The big night is finally here, as Hollywood sets up and sets off for its night of nights – The Oscars! If I lived stateside I would *so* throw an Oscars bash, but alas, here in GMT we are eight hours ahead, and 1.30am is not the time for a party. Especially not on a Monday! So instead I’ll tape it to watch tomorrow evening while I do my ironing (the glamour!). I thought It would be fun to blog my picks though, and funny to look back and see which I got right in the cold clear light of day tomorrow.
Best Picture: The Artist
Best Director: Michel Hazanavicius. Beautiful film, lovingly crafted.
Best Actor: I’d love it to be le Clooney, and I wouldn’t rule out Oldman (he’s such a don!), but I feel like this is Jean Dujardin‘s year.
Best Actress: This is wide open for me, so it’s hard to choose. But choose I must. I think Michelle Williams will take it (go Jen!).
Best Supporting Actor: I haven’t seen any of the movies, so I’m guesisng here….I’m going to go for Jonah Hill, mainly because a) E! were mean about him being nominated; and b) his speech would probably be entertaining!
Best Supporting Actress: I loved both Berenice’s and Melissa’s performances and would be stoked if they won, but I think the little gold man will go to Octavia Spencer.
Best Song: ‘Man or Muppet’. I would love to see Bret McKenzie lift an Oscar!
Best Screenplay (A): George Clooney & Grant Heslov and Beau Willimon for The Ides of March. Awesome film.
Best Screenplay (O): Annie Mumolo and Kristen Wiig for Bridesmaids. Seriously, that movie made me roar in places. Particularly the bit with the gangster car!
I’m going to predict that I’ve got roughly three right. But which three? What are your picks?
