HAPPY BIRTHDAY MOM! (and Happy Oscar day!)

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!


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!
