Oscar..Oscar...

Tonight. The Glitz. The Glamour. And Chris Rock is hosting! Should be fun :) There's nothing quite like the Oscars to get excited about Hollywood and the movies. I mean, they all love a pat on their own backs, but the Oscars do really mean a lot to movies in general, and to the actors that get the awards, it can go towards making or breaking their careers. My mission to watch all the Best Picture nominations failed miserably, as I only saw The Aviator and Finding Neverland (which was very very good!), but I'll do my best to predict the big awards anyway. I will predict who I think will win and then who I want to win.. Who I want to win: BEST DIRECTOR: Martin Scorcese, "The Aviator" BEST ACTOR: Leonardo DiCaprio, "The Aviator" BEST ACTRESS: Kate Winslet, "Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind" BEST SUPPORTING ACTOR: Morgan Freeman, "Million Dollar Baby" BEST SUPPORTING ACTRESS: Cate Blanchett, "The Aviator" BEST PICTURE: "The Aviator" Who will win: BEST DIRECTOR: Clint Eastwood, "Million Dollar Baby" BEST ACTOR: Jamie Foxx, "Ray" BEST ACTRESS: Hilary Swank, "Million Dollar Baby" BEST SUPPORTING ACTOR: Morgan Freeman, "Million Dollar Baby" BEST SUPPORTING ACTRESS: Virginia Madsen, "Sideways" BEST PICTURE: "The Aviator" And in other awards, "The Incedibles" will easily win best animated film. "The Aviator" should win best Cinematography, and from all reports, "Sideways" will win best adapted screenplay. (that's next on my list of viewing). Jamie Foxx will probably win because of the emotion connected to the role. I haven't yet seen Ray, but I hear he does an excellent performance. I just think that Leo deserves it for his portrayal of Howard Hughes. From all reports, Virginia Madsen is in the lead for the Support Actress gong over 'our' Cate. It'd be a shame though cause Blanchett's 'Hepburn' was flawless. Mind you, I will be on Oscar blackout until the awards are shown on TV tonight. I like the surprise :)
