Today I am continuing with my OSCAR predictions:
Best Actress: and the nominees are:
"The Kids Are All Right"
OK, let's face it. The only one who's got a shot in hell of upsetting Natalie Portman is Annette Bening, and Mrs. Warren Beatty needs a MUCH BETTER haircut before she can trip up to the podium and thank everyone in creation for her Oscar. I will agree, though, her time is coming, becasue she's been overlooked quite a bit - might even call her the "Susan Lucci" of Oscars. But it's Portman's year for playing psycho-bi-ballerina. Just the type of family movie the Academy voters love.
Best Director:Best Director
David O. Russell
"The King's Speech"
"The Social Network"
Joel Coen and Ethan Coen
usually Best PIcture and Best Director go hand in hand, but sometimes not - making this one a tough call. So I'm simply going to vote for my favorite, and that would be David Fincher. He made a movie that I thought would be dull and boring into one that wasn't.
THE GRAND FINALE:
The Kids Are All Right
The King's Speech
The Social Network
Toy Story 3
Gone are the days when only 5 films were nominated - now Hollywood feels they turn out such quality products they nominate everythign but the kitchen sink. This makes for much, much, split voting,another reason that this category, unless it's a runaway, is hard to call. There are several here it could be: Social Network, Black Swan, the Fighter, the King's Speech - so I'm just gonna go with my gut and say, once again, THE SOCIAL NETWORK.
ok, there you have it. My predictions! Tune in to ABC Sunday night at 8 p.m. and see how right I am! (Maxx: Geez, even if he gets one right he'll be unbearable!)
How right you are, brudda!
tomorrow: My take on Westminster (the dog show, not the abbey)
