Best Director Brothers: Joel and Ethan Coen, who’ve never won an Oscar for directing in a two-decade career, deserve to take home gold for No Country for Old Men.

Best Original Song: This one’s a breeze: any one of the three nominated songs from Enchanted, though the catchy toe-tapper “That’s How You Know” is my personal favorite.

Best Animated Feature: For compelling story plus visual panache, it’s hard to beat Ratatouille. Now if only Remy, its master chef rodent hero, would come over to my house to cook.
