As I’ve mentioned before, I am a bit of a movie junkie so I have decided to make some Oscar predictions for today’s blog post. Here is my ranking of the best picture nominations (all of which I’ve seen) and my picks for the other major categories (I’ve seen almost all of the nominated films).
Best Picture: 1) Inglourious Basterds 2) The Hurt Locker – will win best picture 3) An Education 4) Up In The Air 5) Precious 6) Up 7) A Serious Man 8) District 9 9) Avatar 10) The Blind Side
Best Actor: Jeff Bridges for Crazy Heart
Best Actress: Sandra Bullock for The Blind Side but Carey Mulligan for An Education or Helen Mirren for The Last Station could surprise.
Best Supporting Actor: Christoph Waltz for Inglourious Basterds
Best Suporting Actress: Mo’Nique for Precious
Best Animated Picture: Up
Best Director: Kathryn Bigelow for The Hurt Locker
Best Documentary: The Cove
Best Adapted Screenplay: Jesse Armstrong, Simon Blackwell, Armando Iannucci, Tony Roche for In The Loop
Best Original Screenplay: Quentin Tarantino for Inglourious Basterds
In my next post, I’ll let all of you know how I did in the 10 categories I am predicting.
