    THE 84TH ANNUAL ACADEMY AWARDS NOMINEES

    Best Picture: ‘The Artist’(Reason: It won almost all best picture awards. PGA Award, BAFTA Award, Golden Globe Award, Critics choice Award…. Do you have any other choice?)
    Best Director: Michel Hazanavicius, ‘The Artist’ (I always say to myself, ‘Your favorite director is Martin Scorsese, so why don’t you choose him as the Best Director for this year’s Oscar? However, as Roger Ebert said, my instinct cries out that Martin Scorsese should win, but I can’t deny that Michel Hazanavicius won Critics Choice, BAFTA, and DGA Award. Similarly, Martin Scorsese won Golden Globe Award for ‘Gangs of New York’ in 2002, but lost to Roman Polanski who won BAFTA and DGA Award. In addition, he already has one Oscar and it’s too early to give him another trophy.)
    Best Actor in a Leading Role: Jean Dujardin, ‘The Artist’ (My initial thought was George Clooney and it was immutable. However, after watching ‘The Artist’, my thought changed. Jean Dujardin can act without voice, but just solely by his facial impressions and behaviors. In my opinion, he makes probably the half of this film. I’ll go with Jean Dujardin – plus, he also won BAFTA, Golden Globe Award, SAG Award, and some critics awards.)
    Best Actress in a Laeding Role: Meryl Streep, ‘The Iron Lady’ (Viola’s performance wasn’t a match for Meryl’s performance which embodies the whole film. Viola, in my opinion, was just a supporting actress, but indeed she led the whole film. She is the vital core of this film. However, Meryl’s performance was outstanding in ‘The Iron Lady’, and her impersonation of British Minister even though she is an American was riveting. I think Academy members will think she now deserves her 3rd Oscar, after her astonishing career which almost spanned about three decades.)  
    Best Actor in a Supporting Role: Christopher Plummer, ‘Beginners’ (No runner-up. No possible upset.)
    Best Actress in a Supporting Role: Octavia Spencer, ‘The Help’ (I actually didn’t like her performance – I favored Jessica Chastain and Bryce Dallas Howard’s performance, but she almost swept all major awards. And her performance as Minny Jackson was quite adorable and I consider it as a true breakthrough performance. I give this to Octavia Spencer.)
    Best Original Screenplay: Woody Allen, ‘Midnight in Paris’ (No doubt that he’ll win. Michel Hazanavicius is just a newcomer, and his screenplay doesn’t reach the subtleness and grandeur of Woody Allen’s writing.)
    Best Adapted Screenplay: Alexander Payne, Nat Faxon & Jim Rash, ‘The Descendants’ (My preference was always ‘Moneyball’, but when it comes to the thoughtful and insightful look at true heart and humankind, this is the answer. I’ll pick ‘The Descendants’. Plus, it is unlikely to win Best Picture, Best Director and Best Actor Oscar, so I think this film will get at least one Oscar for its wonderful screenplay.)  
    Best Film Editing: Thelma Schoonmaker, ‘Hugo’ (I know ‘The Artist’ is a frontrunner, but who can’t deny that this woman is a master of film editing. Martin Scorsese’s films were almost all edited by Thelma Schoonmaker, his long-time friend, and she is likely to get her 4th Oscar for her another fantastic job in ‘Hugo’.)
    Best Art Direction: ‘Hugo’ (Indubitably ‘Hugo’ – the most imaginative and fantastic film of all nominees.)
    Best Cinematography: Emmanuel Lubezki, ‘The Tree of Life’ (If this man doesn’t win, I’ll be really disappointed. His work should be at least once rewarded by Academy Awards, and this is the chance. Moreover, his work in ‘The Tree of Life’, a great masterpiece, was truly respectable.)
    Best Sound Editing: ‘Hugo’ (‘Sound Editing’ and ‘Sound Mixing’ categories will all be won by ‘Hugo’. Many critics predict so, and ‘Hugo’ almost swept all the awards in these technical categories.)
    Best Sound Mixing: ‘Hugo’
    Best Visual Effects: ‘Rise of the Planet of the Apes’ (I really want this film to win – since it deserves more recognition. Finally, it now has chance to be rewarded, with this Visual Effects Award.)
    Best Costume Design: Mark Bridges, ‘The Artist’ (I also liked ‘Jane Eyre’ and ‘Hugo’, but my favorite is ‘The Artist’. Costumes of ‘Anonymous’ were also great.)
    Best Original Score: Ludovic Bource, ‘The Artist’ (What a lovely, adorable score by a newcomer! John Williams has already won five, and Howard Shore’s score which was my favorite isn’t likely to win Oscar now. Furthermore, Howard already has three Oscars in his bag. ‘Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy’? Probably the weakest.)
    Best Makeup: ‘The Iron Lady’ (Meryl Streep was Magaret Thatcher – this could be realized by not only her fantastic acting but also her perfect transformation into this character by flawless makeup.)
    Best Original Song: ‘Man or Muppet’ (‘Man or Muppet’ is charming, great.)
    Best Documentary Feature: ‘Pina’ (‘Paradise Lost 3 : Purgatory will be my runner-up. But I think ‘Pina’ should win, and will definitely win this race.)
    Best Animated Feature: ‘Rango’ (No possible upsets. This is the winner.)
    Best Documentary Short: ‘Saving Face’ (This is what Oscars all about, isn’t it? ‘Saving Face’ was a fantastic documentary – runnerup will be either ‘The Tsunami and Cherry Blossom’ or ‘Incident in New Baghdad’.)
    Best Animated Short: ‘The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore (Wow, I changed my mind. This movie was by far the best among all five nominees.)
    Best Live Action Short Film: ‘Raju’ (My favorite among this year’s nominees. Runner-ups will be ‘The Shore’ and ‘Pentecost’.)
    Best Foreign Language Film: ‘A Separation’ (‘In Darkness’ may be a dark horse, but this film will definitely win. It was perfect.)

    My FINAL predictions- (well, all of them are pretty obvious, and here’s my echoing of the same (mostly)

    Best Picture
    The Artist
    This is winning for sure, and I can imagine a certain GD member exploding. Would be deserving though, and what a site will it be to see a freaking silent-black&white-French film win the BP!

    Directing
    Michel Hazanavicious – The Artist
    Another lock. This french dude will sweep off with the win over all those industry vets. 

    Actor in a Leading Role
    Jean Dujardin – The Artist
    Tough to choose between him and Clooney, but I’ll go with Dujardin, as the overall love for The Artist seems undeniable,but not too much to sweep all. This category however is still a safe bet for the film after BP, Directing, and Score. Would be completely deserved.

    Actress in a Leading Role
    Meryl Streep – The Iron Lady
    I’ll go with my heart and say this will be the one category that will be that ‘shocker’ that no predictor predicted. It’s time she won her 3rd, and I believe all the circumstances this year will eek out a win for her over Davis in a photo finish.

    Actor in a Supporting Role
    Christopher Plummer – Beginners
    Would love to see him getting a nice standing ovation, and delivering a heartfelt, funny speech.

    Actress in a Supporting Role
    Octavia Spencer – The Help
    I hope she has the humility to at least mention Chastain in her speech. Spoiler – Melissa McCarthy.

    Animated Feature Film
    Rango

    Art Direction
    Hugo

    Cinematography
    Emmanuel Lubezki – The Tree of Life

    Costume Design
    Sandy Powell – Hugo

    Documentary (Feature)
    Paradise Lost 3: Purgatory

    Film Editing
    Thelma Shoonmaker – Hugo

    Foreign Language Film
    A Separation (Iran)

    Makeup
    The Iron Lady

    Music (Original Score)
    Ludovic Bource – The Artist

    Music (Original Song)
    Sergio Mendes, Carlinhos Brown, & Siedah Garrett – “Real in Rio” from Rio
    I’ll go with the one I liked.

    Sound Editing
    Hugo

    Sound Mixing
    War Horse

    Visual Effects
    Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2
    I’m suing them if they don’t award HP for this final, final chance.

    Writing (Adapted Screenplay)
    Alexander Payne, Nat Faxon, & Jim Rash – The Descendants
    I’ll pick this, I’ve watched this movie three times now, and it just gets better and better each time.

    Writing (Original Screenplay)
    Woody Allen – Midnight in Paris
    Even if they loved The Artist, many voters with their stupid, kinda funny assumption that it didn’t have a real screenplay would likely vote for the next best choice, MiP.

    This will be very much like last year in terms of how many wins the BP, and others get. I can see The Artist sweeping, and it will get at best getting 5, that’s it. Final tally-

    The Artist – 4
    Hugo – 4
    The Descendants – 1
    The Help – 1
    Midnight in Paris -1
    The Tree of Life – 1
    War Horse – 1
    Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close – 0
    Moneyball – 0

    The Iron Lady – 2
    Beginners – 1
    Harry Potter and Deathly Hallows Part II – 1
    The Muppet/Rio – 1 (hehe)

    Guys you are all dillusional about the visual effects category and I am calling it now…No film has been nominated for Best Picture and not won this category.  Hugo would be the first…check out my blog post,

    http://eternalthoughtsofkevinsmind.blogspot.com/2012/02/academy-awards-week-best-visual-effects.html 

    While I would prefer to see HP or Apes, the winner is going to be Hugo, even Benjamin Button (a best picture nominee) beat The Dark Knight and Iron Man…such an awful win.

    THE 84TH ANNUAL ACADEMY AWARDS NOMINEES

    Actor in a Leading Role
    Jean Dujardin – The Artist

    This is the performance that voters are truly passionate about. His Golden Globe, SAG and BAFTA crowns damn near assure him the prize. George Clooney would be quite a nice surprise but I highly doubt it, despite the Drama Globe- he won recently in 2005 in the Supporting category, and the buzz for The Descendants is dying down. 


    Actor in a Supporting Role
    Christopher Plummer – Beginners

    Im going back to Plummer- even I cant deny his steamboat right now. Sorry Max.

    Actress in a Leading Role
    Meryl Streep – The Iron Lady

    A race many say is over and that Viola Davis has sewn up. I refuse to buy into it. I still think Streep has a fighting chance
    and that her Drama Golden Globe, New York Film Critics and BAFTA win prove this, not to mention Harvey Weinstein’s
    heavy campaign. Yes The Help is a Best Picture nominee…so? Once again, La vie En Rose, Monster and Walk the Line
    were not, and their female stars still won. I know Davis is the (slight) favorite, but I have put too much of my energies into
    Streep winning, and it has been 29 years…and she does give the best performance of her nominees. Streep for the win.


    Actress in a Supporting Role
    Octavia Spencer – The Help

    I really want Melissa McCarthy to triumph, but this one pretty much is Spencer’s to lose. Good for her, I enjoyed her very much.

    Animated Feature Film
    Rango

    Yeppers. 

    Art Direction
    Hugo

    Cinematography
    Emmanuel Lubezki – The Tree of Life

    Based on last year’s triumph with Inception upsetting True Grit, I think its safe to say voters really vote with what they
    think is best here, and The Tree of Life seems to fit that bill. Watch out for The Artist though.


    Costume Design
    Sandy Powell – Hugo

    I’d say Sandy has her Oscar for this one.

    Directing
    Michel Hazanavicious – The Artist

    I thought Marty had his second Oscar in the bag, but once DGA went for Hazanavicious it was over. Terrence Malick
    is another liable threat, but I say the Best Picture frontrunner also takes the helmer’s prize.


    Documentary (Feature)
    Pina

    No clue, really.

    Documentary (Short Subject)
    The Barber of Birmingham: Foot Soldier of the Civil Rights Movement

    Film Editing
    Anne-Sophie Bion & Michel Hazanavicious – The Artist

    Foreign Language Film
    A Separation (Iran)

    This category is prone to upsets, and even though I am picking A Separation based soley on the fact its also up for 
    Best Actor & Original Screenply, don’t be shocked if it ends up losing.

    Makeup
    The Iron Lady

    Harry Potter could spoil.

    Music (Original Score)
    Howard Shore – Hugo

    I’m going to go out on a limb here and say Howard Shore takes it for the epic Hugo vs. The Artist winning like most are saying.

    Music (Original Song)
    Bret McKenzie – “Man or Muppet” from The Muppets

    Best Picture
    The Artist

    I knew this was winning the moment it triumphed at the Golden Globes. And considering the Drama Golden Globe hasn’t 
    matched the Oscars for the past two years, I’m betting The Descendants and Hugo both won’t be able to gain enough
    votes to trump the silent mega film.


    Short Film (Animated)

    La Luna

    Short Film (Live Action)
    Tuba Atlantic

    Sound Editing
    War Horse

    Gotta give this something, right?

    Sound Mixing
    Hugo 

    Visual Effects
    Hugo

    Writing (Adapted Screenplay)
    Alexander Payne, Nat Faxon, & Jim Rash – The Descendants

    Writing (Original Screenplay)
    Woody Allen – Midnight in Paris

    Money is on The Artist- I’m saying Woody Allen brings home his third writing Oscar for his most critically acclaimed film in years.

    Editing and costume design are two Oscars that THE ARTIST can easily win if there’s a silent french movie sweep…

    I think you mean no film nominated for both Best Picture and Best Visual Effects has ever lost the latter award.

    If it is, that’s not true; Master & Commander, Apollo 13, Patton, and those are only the ones I remember.
