The NBR winners... let's see how I did

... and I actually did GREAT!!!, guessing 3 out of 6 main categories and a total of 4/7 predicted ones.

Less than 24 hours ago I've announced my predictions, and here are the winners:

Best Picture: The Social Network - I wouldn't have guessed it, I thought they will go with something more emotional.

Best Director: David Fincher, The Social Network - PREDICTED.

Best Actor: Jesse Eisenberg, The Social Network - this wouldn't have even made my top 10... I am looking at past winners: it's the FIRST TIME the NBR is making such an unusual choice for Best Actor, considering they always go for the Clooney, Eastwood, Freeman, Penn type.

Best Actress: Lesley Manville, Another Year - PREDICTED. I'm really congratulating myself for this, because Portman and Bening really seemed strong choices also.

Best Supporting Actor: Christian Bale, The Fighter - PREDICTED. You can say: of course Bale! But truth is: NBR usually goes against Oscar buzz in this category. It was one of the very few last year not having Waltz as the winner.

Best Supporting Actress: Jacki Weaver, Animal Kingdom - 2nd runner-up on my list! They like showy indeed.

Best Breakthrough (for the first time they've combined Male & Female): Jennifer Lawrence, Winter's Bone - PREDICTED.

I doubt I'll ever do this good again.
The Social Network speeping was quite surprising right?
127 Hours didn't even make the Top 10 Best Film list, which is troubling.

***OT: I might not have Internet in the next couple of days, so the regular BA stuff might be a few days delayed. Otherwise, all cool. ***

What did you think of Jacki Weaver's performance? I liked it, but she wasn't as great as some say.
