I don’t think I filled out one of these lousy brackets last year, so I figured I’d use some of this anus-clenching suspenseful time before the big Academy Awards celebration to offer my two cents. Let’s get to it.
Writing-Adapted Screenplay– ARGO–I really think Argo‘s going to take home most of the key awards tonight, but we’ll see how that goes. They may want to show respect to every one of those 9 nominees…christ.
Writing-Original Screenplay– DJANGO UNCHAINED–Would’ve liked to see Moonrise Kingdom take this, but it won’t.
Directing– LINCOLN–Not sure why Tarantino isn’t listed here, but but I don’t think anyone else stands a chance.
Animated Feature Film– BRAVE–Because Wreck It Ralph didn’t have a lesbian ginger in it…just Sarah Silverman.
Actress-Supporting– Anne Hathaway (Les Miserables)
Actor-Supporting– Christoph Waltz (Django Unchained)–I was going to pick Tommy Lee Jones for this one, but I don’t think he really did anything different than his normal grumpy man act.
Actress-Leading– Jessica Chastain (Zero Dark Thirty)–I didn’t see this film, but she’ll win for the same reason BRAVE will.
Actor-Leading– Hugh Jackman (Les Miserables)–Honestly, I think Daniel Day-Lewis is going to win. I just really want to see his mind snap when he doesn’t.
Best Picture– ARGO
Well that’s it. Now we get to see what happens. Having said that, there will be an hour of the ceremony that AMC will be on…from 9-10pm.
