I haven’t seen any of these films either, but here’s my random guesses at who’s going to win:
Best Picture: Past experience tells me Lincoln, but Argo has been cleaning up at the other award ceremonies, so I’m going to go with it. If it loses, I’d expect controversy.
Best Director: This typically goes to the director of the film that wins Best Picture. Argo‘s director isn’t up for it, so this could be Steven Spielberg’s to lose. However, my gut tells me it’ll be Ang Lee for Life of Pi, which might erase all the damage he did to his reputation with that Incredible Hulk fiasco.
Best Actor: Daniel Day-Lewis is a lock for this one.
Best Actress: I don’t know about this one. I’d love to see the young girl Quvenzhané Wallis from Beasts of the Southern Wild win this, but it probably won’t happen. I’m gonna go with Naomi Watts cause she’s the most recognized name.
Best Makeup and Hair Styling: Seriously, they give an award for this?! I’m going with Lisa Westcott and Julie Dartnell of Les Miserables just cause. Good luck, ladies!!
