Asked by ucme (45538points) March 6th, 2010

Predictions for oscar glory. We can look back when it’s over & choose our own overall winner based on correct hits. You may “vote” on the following.

Best picture
Best actor in a leading role
Best director
Best actress in a leading role

Anyone correctly predicting all four may recieve a small prize in the form of kudos.

(Although I suspect it will really be Sandra Bullock, I just think Helen Mirren deserves it much more.)

The highlight for me will be watching Christoph Waltz off with the supporting actor bling.Brilliant performance well deserved.“Bingo”!!

I predict:

Picture: Avatar
Director: James Cameron
Actor: Jeff Bridges
Actress: Sandra Bullock
.
.
I want:
Picture: District 9
Director: Kathryn Bigelow (or, really, anyone but douchebag Cameron)
Actor: Colin Firth
Actress: Gabourey Sidibe
.
.
Also, I would very much like Coraline or The Secret of Kells to win Best Animated Feature, but Up (which I didn’t really care for) is my prediction. :(

I think that the producer might have blown the Hurt Locker’s chance.

Best Picture: Avatar
Director: Kathryn Bigelow
Actress: Sandra Bullock
Actor: Jeff Bridges

Christoph Waltz, Inglourious Basterds
^ the only award I’ll pay attention to

filmfann's avatar

Best Picture The Hurt Locker
Best Actor Jeff Bridges
Best Director Quenton Tarantino
Best Actress Sandra Bullock

I actually think Kathryn Bigelow will win Director, but I didn’t want to be too repetitive.

@MacBean ~ I completely agree with you on Coraline.

janbb's avatar

@mcbealer @MacBean I agree about Coraline too; it was wonderful Haven’t seen The Secret of Kells yet but I’m dying to. I do think Up will porbably win and I wasn’t crazy about it either.

mcbealer's avatar

it’s over for me.

Sandra Bullock won.

Aethelwine's avatar

@mcbealer I have to admit, she just gave a beautiful speech.

mcbealer's avatar

@jonsblond ~ couldn’t hear it… I’m at work :(

janbb's avatar

WOOHOO! The Hurt Locker won best picture! My faith in humanity is – partially – restored.

mcbealer's avatar

@janbb ~ did you see the way ackward body language between Bigelow and Mark Boal? He very obviously wanted to include her in the moment when accepting the Oscar for Best Motion Picture, and grabbed her arm and kept tugging her until she finally moved in closer to the mic. Very funny.

ucme's avatar
