In the run-up to the 2006 Oscars, our panel of film fans are giving regular updates on who they think is leading the race for the Academy Awards.
In this third instalment, the panellists share their thoughts on award ceremonies past and present, their excitement about this year's event and their dreams of giving their own acceptance speech.
The readers' panel has been selected from as wide a cross-section of people as possible and may not be representative of wider public opinion.
