I am so excited for the Oscars. It's one of my hobbies, and I have been following the race since August or September. It's weird how many early frontrunners, like The Master, Leonardo DiCaprio, and Laura Linney, didn't even end up nominated.
Do you have any predictions?
Here are the five categories I'm most certain of: Picture-Argo, Actor-Daniel Day-Lewis, Supporting Actress-Hathaway, Foreign Film-Amour, Visual Effects-Life of Pi.
After those, it's much harder. I have no clue about sound editing, the screenplays, or best supporting actor. It's very up in the air this time.
Of the nominated movies, I've seen Argo, Lincoln, Silver Linings Playbook, Beasts of the Southern Wild, Zero Dark Thirty, and Skyfall. I liked them all, but I'd pick Lincoln best pic.
