it's that time again....when the movie industry rewards its best (or those who campaigned for the m ost votes - or whose films made the most money). My master always watches the OSCARS, and I have been forced to the last two years of my now I'm making my own predictions, meow.

I'll do some today and some tomorrow. It's a weighty matter which requires my full attention.

The nominees:
Best Supporting Actress

Amy Adams
"The Fighter"

Helena Bonham Carter
"The King's Speech"

Melissa Leo
"The Fighter"

Hailee Steinfeld
"True Grit"

Jacki Weaver
"Animal Kingdom"

The favorite in this category is Melissa Leo, but my pick is an actress I feel is vastly underrated: AMY ADAMS. Her roles are varied and she always does a great job in each one, whether she's playing a nun or a fairy princess. Good luck Amy!

Best Supporting Actor

Christian Bale
"The Fighter"

John Hawkes
"Winter's Bone"

Jeremy Renner
"The Town"

Mark Ruffalo
"The Kids Are All Right"

Geoffrey Rush
"The King's Speech"

Well, if they gave awards in this category for looking buff and toned, I'd definitely pick Mark Ruffalo, who looked good both in and out of clothes in "The Kids are All Right". But since the Acadamy's tastes are a bit more eclectic, I'll have to pick GEOFFREY RUSH - even though the odds on favorite is Christian Bale, and he's won pretty much every award going, the Academy likes to reward class - and Rush has that in spades.

Best Actor

Javier Bardem

Jeff Bridges
"True Grit"

Jesse Eisenberg
"The Social Network"

Colin Firth
"The King's Speech"

James Franco
"127 Hours"

I really think this one's a lock: Bridges not only won last year, he's up for a role for which the immortal John Wayne won his one and only Oscar - the Academy is not going to touch that with a ten foot pole. I personally loved Jesse Eisenberg in "The Social Network" but he's young and has many Oscar years ahead of him, as does James Franco. Javier Bardiem's already won, I believe, so....the winner is COLIN FIRTH.

Tomorrow: Best Actress, Best Director, and BEST PICTURE!

What are your choices?
