Oscars Predictions

The Oscars are coming up and thought I’d throw out my predictions on 6 biggies, because well the others don’t matter really.  And why is there a best picture and best director?  Shouldn’t those 2 be intertwined?  So I’ll be making picks on Picture, Actor, Actress, Sup Actor, Sup Actress and Animated movie.  Of the 10 movies nominated for Best Picture I’ve only seen 3(Inception, The Social Network, Toy Story 3), want to see 3 others (127 Hours, True Grit, The Fighter), the other four I guarantee I won’t watch.  I did see the Golden Globes though so I kind of have an idea of what movies are rolling in the awards.

Below my predictions are all the nominees.
Best Picture –  Kings Speech wins, though I think The Social Network/Fighter/True Grit could upset…and how did Jerry Maguire ever get nominated for an Oscar?
Best Actor – Jeff Bridges – going for the upset, back to back, and he was screwed by the Golden Globes
Best Actress – Annett Bening, don’t know why, she won the Globe
Best Sup Actor – Christian Bale, won the Globe, Batman gets the Oscar!
Best Sup Actress – Amy Adams, her co-star won the Golden Globe, she gets the Oscar.
Best Animated – Toy Story 3, slam dunk though I did like How to Train Your Dragon
