My Oscar Predictions 2013


Best Supporting Actress



Will Win: Anne Hathaway (Les Miserables)

Should Win: Probably Hathaway. I haven't seen Lay Miz because I generally detest musicals, but the Mrs. has and says she was great in it. And obviously the Mrs. has exquisite taste.




Best Supporting Actor



Will Win: Tommy Lee Jones (Lincoln)

Should Win: I really liked DeNiro in Silver Linings Playbook, but I'd be ok with either guy.




Best Actress



Will Win: Jennifer Lawrence (Silver Linings Playbook)

Should Win: SLP was kind of sucky, but Lawrence was great in it. The Academy will get this right.




Best Actor



Will Win: Daniel Day Lewis (Lincoln) 1/50 odds in Vegas.

Should Win: The Academy will get this one right too. If Bradley Cooper wins, I'm going to finally give up on America and move to Spain.




Best Director



Will Win: Spielberg (Lincoln)

Should Win: Out of these nominees, yeah, he probably should.




Best Picture



Will Win: I'm sensing a groundswell for Argo

Should Win: Argo or Lincoln would be fine with me.




Oh and this guy's movie for Best Furin

I hear so many people saying "I don't care about watching the Oscars because I haven't seen a single one of the nominated movies."

I take the opposite view. I love the Oscars because of the pomp and glamour, and rather than look to it as a review of what I've already seen (I haven't seen a single one of the nominated films either), I use it as a preview tool to decide which ones I'd really love to see. Since I don't base my movie choices on the opinions of others (for example, one of my favorite movies of all time is "Original Sin" - which the critics panned), the fact that they show so many clips and feature so much music from the films gives me a nice overview of what's on offer, and what to look for when it comes to our local library.

Thus, I save lots of money by NOT going to the theater, and have bunches of cool stuff to look forward to in the coming year!

Very good choices. Christopher Waltz is a deserved winner too. He was excellent in Unglorious Bastards. About Life of Pi, I heard that the Special Effects were spectacularly good. One of the FX Men is a Dutchman. So our newspapers reported that The Netherlands also kind of won an Oscar:) And the Winner for Best Film Blog is...
