My Oscar Picks

The OscarsThere is less than an hour before the Oscars air. I’ve decided to make some predictions again this year.

Best Original Screenplay:
Diablo Cody – Juno

I loved the writing in Juno—very clever.

And the winner is: Diablo Cody – Juno

Best Performance by an Actress in a Supporting Role:
Cate Blanchett – I’m Not There

And the winner is: Tilda Swinton – Michael Clayton

Best Performance by an Actress in a Leading Role:
Julie Christie – Away From Her

And the winner is: Marion Cotillard – La Vie en Rose

Best Performance by an Actor in a Supporting Role:
Javier Bardem – No Country for Old Men

He has creepy down!

And the winner is: Javier Bardem – No Country for Old Men

Best Performance by an Actor in a Leading Role:
Daniel Day-Lewis – There Will Be Blood

“I drink your milkshake! I drink it up!” Loved it.

And the winner is: Daniel Day-Lewis – There Will Be Blood

Best Director:
Ethan and Joel Coen – No Country for Old Men

This movie was a bit insane, but some of the subtleties in performances were fantastic.

And the winner is: Ethan and Joel Coen – No Country for Old Men

Best Picture:
No Country for Old Men

I would rather see There Will be Blood get it, since I enjoyed it more. The unresolved plot in No Country for Old Men was a bit frustrating but it’s a movie that stays with you and I think it’s a sure thing for the win.

And the winner is: No Country for Old Men

Of the seven categories I made predictions on, I got 5 of them right. I think I am getting much better at predicting these things than I have been in previous years.
