My Little Oscar Predictions

Here is where I go crazy and try to add some interest in the proceedings. I will be SO wrong, but it is fun isn't it?
Best Original Screenplay

'Inglourious Basterds'
'The Hurt Locker'
'(500) Days Of Summer'
'A Serious Man'

Nothing special or unusual here. Just going with my gut here.

Best Adapted Screenplay

'Fantastic Mr Fox'
'Julie & Julia'
'Up In The Air'
'Where the Wild Thing Are'

I have this nagging feeling that there may be more love for 'Julie & Julia' and 'Wild Things' then previously hinted at.

Best Supporting Actress

Mo'Nique - 'Precious'
Melanie Lauret - 'Inglourious Basterds'
Marion Cotillard - 'Nine'
Anna Kendrick - 'Up In The Air'
Samantha Morton - 'The Messenger'

This is all mainly wishful thinking, but I have a hard time swallowing people being so enraptured in the 'Up in the Air' girls.

Best Supporting Actor

Christoph Waltz - 'Inglourious Basterds'
Woody Harrelson - 'The Messenger'
Christopher Plummer - 'The Last Station'
Christian McKay - 'Me and Orson Welles'
Stanley Tucci - 'Julie & Julia'

Again, wishful thinking, but I would like to see them reward his better performance.

Best Actress

Meryl Streep - 'Julie & Julia'
Sandra Bullock - 'The Blind Side'
Carey Mulligan - 'An Education'
Gabourey Sidibe - 'Precious'
Saoirse Ronan - 'The Lovely Bones'

Bored, need a shake up. Was going to ignore Bullock for shits and giggles, but I know that is not going to happen.

Best Actor

Jeff Bridges - 'Crazy Heart'
George Clooney - 'Up in the Air'
Colin Firth - 'A Single Man'
Morgan Freeman - 'Invictus'
Viggo Mortensen - 'The Road'

have had a nagging feeling about Renner for a while, so decided to give Viggo a slip in - really want Sharlto Copley in here though.

Best Animated FIlm

'Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs'
'Fantastic Mr Fox'

What the hey.

Best Foreign Film

'Un Prophete'
'The White Ribbon'
'Samson & Delilah'
'Letters to Father Jacob'
'About Elly'

Sad about no 'Broken Embraces'.

Best Director

Katherine Bigelow - 'The Hurt Locker'
James Cameron - 'Avatar'
Quentin Tarantino ' Inglourious Basterds'
Lee Daniels - 'Precious'
Neil Bolmkamp - 'District 9'

Meh, just some guess work....will not happen but one likes to pretend.

Best Picture

'The Hurt Locker'
'Up in the Air'
'Inglourious Basterds'
'An Education'
'District 9'
'Where the Wild Things Are'

Anything can happen here. It is going to be interesting
