Oscar nominations are in. My predictions follow.

Best Supporting Actress
Penelope Cruz, Nine
Vera Farmiga, Up in the Air
Maggie Gyllenhaal, Crazy Heart
Anna Kendrick, Up in the Air
Mo’nique, Precious

Skinny bitches are evil. Congratulations, Mo’nique.

Best Supporting Actor
Matt Damon, Invictus
Woody Harrelson, The Messenger
Christopher Plummer, The Last Station
Stanley Tucci, The Lovely Bones
Christoph Waltz, Inglourious Basterds

As go the Globes, so goes Oscar? Maybe. Chrisoph Waltz.

Best Actress
Sandra Bullock, The Blind Side
Helen Mirren, The Last Station
Carey Mulligan, An Education
Gabourey Sidibe, Precious
Meryl Streep, Julie & Julia

My heart says Meryl, but I’m pretty sure its Sandy B. in a walk. For a shitty movie.

Best Actor
Jeff Bridges, Crazy Heart
George Clooney, Up in the Air
Colin Firth, A Single Man
Morgan Freeman, Invictus
Jeremy Renner, The Hurt Locker

Jeff Bridges, done and done.

Best Director
James Cameron, Avatar
Kathryn Bigelow, The Hurt Locker
Quentin Tarantino, Inglourious Basterds
Lee Daniels, Precious
Jason Reitman, Up in the Air

I’m calling a split Director/Picture this year. Katherine Bigelow gives the finger to her ex and walks home with a small golden man.

Original Screenplay
Mark Boal, The Hurt Locker
Quentin Tarantino, Inglourious Basterds
Alessandro Camon & Oren Moverman, The Messenger
Joel & Ethan Coen, A Serious Man
Pete Docter, Bob Peterson, & Thomas McCarthy, Up

It’s been a couple of years since the Coen brothers took home awards for Directing and Picture for No Country for Old Men. And the Academy loves them some Coen.

Adapted Screenplay
Neil Blomkamp & Terri Tatchell, District 9
Nick Hornby, An Education
Jesse Armstrong, Simon Blackwell, Armando Ianucci, & Tony Roche, In the Loop
Geoffrey Fletcher, Precious
Jason Reitman & Sheldon Turner, Up in the Air

I’m pulling for District 9.

Foreign Language Film
Ajami (Israel)
El secreto de sus ojos (Argentina)
The Milk of Sorrow (Peru)
Un Prophete (France)
The White Ribbon (Germany)

Seriously, who cares? I’ll go with the Krauts.

Animated Film
Fantastic Mr. Fox
The Princess and the Frog
The Secret of Kells

Up, up and away.

Best Picture
The Blind Side

District 9
An Education
The Hurt Locker
Inglourious Basterds
A Serious Man
Up in the Air

Duh. Congratulations, Avatar.

    • One of the perks of being gay is multiple Christmases. It helps to offset violent homophobia and unfair tax burdens. Or something.

    Three Brits up for Best Actor awards, go Colin Firth! And one for Best Screenplay, “In The Loop” – didn’t like this film, too cynical. Yes, ia m rooting for Collin Firth, he is an amazing actor.
