So, what movies and which actors/directors/editors etc. are going to be walking away tomorrow night with the big, gold statues of naked men?
Best Motion Picture of the Year:
Black Swan, The Fighter, Inception, The Kids are All Right, The King’s Speech, The Social Network, 127 Hours, Toy Story 3, True Grit, and Winter’s Bone
As much as I loved Toy Story 3 and True Grit, I am betting on The King’s Speech.
Achievement in Directing:
Darren Aronofsky (Black Swan), David O. Russell (The Fighter), Tom Hooper (The King’s Speech), David Fincher (The Social Network), and Joel and Ethan Coen (True Grit)
For some reason, I’d like to see that one going to the Coen Brothers.
Performance by an Actor in a Leading Role:
Javier Bardem (Biutiful), Jesse Eisenberg (The Social Network), Colin Firth (The King’s Speech), James Franco (127 Hours), and Jeff Bridges (True Grit)
Performance by an Actor in a Supporting Role:
Christian Bale (The Fighter), John Hawkes (Winter’s Bone), Jeremy Renner (The Town), Mark Ruffalo (The Kids are All Right), and Geoffrey Rush (The King’s Speech)
Not to beat a dead horse, but…
Performance by an Actress in a Leading Role:
Annette Bening (The Kids are All Right), Nicole Kidman (Rabbit Hole), Jennifer Lawrence (Winter’s Bone), Natalie Portman (Black Swan), Michelle Williams (Blue Valentine)
My guess is Ms. Portman
Performance by an Actress in a Supporting Role:
Amy Adams (The Fighter), Helena Bonham Carter (The King’s Speech), Melissa Leo (The Fighter), Hailee Steinfeld (True Grit), and Jacki Weaver (Animal Kingdom)
I want it to be Hailee Steinfeld.
But it wouldn’t kill me if Amy Adams won, because she is just so adorable in everything she does.
She won my heart in the 2007 movie Enchanted.
Well, I think I’ll leave the rest to the professionals. But, one last big shout out for Toy Story 3 for Best Animated Film.
