    I think “Michelle Williams, Oscar winner” has a nice ring to it, don’t you?

     

    Hey, she’s playing a real-life character. That’ll help her, eh?

    I am rooting Viggo Mortensen.  It is shocking to me that he only has 1 nomination as he should have been nominated for A History of Violence and The Road.

     

    Assuming Super 8 is actually good, I will also be rooting for J.J. Abrams to get a nomination somehow.

    David Fincher for The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. Here’s to hoping he’ll at least get a nomination. Given that it’s a Fincher film, it has to be highly acclaimed by critics for him to get nominated.

    Super 8 looks nostalgic and intense and terrific. In hope that the trailer did not over-sell the film, I’ll be rooting for it. It is will a summer event and hopefully will carry that momentum to the Oscars.

     

    I’m always rooting for Meryl Streep, but Glenn Close has never won, and Albert Nobbs is unequivocally a personal project of hers. If that doesn’t get her an Academy Award, well then… Looks like she won’t ever be winning one. Besides, I’m hoping out hope for Streep in August: Osage County, which I hope is held back until 2012.

     

    Michael Fassbender is also a man who has been paying his dues with some really great performances. I’m crossing my fingers that the guy finally gets a nomination (and a much-deserved push into mainstream, moreso than he already is).

    To win again, Meryl Streep needs a good crying scene like she did the teary-eyed thing in “Sophie’s Choice.” “Julie and “Julia” didn’t have that. I can’t imagine Meryl as Maggie Thatcher the Milk Snatcher shedding any tears on screen. Maggie’s known as the Iron Lady for a reason.

    Who else but Meryl Streep?

     

    She’s the Queen!

     

    If Michelle Williams does Marilyn Monroe justice, she’d deserve to win.

     

    Amy Adams is one of my current favorites but I hope her Janis Joplin performance WOWs. However, I doubt the Oscars would reward Adams as a lead. Supporting seems more realistic.

    I can’t root for anyone but Glenn Close. I’m hoping so badly that Albert Knobbs is a huge hit because if not, then I don’t know if Glenn Close will ever be bringing the little golden man home.  Adding to the odds against her is within the past two years it’s gone to the star of a huge box office hit (Black Swan, The Blind Side).  

    With that being said, Michelle Williams is inches away from being an Oscar winner.  She managed to be nominated for Blue Valentine in a very competitive year, and this, to me, speaks vastly about how huge she is on people’s radars.

    Meryl Streep? I just don’t know if The Iron Lady is garner that elusive third Oscar for her.  I’m not opposed to it.

    I would love to see Glenn Close back in the race, it’s been twenty-three years since her last nomination and as far as I’m concerned should be reading the same scripts Streep does. As for Streep, who knows if she will ever win again, she’s more likley to be the Queen of Nominations, not wins at this point. But hey, sixteen nominations has secured your place in the history books in terms of films, I wonder if she even cares at this point. I’ve never heard her say it mattered much to her, there are actors and actresses who have spoken of how important it is to win. Oscar winner Michelle Williams sounds nice, she’s really on the right track in terms of her acting. But Oscar winner Glenn Close, at this stage, sounds even better.

     

    And for those who haven’t yet earned a nomination at this point, Oscar winner Gary Oldman would have been nice awhile back.

    Well Anthony Hopkins didnt shed a tear either, Tom.

    Have you noticed how Christopher Nolan’s Batman actors all seem to have a hold on the Supporting Actor category? Michael Caine (2x), Morgan Freeman, Heath Ledger, Christian Bale.  With this trend going, Aaron Eckhart and the way overdue Gary Oldman should have their moment soon.

    I hope that Leonardo DiCaprio can finally win one, as J. Edgar.
