More Oscar Predictions

Here are all my Oscar predictions for the 2008 Academy Awards (some categories are left blank because I don’t feel I can make an intelligent guess, i.e. for Best Sound Mixing, etc.): FilmJabber’s Oscar predictions. And here are some Academy Award nominations from other websites that I read quite often: Box Office Prophets Crave Online

The Coen Brothers Will Win Best Director

While there are several highly competitive categories at this year’s Academy Awards, Joel and Ethan Coen will win the Oscar for Best Director. If you look at the competitive, there is just no question. Paul Thomas Anderson would be my pick if I were to select the winner, as There Will Be Blood was the […]

Best Picture Oscar Predictions

The day is almost here: the 2008 Academy Awards. For a while, there was fear that this show wouldn’t even exist, but, as one could have predicted, the writer’s strike ended far enough in advance for that not to happen. It’s an incredibly competitive bunch this year, and all films are deserving in some way […]

Who Will Win Best Actor at 2008′s Academy Awards?

Who will win the Oscar for Best Actor at 2008′s Academy Awards? Normally, I would go into an analysis of each actor’s chances and strengths, such as my articles on Best Supporting Actress and Best Supporting Actor, but that really isn’t necessary. I haven’t seen In the Valley of Elah, but I’m sure Tommy Lee […]

2008 Oscar Analysis: Best Supporting Actor

Who will win the Oscar for Best Supporting Actor at this year’s Academy Awards? All I can say is… Holy shit, what a battle! Here are some excerpts from my movie reviews in 2007: “While there are several actors who turn in Oscar worthy performances in the film, it is Javier Bardem who blows everyone […]

2008 Academy Award Analysis: Best Actress Oscar

The Academy Awards are only a week away, which means I better get cranking on my Oscar predictions. Having just watched La Vie en Rose, I have now seen four of the five movies with Oscar-nominated actresses. I have yet to see Laura Linney in The Savages, but I’d be quite surprised if she is […]

2008 Oscar Analysis: Best Supporting Actress

Is there any question that Cate Blanchett is going to win an Oscar for Best Supporting Actress at the 2008 Academy Awards? The actress is by far and away the most powerful person in the category, and her performance the most memorable. Hell, Cate Blanchett is the only reason people went to go see I’m […]

2008 Academy Award Analysis: Best Animated Picture

Which movie will win the Oscar for Best Animated Picture at 2008′s Academy Award show? The nominations are three: Persepolis Ratatouille Surf’s Up As people have surmised from my other posts, Ratatouille is my easy pick for Best Animated Picture. The movie (temporarily) showed up on my Top Ten Movies of 2007, was one of […]

Academy Award Analysis: Best Visual Effects Oscar 2008

With the Oscars fast approaching, I figured I’d better start writing about my Oscar picks and predictions. I’ll start with one of the easier categories, the Best Visual Effects category. For the 2008 Academy Awards, three movies are nominated: Transformers If this one doesn’t win, I’ll shoot someone. Or I’ll punch a pillow. Or I’ll […]

Will Heath Ledger Win an Oscar for The Joker?

I haven’t seen many blogs discussing this, so I thought I’d raise the question: Could Heath Ledger win an Oscar for his portrayal of The Joker in the upcoming Batman movie The Dark Knight? At the very least, could he receive an Oscar nomination? The thought is unlikely – after all, action movies – especially […]

Academy Award Nominations and Picks – Who Will Win at the Oscars?

The Oscars are almost upon us! Sure, the writer’s strike may destroy things, but I’m pretty sure everything will be resolved before February 24th, 2008. Anyway, the Academy Award nominations for 2007 movies were released yesterday, and today I re-launched my Oscar database with all nominees and winners for years 2004 through 2006, and the […]
