My Oscar Predictions
Best Picture: The Hurtlocker (CORRECT)
I think District 9 SHOULD win but I don’t think it will. Avatar has a slim chance, but I still think the Academy are going to give it to a film with more depth.
Actor in a Leading Role: Jeff Bridges (CORRECT)
The critics seem sure of Bridges’ win and he did win a Golden Globe. However, the Academy does love them some Clooney, as do I. So if Bridges does not win it will surely be Clooney.
Actor in a Supporting Role: Christoph Waltz, Inglorious Basterds (CORRECT)
Hands down, no doubt. Brilliant acting.
Actress in a Leading Role: Sandra Bullock or Meryl Streep (CORRECT-ISH)
I really have no idea on this one as I didn’t watch either film but I heard both women did some amazing acting! Sandra has never won so it would be nice, Meryl wins without even trying. But she can’t help her awesomeness.
Actress in a Supporting Role: Mo’Nique (CORRECT)
This one is a definite.
Director: Kathryn Bigelow for The Hurt Locker (CORRECT)
Could she be the first female director to win an Oscar? I hope so! She deserves it!
Animated Feature Film: Up (CORRECT)
Such a great film and very touching!
Art Direction: Avatar (CORRECT)
Cinematography: Avatar (CORRECT)
Foreign Language: The White Rabbit (WRONG)
Film Editing: The Hurt Locker (CORRECT)
Adapted Screenplay: Up in the Air (WRONG)
I’m not guessing on any others because, honestly, I have no idea!
