Oscar Noms = Epic Fail (Again)

Postby LOLtron » Thu Jan 22, 2009 12:22 pm

Well the Academy blew it again, yet I'm going to sit there watching the awards, waiting for someone to apologize for giving the Best Picture Oscar to Chariots of Fire over Raiders of the Lost Ark. Let's run through the few categories that people actually care about. So I'm going to go through this list and predict who will win and who I want to win. I haven't seen all these movies, so I am basing this on people I like. If you don't like it, go watch Oprah or something

Best Actor
Who will win: Mickey Rourke (WTF?)
Who should win: Mickey Rourke (Seriously, Mickey Rourke?)

Richard Jenkins in The Visitor
Frank Langella in Frost/Nixon
Sean Penn in Milk
Brad Pitt in The Curious Case of Benjamin Button
Mickey Rourke in The Wrestler

Best Supporting Actor

Who will win: Heath Ledger
Who should win: Heath Ledger (I think it would be hilarious if Downey Jr. won)

Josh Brolin in Milk
Robert Downey Jr. in Tropic Thunder
Philip Seymour Hoffman in Doubt
Heath Ledger in The Dark Knight

Who will win: Kate Winslet

Anne Hathaway in Rachel Getting Married
Angelina Jolie in Changeling 
Melissa Leo in Frozen River
Meryl Streep in Doubt

Best Supporting Actress

Who will win: Viola Davis
Who should win: Marisa Tomei (So people can stop saying her first win was a mistake)

Amy Adams in Doubt
Penelope Cruz in Vicky Cristina Barcelona
Viola Davis in Doubt
Taraji P. Henson in The Curious Case of Benjamin Button
Marisa Tomei in The Wrestler

Best Director

Who will win: Danny Boyle
Who should win: Christopher Nolan (Fuck you Academy!)
