Oscar Predictions

Here's my Oscar list, with who I WANT to win and who I think WILL win in the major categories. This list is based purely on who has been nominated, rather that who I would REALLY want to win (otherwise I would put The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo as the film I WANT to win Best Picture). Also, forgive the lack of visually-stimulating text...am writing this from my phone as it's been 8 days since we moved into the new house and I still have no fucking internet for another four days.

Best Picture
Want: Toy Story 3
Will: The King's Speech

Best Director
Want: Tom Hooper (The King's Speech)
Will: David Fincher (The Social Network)

Best Actress
Want: Natalie Portman (Black Swan)
Will: Natalie Portman (Black Swan)

Best Actor
Want: James Franco (127 Hours) or Colin Firth (The King's Speech) - can't make up my mind...
Will: Colin Firth (The King's Speech)

Best Supporting Actress
Want: Melissa Leo (The Fighter)
Will: Melissa Leo (The Fighter)

Best Supporting Actor
Want: Geoffrey Rush (The King's Speech)
Will: Christian Bale (The Fighter)

Best Animated Feature
Want: Toy Story 3
Will: Toy Story 3

Well, other than Best Picture, our predictions are exactly the same this year. Looks like it'll all come down to that.

Well, you win out of the major category predictions this year. I won at our annual Oscar party in the overall predictions despite missing Best Director and Best Picture.

Sorry I haven't responded sooner...still without internet at the new house (will finally have it Wednesday) and having the best smartphone in the world is no use if your coverage is horrible!

Yeah, this was a tough one as far as Picture and Director. At first (when you did your predictions), TSN was by far the favorite.

Then a couple of weeks went by and TKS started to get a head of steam and was the front-runner.

Then, as usual, some controversy started to stir about the historical inaccuracy of TKS and TSN started to make a comeback.

In the end, I still thought TKS would win Picture, but felt sure Fincher would win, not only as a way of splitting the two big prizes for both the front-runners, but also because Fincher has won most of the directing awards, while Hooper's won very little.

For me, Hooper's win was the surprise of the evening...
