Oscar’s Very Late Predictions


Last November I dared to do a post with very early predictions about Oscar’s nominations and gee I think I guessed some right, but there were many omissions. So with only one day to learn the nominations here are my latest predictions with some nominations I’m sure and others still a maybe.

Best Picture

Remember that this year there will be 10 nominated films which only make it a little bit hard to guess all.

Sure
Avatar
The Hurt Locker
Up In The Air
Inglorious Basterds
Precious

Maybe (will be in the other 5 spots)
An Education
A Serious Man
Invictus
Julie & Julia
And there is the possibility of a blockbuster like Star Trek or Disctric 9. The not so good surprise will be if a comedy like The Hangover get’s in.

Best Director

Sure
Kathryn Bigelow for The Hurt Locker
James Cameron for Avatar
Quentin Tarantino for Inglorious Basterds

Maybe
Jason Reitman for Up In The Air
Lee Daniels for Precious
Clint Eastwood for Invictus (I hope he makes it)
Lone Scherfig for An Education

Best Actor

Sure
Jeff Bridges in Crazy Heart (hmm, I bet he will win)
George Clooney in Up In The Air
Colin Firth in A Single Man

Maybe
Morgan Freeman in Invictus
Matt Damon in The Informant!
Jeremy Renner in The Hurt Locker
Michael Stuhlbarg in A Serious Man

Best Actress

Very Sure
Meryl Streep
Sandra Bullock

Sure
Gabourey Sibide in Precious
Carey Mulligan in An Education
Helen Mirren in The Last Station

If I’m wrong in the sure ones, then maybe the fifth spot will be
Emily Blunt in The Young Victoria
Melanie Laurent in Inglourious Basterds
Saorise Ronan in The Lovely Bones

Best Supporting Actor and Actress

Sure thing... for winning the Oscar no matter who else is nominated (and if it doesn't happen will be a HUGE surprise). As some say no one dares to bet against any of them two.

Actor: Christoph Waltz in Inglorious Basterds
Actress: Mo'Nique in Precious

I bet that both categories will be announced early in the awards show -as always-.

Was just recalling that Alec Baldwin and Steve Martin will host the awards show this year, so I was thinking that will not be a coincidence if Meryl Streep gets TWO nominations, one for Julie & Julia and another for It's Complicated. If it happens votes will split and the sure winner will be Sandra Bullock! I hope it doesn't happen for the sake of the category remaining "interesting".

Well, tomorrow we will learn what Oscar will look this year.

Cheers!
