The 2008 Oscars!

The big upset of the night will be the Best Actress award.

Marion Cotillard will take the award. Most people seem to be betting on Julie Christie, whom I love, or the Juno star. But I'm predicting Marion Cotillard for her performance as Edith Piaf in "La Vie En Rose". Vive la France!

Then, the Oscar goes to:

Best Actor: Daniel Day Lewis for "There Will Be Blood" (I mean, how often is a real actor nominated for this award?)

Best Actor in a Supporting Role: Philip Seymour Hoffman for "Charlie Wilson's War" (He should win. He is probably one of the very best actors ever.)

Best actress in a Supporting Role: Cate for "I'm Not There" (She should win. Ruby Dee wasn't acting - she really is that old.)

Best Picture: "No Country For Old Men"

Director: the Coen Brothers, "No Country For Old Men" (I know! It's rare best pic and director both get the Oscar - but this year they have no other choice.)

Best original Screenplay: "Juno"

And just for Cathy:

Makeup: "La Vie En Rose"

Costume: "Sweeney Todd"

If I am wrong on any of these, the Academy made the mistake, not me.

  1. For Nominations,
    Achievement in Music Written for Motion Pictures (Original Song)it has to be:

    "Falling Slowly"
    Music and Lyric by Glen Hansard and Marketa Irglova

  2. The real question is:

    Just when the heck is "Soli-terry Terry" seen in a theater before these Oscar nominees come out as DVD's to the voters?

    I got it! Terry must be a voter! He has been keeping it a secret that he was one of the actors in the famous Star Wars barroom scene and got his "voter registration card" that way.

    So he gets copies of all the movies with his official ballot.

    I wonder what it would take to get him to invite his pals over to his home theater for previews and catty/cathy comments on costumes, makeup and body imperfections.

  3. Ray - you found me out! LOL!

  4. BTW - if I get all of these correct - I will reveal my secret gift of discernment.

  5. I did not get them all - so my secret remains safe. Whew!

  6. Ter: I can't believe I just saw this post. Sorry. Anyway, I wonder that you associated me with both Edith Piaf and a murderous barber..

  7. No - it was becausse you are so into make-up and fashion.
