And the Oscar goes to......
It's the most wonderful time of the year...
My frock's at the cleaners, the popcorn's in the cupboard. James and Anne are warming up. All radios, computers and tvs are switched off until 8.30pm. No talk of Academy Awards until then please. It's my time to get all the winners wrong. Again. So here goes.....
Best Leading Actor: It has to be King Colin Firth, everyone else was brilliant, but it HAS to be HRH
Actor in a supporting role: It's a toss up between Christian Bale and Geoffrey Rush, but it's Gold for Geoffrey
Actress in a leading role: Natalie Portman is a (ballet) shoe in
Actress in a supporting role: Mmmm, I would love to see Jackie Weaver get this, but it's down to Hailee Steinfeld and the Queen Mum, Helena. I'm going for Hailee
Animated Film: Toy Story 3
Art Direction: Inception, Inception, Inception
Cinematography: True Grit
Costume Design: The King's Speech clothes were divine, but I'm going for the madness of Alice in Wonderland

Short Film (Animated): The Gruffalo
Short Film (Live Action): God of Love
Sound Editing: Inception

So there it is, in all it's glory, my predictions. This time in two days, we will know how wrong I was!
Enjoy the best night of the year, I'll be the one in the front row....
