So tomorrow/today is the big day, or not so big as the case may be. No matter how the Oscars pan out though, one thing is for sure... it's my mom's b-day! Wish her a good one!
HAPPY HAPPY HAPPY HAPPY LOVELY WONDERFUL FANTASTIC BIRTHDAY!
So in case you are interested, here's what I think will win tomorrow at the Oscars (I said think, not want)...
- Best Documentary - Man on Wire
- Best Foreign Language Film - Waltz with Bashir
- Best Animated Feature Film - WALL-E
- Best Original Song - Jai Ho (Slumdog Millionaire)
- Best Original Score - Slumdog Millionaire
- Best Achievement in Make-Up - The Curious Case of Benjamin Button
- Best Achievement in Costume Design - The Duchess
- Best Adapted Screenplay - Doubt
- Best Original Screenplay - In Bruges
- Best Director - Danny Boyle (Slumdog Millionaire)
- Best Supporting Actress - Penelope Cruz (Vicky Cristina Barcelona)
- Best Supporting Actor - Heath Ledger (The Dark Knight)
- Best Actress - Kate Winslet (The Reader)
- Best Actor - Sean Penn (Milk)
- Best Picture of the Year - Slumdog Millionaire
These aren't all the categories of course, just the ones I feel I have a good handle on predictions for. So place your bets now, and lets see how it all turns out! Despite many movie-goers/bloggers lack of excitement about the awards this year, I still remain optimistic that it'll be a fun show. And who knows, there may still be a few surprises yet...
Also CONGRATS to all the winners of the 2009 Independent Spirit Awards! A little disappointed that Rachel Getting Married didn't win best pic, but The Wrestler was a great movie, and you guys deserved it (I guess).
- Check out MTV's on set visit to Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince. I am daily getting more and more excited for this movie!! Although a little nervous that they apparently added in a big scene not from the book...
- In a Dream looks both terrifying and beautiful. The documentary follows mural artist Isaiah Zagar as his life begins to implode.
Don't expect any Oscar blogging tomorrow as I will be watching at a friend's house and away from my beloved laptop. See y'all Monday, and if you did make any bets, I hope you win!
