In the midst of Awards Season, it's important to respect the opinions set forth by those endowed with the task of selecting such entries to win these things. The Grammys this year did a great job with their selections. The Oscars on the other hand...well let's see...
First complaint: NO LEO?!?!?! Are you KIDDING ME?!?! I know he's had more captivating performances, but Calvin Candie was awesome!
Second complaint: NO NOLAN?!?!? I'm not saying it would win, and again I'm not saying it was his best, but The Dark Knight Rises at least deserved a Best Cinematography nod or SOMETHING!
Third complaint:...there's seriously a lot of complaints, but...NO LEO?!?!?
Ok ok, here's who WILL win...
Winner: Amour. Before you start yelling about how good your selection is, understand my theory. Lincoln is coming in with a lot of cred (and noms) BUT as of late, the lead dog doesn't win. Last year, War Horse and The Help were frontrunners ultimately losing out to The Artist. Two years ago, Avatar, which everyone thought was locked in, lost to the surprising Hurt Locker. On that note, Zero Dark Thirty was good, but not good enough this year, Argo is tremendous, but Affleck not getting the Best Director nod sends a message here, and Amour is a surprisingly awesome film. Dont' be mad cause you've not seen it, check it out and you'll learn why.
Winner: Daniel Day-Lewis. This one IS a no-brainer. Much like how Ray wouldn't have been the movie it was were it not for the remarkable performance by Jamie Foxx, Lincoln wouldn't have been Lincoln if it weren't for this gem. He'll get his with this award.
Winner: Alan Arkin. Ohhh I wanted to go with Christoph Waltz here, that guys awesome!! But Arkin delivered a performance I hadn't seen out of him. It was awesome, it outshone Affleck in his own movie. That deserves this title.
Winner: Anne Hathaway. I'm not comfortable with this one, but I'll stand by it. She did great, much like everyone else in that film, it was tremendous. She acted, she sang, she died (so did everyone in that movie). Oscar.
Winner: Brave. Because Pixar.
Winner: Skyfall. It was everything a Bond song should be, in one of the greatest Bond movies of all time. Adele was incredible and it will win. Sidenote, Ted was nominated for this? Let this stand as the first time ever Seth MacFarlane has had his name next to 'original'.
Winner: The Invisible War. It was the only one I saw...
So there's my pics. Who knows what will happen, that's half of what makes this whole process fun!
