The Oscar Post

Okay, I’ve seen enough of the films to make my ~infallible~ judgements. Here are mine and and those of my Favorite Movie Buddy, Kelly. Where he and I disagree, his picks are in parentheses:

  • Original Screenplay
    I’ll be rooting for: Memento
    It will lose to: It won’t.

  • Adapted Screenplay
    I’ll be rooting for: Ghost World
    It will lose to: In the Bedroom (Lord of the Rings)

  • Visual Effects
    I’ll be rooting for: AI (Lord of the Rings)
    It will lose to: It won’t. (Lord of the Rings)

  • Sound
    I’ll be rooting for: Moulin Rouge (Lord of the Rings)
    It will lose to: Black Hawk Down (Lord of the Rings)

  • Editing
    I’ll be rooting for: Memento
    It will lose to: It won’t. (Lord of the Rings)

  • Costume Design
    I’ll be rooting for: Moulin Rouge
    It will lose to: It won’t.

  • Cinematography
    I’ll be rooting for: Lord of the Rings
    It will lose to: It won’t.

  • Art Direction
    I’ll be rooting for: Moulin Rouge
    It will lose to: Amelie (and I won’t be very sad) (Kel sez Moulin Rouge will take it.)

  • Animated Feature Film
    I’ll be rooting for: A Disney exec to break his fucking neck on the way to the podium. (Kel is rooting for Shrek, and thinks it will win. I hope he’s right.)

  • Music (song)
    I’ll be rooting for: Lord of the Rings
    It will lose to: Whatever is the most insipid. (Kel sez LotR will take it, which probably says something about my musical taste.)

  • Music (score)
    I’ll be rooting for: Lord of the Rings
    It will lose to: It won’t.

  • Makeup
    I’ll be rooting for: A Beautiful Mind (LotR)
    It will lose to: Lord of the Rings

  • Foreign Language Film
    I’ll be rooting for: Amelie
    It will lose to: Ha, as if.

  • Supporting Actress
    I’ll be rooting for: Maggie Smith
    She will lose to: Jennifer Connelly

  • Supporting Actor
    I’ll be rooting for: Ben Kingsley (Ian McKellan)
    He will lose to: No way. (Jim Broadbent)

  • Best Actress
    I’ll be rooting for: Halle Berry (Nicole Kidman)
    She will lose to: Sissy “I don’t do accents” Spacek

  • Best Actor
    I’ll be rooting for: Will Smith (Russell Crowe)
    He will lose to: Russell “I do accents” Crowe

  • Directing
    I’ll be rooting for: Peter Jackson
    He will lose to: I don’t think he will. Fingers crossed.

  • Best Picture
    I’ll be rooting for: Moulin Rouge (LotR)
    It will lose to: Lord of the Rings
  • The Kelster, John-John, and I will do our usual Oscar watching thang. Kel and I will compete ferociously for the most correct predictions. My correct prediction: he will win.

      Yay! Kelly finally started leaving comments!

      I was wanting to add your stuff to my list. I’ll do that now.

      I think LOTR is the best movie, and Peter Jackson is the best director. I also agree with you that Amelie is the best foreign movie.
