New Set of Oscar Predictions

Tomorrow they’re gonna announce the SAG nominations and that’s a big deal. I wanted to get these predictions out before that; I actually update them at least once a week, I just don’t get to post them. Not much to comment on them. I’m going with The Artist, given the recent wave of love – I hope it doesn’t happen to me like in the previous season when I switched to Social Network (after cheering for King’s Speech for a long time) just because it won all those critics’ awards. I still feel like the race isn’t over and War Horse still has a shot.

Anyway, here they are: the predicted winners plus rest of nominees (in the order of their chances of getting nominated)…

There's no way Redgrave will win.Academy would never gave acting Oscar to film like Coriolanus.If she misses SAG nom,she's finished.And i think even if she gets nominated tomorrow,she'll be last year's Duvall.Streep doesn't look to me as a winner either.British people hate Thatcher,so i guess Bafta isn't certain for her.British block might support Williams(film is shot in UK with mostly UK cast).Davis will have "black block" behind her...i think Williams will win SAG,and will prevail at Oscars(many voters will have Blue Valentine in mind).Plummer is certain winner,and i think Pitt will win Oscar,although Clooney still has a chance.

I don't now if it's just me, but I think that this year is really crowded, especially in the Actress and Supporting Actress.

Contenders for Nominations:

Picture - 15
Actor - 10
Actress - 15 (VERY STRONG!)
Supp. Actor - 7
Supp. Actress - 10 (VERY STRONG!)

well... many things I don't agree with in what you wrote.

after today, I'd say Supporting Actor is the one all over the place. :)
