope Johnny Depp wins, he was really good, he stole the film (of course Orlando Bloom running around didn't hurt either ).

I totally agree! The bit when Frodo chose Gollum over him made me cry so much (thankfully I had waterproof mascara on) he was my favourite character (of course Orlando Bloom running around didn't hurt either - do you see a theme developing here ).

I'm sorry he didn't win his Golden Globe. He's a good looking man!

Johnny Depp is THE HOTTEST guy in show biz next to my beloved Paul Stanley. I don't think he'll win, because I don't think he is in the Hollywood "clique" and unfortunately there's a lot more to winning an Oscar than just talent.

For anyone who "forgot" which role Johnny's nominated for, I found this snapshot in my files here.

(Sorry, I just couldn't resist!!)

ummmmmmm he is just sooooooooooo Yummy - very excentric - but definately YUMMY!!! Loved him ever since 21 jump street!

I don't think he has much chance, although he was brilliant. The Academy doesn't always pick the best, IMO. Sometimes it seems that they give awards to people based on several roles--Russell Crowe for Gladiator when he was much better in The Insider is one who stands out for me. Maybe they figure it's time for JD, since he's so good in everything.

Is it me, or is he better looking now than he was on 21 Jump Street? Thanks for the pic Heidi, I was going to go looking for one later.

I think he keeps getting better and better looking with each passing year.

Johnny was definitely HOT as Capt. Jack Sparrow, but as with Orlando Bloom, I only find him hot in that role. I kinda thought he was ok in Blow- but I think I 'fall for' the character played more than the actor himself. Anybody else like that?

Yep, I'm like that. Great example-George Clooney. He's a handsome man, but I don't find him hot...except for in "From Dusk Til Dawn". I don't know if it was the neck tattoos, the character or what but WOW

I was going to say the exact same thing, but wondered if anyone would remember 21 Jump Street! I loved that show!!!

I remember 21 Jump Street, I never watched it because I was in college and didn't watch much TV.

I sometimes fall more for a character, too, but then it usually transfers to other roles. I was reminded about how good-looking Johnny Depp is in Chocolat, and now I think he's hot in just about everything.

Same with David Duchovny, about 3 seasons into the X-FIles, I really found him handsome and still do.

Also VIggo Mortensen, loved him as Aragorn. Also as David in A Perfect Murder, Walker in A Walk on the Moon, and the cover of January's Vanity Fair.

I personality loved his role in Pirates of the Carribean. I loved the character and how he got into the act.
Has anyone heard that there's going to be a sequel to that movie?
Because at the end, after the credits, the money comes back to the chest of coins and gets one.

It's all rumors and speculation right now, but we all know that when Disney has a successful movie, they milk it for all it's worth. One rumor is that in the contracts for the stars of the movie, there was a clause that they would do 2 more movies if the first one was a hit (which it obviously was).
post #26 of 28
I'm all for Johnny getting this Oscar, even though the odds are against him. He's great in everything he's been in, especially the roles Tim Burton gives him.

The sequal is on this list of 2005 and beyond releases. Hopefully it doesn't turn into a disaster like sequals tend to do.

There's alot of other funny sequals on that list too, if you're bored..

But yeah, Yay for Johnny Depp! And I hope "Pirates" gets the Visual Effects Oscar too!
