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

Directing: What a tough one this is. Not the same as best film. The Social Network is the fave, but I'm a thinkin' True Grit

Documentary (Feature): Gasland

Documentary (Short Subject): The Warriors of Qiugang

Film Editing: 127 Hours

Foreign Language Film: Biutiful

Make Up: Barney's Version

Music (Original) We Belong Together Toy Story 3

Best Picture: Oh, do I HAVE to? Well, I would love Inception, True Grit or The King's Speech. I think it's The Social Network, but...Inception

Short Film (Animated): The Gruffalo

Short Film (Live Action): God of Love

Sound Editing: Inception

Sound Mixing: The King's Speech

Visual Effects: Inception

Writing (Adapted Screenplay): True Grit

Writing (Original Screenplay): The eloquent King's Speech, or the tangled Inception? The King's Speech, by a hair.

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....


  1. HHmmmm. I agree with them all and bow to yourgreater knowledge. Come on Colin!! And something for Inception would be fantastic too. So excited...I won't breather a word (or text) of winners, but it'll be hard!! Love love love xoxoxo

  2. Great predictions! Sadly I can't really add my two cents as many of the films haven't been released here yet. I can't wait to see True Grit, The King's Speech, and The Social Network. I have always been a big Jeff Bridges fan, and Christian Bale is enormously talented. Well, very curious who will win! Thanks for sharing your guess!
