OK…I’m not a gambler, but I’m going to go out on a limb and pick who I think will win in the major categories on Sunday night. If I’m wrong, feel free to laugh at me on Monday!
Update – let’s see how I did…
Argo (Of the nominated films that I saw, this was by far my favorite. It has also won several other awards this season.
Score one for me!
Daniel Day Lewis (He’s won several other awards this season, and I thought his was a stellar performance)
Yay! I got it right, but it was a no-brainer!
Emanuelle Riva (I’ll admit, I didn’t see any of the films with nominated actresses. Amour is a foreign film that hardly anyone has seen. Usually the academy gives out an award to someone from out in left field, and I think this will be the one.)
Winner – Jennifer Lawrence (Silver Linings Playbook)
I heard the Academy is trying for a younger audience. Ta Da!
Best Supporting Actor:
Tommy Lee Jones (I think he was amazing in “Lincoln.”)
Winner - Christophe Waltz (Django Unchained)
I’ll admit defeat on this one!
Best Supporting Actress:
Anne Hathaway (She’s won every other award this season, although I think Sally Field is just as deserving.)
So check back with me Monday and we’ll see how well I did.
