After my luck in predicting the Grammy's, i thought I would try my hand at the Acadamy Awards...
Disclaimer... I have not been to the movies in AGES! I haven't seen any of these movies... It's the first time that this has happened. i love movies... I just haven't had the time. So, I am choosing my picks based on what I have seen and read in papers, on TV and online. The Acadamy is somewhat predictable about who will be denied on Oscar night. People like Brad Pitt and Anjelina Jolie have time left in their careers to win more... they each have one already. The Acadamy is all about comebacks, and rewarding long careers, with an Oscar. Here are my guesses... Compare them with the winners list Sunday Night! I think I'll go 75% correct! maybe 80%! Better odds than the stock market!
Mickey Rourke is almost a lock on this one. Hollywood lovesÂ good 'comeback story'. The only person that could take it away from him is Frank Langella, because people think he's due.
Two Words: Heath Leger
Kate Winslet has been nominated for Oscar's several times, and has never won. She's won every other award this year, and i think the Acadamy wants to reward her.
Viola Davis is going to take this one... She has been getting RAVE reviews for this performance. It would be great to see Marisa Tomei win for playing a stripper!
Wall-E has it hands down!
The Curious Case of Benjamin Button is going to win all of the Art/Effects awards, they found a way to make Brad Pitt ugly!
Slumdog Millionare will get this, this movie is going to win big!
Benjamin Button take it... This film went through 80 years worth of costumes
Slumdog Millionare, everyone loves this movie!
Man On Wire, this guy was nuts!
The Witness. I'm guessing here, I haven't seen any of them!
Slumdog Millionaire, they are going home with an arm full of Oscars
Again, I am guessing. Hey, I picked the Polka Grammy blind! Waltz with Bashir
Benjamin Button. Ugly Brad Pitt=Oscar!!
This one is going to be close, Wall-E could win it, but I think Slumdog is going to sweep up!
Slumdog, I'm going with the odds here... Jai Ho
I feel bad saying that Frost/Nixon and Milk are going to be shut out, unless Frank Langella wins over Mickey Rourke... Long shot! But, I think Slumdog will take this one too. And it's the big one to win!
Octopod... People like 'cute'
Since I haven't seen any of these either... New Boy is my guess. Not very scientific, I know.
Wall-E is the only one with a chance to take it from Slumdog.
Same answer as above
Not going to be close... Slumdog, it's going to be a bloodbath
