So unless you’ve been living under a rock, then you know the 83rd Annual Academy Awards are tonight and I feel compelled before I go get ready to cover an Oscar party, to put my two cents into who I think will win some of the categories tonight.
I really believe that “The King’s Speech” is going to take home the Oscar. It is an amazing movie with a spectacular cast who all give award-winning performances.
Actor In A Leading Role
Hands down the academy should give it to Colin Firth for “The King’s Speech”. While the other nominees when really good. You have to give Firth some serious respect as through the entire movie he has to act like he is stuttering, which looks amazingly hard.
Actor In A Supporting Role
I would be really surprised if Christian Bale didn’t win this award for “The Fighter“. Whether you like him or hate him, he really is a remarkable actor who gives 100% to every role he’s in. If you have seen “The Fighter” then I am pretty sure you’ll agree that he stole the show.
Actress In A Leading Role
While watching “Black Swan ” was confusing at times, I really think it was Natalie Portman’s best work. You couldn’t help but watch her character fall deeper on to the crazy train.
Actress In A Supporting Role
This is the toughest category to choose a winner. While I loved Helena Bonham Carter in “The King’s Speech” and Hailee Steinfeld in “True Grit“, I am going to have to go with Melissa Leo in “The Fighter”. Her performance was exceptional and rivaled Christain Bale’s performance in the same movie.
This is another tough category, but I really think “The Social Network” could take this award. Anyone who has seen it knows how great the movie is. I expect to win at least a few awards.
Hands down “The Social Network” will take this for the win. It won at the Writers Guild Awards. So it’s safe to say it has this award locked in.
This is an easy category as ‘Inception“, one of the most original movies I have seen a while, will win the Oscar. Like “The Social Network” also won big at the Writers Guild Award.
“Toy Story 3” will sweep this award. I mean who didn’t cry or tear up when watching it?
