Oscar Nominations

Ooh I love the Oscars. Here are the Nominations and my guesses:

Best Film

Slumdog Millionaire

The Curious Case of Benjamin Button



The Reader

My Choice: I think they are all borrrinnnngg. I’ll go for Milk because I like Milk in my tea.

Probably will win: The Reader (because it’s about war! death! destruction! Kate Winslet’s Chi Chis!)

Best Actress

Anne Hathaway – Rachel Getting Married

Angelina Jolie – The Changeling

Melissa Leo – Frozen River

Kate Winslet – The Reader

Meryl Streep – Doubt

My Choice: Angelina, because Angelina, in her acceptance speech will say, “Thanks to the ladies, Anne *evil look*, Melissa, Meryl and – what’s the other one? Oh yeah, Kim. Kate, I mean Kate”.

Probably will win: It’s Kate Winslet’s year, she’s been waiting for so long.

Best Actor

Mickey Rourke- The Wrestler

Frank Langhella – Frost/Nixon

Sean Penn – Milk

Richard Jenkins – The Visitor

Brad Pitt – The Curious Case of Benjamin Button

My Choice: Mickey! He was so good in the wrestler. Did you know they nearly got Sly Stallone or Nicholas Cage to do it? Urgh.

Probably will win: Sean Penn. I have a feeling.

Best Supporting Actress

Marisa Tomei – The Wrestler

Penelope Cruz – Vicky Cristina Barcelona

Amy Adams – Doubt

Viola Davis – Doubt

Taraiji P Henson – the Curious Case of Benjamin Button

My Choice: What? Out of this lot. I’ll go for Amy Adams because she was so cute in Enchanted.

Probably will win: Penelope – and hopefully after this she’ll stop playing the doped-up-over-emotional-psychotic-spanish-girlfriend-who-cries-and-screams-a-lot.

Best Supporting Actor

Heath Ledger – The Dark Knight

Philip Seymour Hoffman – Doubt

Josh Brolin – Milk

Robert Downey Jr – Tropic Thunder

Michael Shannon – Revolutionary Road

My Choice: Robert Downey Jr should win every competition he enters

Probably Will Win: Heath, Heath, Heath.

    I can’t believe The Dark Knight was not nominated for Best Picture! It’s not a brilliant movie, but at least I was able to sit through the whole thing (which is more than I can say for Slumdog Millionaire). Seriously, I failed to make it through the first five minutes of Danny Boyle’s film, and you know how much I love Anil Kapoor!

    Robert Downey Jr IS brilliant; I can’t believe he wasn’t nominated for Best Actor for his work in Iron Man (don’t laugh, it was a good performance). That said, I think Heath deserves that posthumous Supporting Actor Oscar.

      Hi Pandy!

      I’m glad I’m not the only one who didn’t love Slumdog! I’ve got a feeling it will win a lorra lorra prizes though! Annoying or what.

    Haha I love what you said about Kate/Angelina. It would be so funny to see that. I think the Oscars aired in the early hours of the morning here so I missed them. Oh well. 😛
