Here are my predictions for my favourite categories for the 2010, Academy Awards.
Best Movie – Avatar The Hurt Locker
Best Director – James Cameron Kathryn Bigelow
Best Actor – Jeff Bridges in Crazy Heart
Best Actress – Sandra Bullock in The Blind Side
Best Supporting Actor – Christoph Waltz in Inglorious Basterds
Best Supporting Actress – Mo’Nique in Precious: Based on the Novel ‘Push’ by Sapphire
Best Animated Feature Film – Up
Best Visual Effects – Avatar
Best Writing – Inglorious Basterds The Hurt Locker
Best Cinematography – The Hurt Locker Avatar
Of course I will most likely not get them all right. What do you think will win in each category?
The 82nd Annual Academy Awards will be televised on Monday, 8 March 2010 in Australia.
Update – So I lost out on some of them. I saw The Hurt Locker and didn’t think it was that great a movie. Certainly not from a writing point of view especially considering the competition from Inglorious Basterds which I feel was the stand out in the nominated films.
I also didn’t think Avatar was great. It was good, but not great. The visual effects were amazing and it fully deserved that Oscar but the story line was predictable and I feel this resulted in the ‘good’ rating rather than a ‘great’ rating.
I can now look forward to another years worth of movies being the great movie buff I am. We’ll see how many I can get right next year.
