I am very excited about the Oscars tonight. For the last two weeks I have watched about every major nominated film, which was quite a task to be honest. There wasn't one that I didn't like, but I have to say some necessitate strong stamina. Such a load of human reality can bury the emotionally fittest of us.
So here are my predictions:
Best Picture: "The King's Speech” although I would give it to Inception
Leading Actor: Colin Firth in "The King's Speech”
I think he deserves it, but James Franco in 127 Hours was way more original.
Supporting Actor : Geoffrey Rush in "The King's Speech”
Leading Actress: Natalie Portman in "Black Swan"
She was amazing. I was stunned. All the other women were incredible great this year, too.
Supporting Actress: Hailee Steinfeld in "True Grit"
I wonder why she only gets nominated for supporting role. She was not only the main character in the film in my opinion, but also the pulling factor. I guess she wouldn't stand a chance for the Leading Role Oscar, though.
Art Direction: "Alice in Wonderland"
Cinematography: "The Social Network"
Costume Design : "Alice in Wonderland"
Directing : “True Grit”
It's probably gonna go to The King's Speech, but I don't see it as the winner. I guess I would like it to go to The Social Network.
This is random, because I haven't seen any documentaries, which is a shame.
Documentary (Feature) "Inside Job"
Documentary (Short Subject) “The Warriors of Qiugang"
Film Editing : “Black Swan"
Makeup "The Wolfman”
Original Score “Inception”
Original Song "Tangled”
My absolute favourite. I so hope it gets an Oscar.
Animated Short Film: "Day and Night"
Live Action Short Film: "The Crush”
Sound Editing : "Inception"
Sound Mixing: "Inception"
Visual Effects : "Alice in Wonderland"
Just to say something different. Probably goes to Inception.
Adapted Screenplay “Winter's Bone" - Great film.
Original Screenplay "The Kids are Alright"
That's more of a hope. I guess it goes to King's Speech again.
Last thing to say: I'm very bad with predictions.
