My Oscar Picks

Since everybody under the sun is making prediction. I figure it wouldn't hurt to take a stab at it.

Leading Actor

Russell Crowe. Just because I don't want Tom Hanks to win again. I haven't seen Castaway anyway.

Supporting Actor

Jeff Bridges. I usually don't like him much, but I thought he made for a truly believable POTUS.

Leading Actress

Joan Allen. I know everybody's rooting for Julia, but as far as I'm concerned, she's no actress, just a movie star.

Art Direction

Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon. That's one.

Cinematography

Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon. That's two.

Costume Design

Gladiator. It probably took quite some work too.

Directing

Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon. That's three.

Documentary Feature

Your guess is as good as mine.

Film Editing

Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon. That's four.

Foreign Language Film

Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon. That's five.

Makeup

Innie, Mennie, Minnie, Moe...

Music (Score)

Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon. Go Yo-Yo Ma! That's six.

Music (Song)

Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon. A Love Before Time, the Mandarin version. That's seven.

Short (Animated)

Huh... Huh...

Short (Live Action)

Hrrmmm...

Sound

The Perfect Patriot Gladiator.

Sound Editing

<pin drop>

Visual Effects

Gladiator. Hands down.

Writing (Adapter)

Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon. That's eight.

Writing (Original)

Almost Famous.

Best Picture

Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon. That's nine out of ten.

Did someone say I was biased?

Apparently the producers are offering a big screen TV to the person with the shortest acceptance speech. I'm sure all the big movie stars can't wait to compete for such attractive prize. It should be pretty easy to win it anyway; say nothing... raise your thumb up and leave.
