So, as you should know by now, we at the Midlife Crisis Taskforce really like movies. So here’s my Oscar predictions. You should know I’ve seen pitifully few of these movies.
I think it will go to Lincoln. There’s so much hype behind it and it’s a Spielberg film. I think that will sway the academy. In my fantasies, it’s Django Unchained.
Hmmm… It could also go to Daniel Day Lewis. But I’m going to say Bradley Cooper. Dramatic portrayals of broken people usually rally the academy. I’ve got no personal favorite here.
This is a tricky one, but I think it will go to Jennifer Lawrence for the same reason I think Bradley Cooper will get Best Actor. Again, no favorite here
Best Supporting Actor:
My want is for Cristoph Waltz to get it again. I think it’ll go to Phillip Seymour Hoffman because– it’s Phillip Seymour Hoffman!
Best Supporting Actress:
Wow, I think this is going to be a toss-up between Sally Field and Anne Hathaway. But, I’m going to go with Sally Field because it’s Lincoln and everyone already knows what she went through to get the part. If I have any favorite here, it’s Anne Hathaway because I like to look at her. 8)
They’ll give it to Spielberg. No favorite here.
Best Original Song:
I think it’ll be Skyfall. Get ready to be beaten to death by Adele again. I mean, I like her voice– she definitely has the talent. I’m just tired of hearing her same songs every-freaking-where I go. Her aural saturation levels are eclipsing Michael Buble.
So that’s it. These are my predictions. We’ll see how well or poorly I did next week. I mean, I don’t intend to watch the Oscar telecast. It really is one of the most boring 4 hours of Hollywood masturbation they’ll produce. I’m glad this only happens once a year.
No. I’ll be watching Doctor Who on BBC America, thank you very much.
