Best Picture? I havent seen some of the entries... but from what I have seen... it should be Hurt Locker... although Avatar has a bigger following... and personally... I am rooting for Up! Although I know it is a lost cause...

Best Director? Kathryn Bigelow perhaps? But I have a gut feeling they will Give it to James Cameron... although Lee Daniels did a fine job with Precious...

Best Actor? I want to give it to Jeff Bridges... but I have a feeling it will be Jeremy Renner

Best Actress? I want to give it to Sandra Bullock... but I somehow doubt it...

Supporting Actor? I want to give it to Christopher Waltz... Matt Damon is #2....

Supporting Actress? Couldnt tell ya...

Animated Feature? Got to be Up!... but Fantastic Mr. Fox has a good chance for a win....

I have a sneaking suspicion Cameron is going to win the Best Director. I think he deserves it and it'd be worth it for all the obnoxious Avatar haters reactions.

Yay James Cameron fail.

Well, the Hurt Locker cleaned up I guess. Most of the awards were predictable.. heck all of them were.

What about this year? Anybody unhappy with the results? Cause i'm pretty happy with the fact that Colin Firth FINALLY got an oscar! The man deserves it! Especially after A Single Man!
