Saturday, February 26th, 2011 • 1 Comment on My Oscar Picks
For the first year since I can’t remember when (and certainly since they started nominating so many movies), I have seen all of the Oscar nominated films!
Whew! Before the nominations were announced, I had only seen Inception and Winter’s Bone (believe it or not!), so I had some catching up to do. I wrapped it up last night with The Kids Are All Right and now I can have some fun and make my Oscar picks! So, here they are:
Best Picture: Inception (but I’m torn between that and True Grit)
Actor in a Leading Role: Jeff Bridges, True Grit
Actor in a Supporting Role: Christian Bale, The Fighter
Actress in a Leading Role: Natalie Portman, Black Swan
Actress in a Supporting Role: Hailee Steinfeld, True Grit
Animated Feature Film: Toy Story 3 (But I didn’t see the other 2 nominees)
Art Direction: Inception
Cinematography: True Grit
Costume Design: Alice in Wonderland (I didn’t see it, but the costumes look stunning)
Directing: The Coen Brothers, True Grit
Film Editing: Black Swan
Music (Original Score): Inception
Music (Original Song): “We Belong Together,” Toy Story 3
Visual Effects: Inception
Writing (Adapted Screenplay): Winter’s Bone
Writing (Original Screenplay): Inception (But I would love it if The Kids Are All Right won)
I left out categories where I didn’t see any of the films (documentary, foreign and short film categories, for example). Maybe someday I’ll make a point of seeing all the films that are nominated in any category. Though that’s probably far too ambitious. The only other person I know who seems to be as into the Oscars as I am is Neve Black, who is attending an Oscar party that sounds awesome. It’ll be just me and the television tomorrow night, for however long the awards last… and maybe some snacks to get me through the night!
So, what about you? Who will you be rooting for on Oscar night?
