Oscar predictions

Standard

Well, not one to back down from a challenge, I went out on a limb with this as a response:

Having not see One Single Movie from the entire list, this truly is a Shot In The Dark!

1. No Country for Old Men
2. Juno
3. George Clooney
4. Cate Blanchett
5. Javier Bardem
6. Saoirsee Ronan
7. 3:10 to Yuma

All I will say is that some of this is based on the what I heard from my friend who is a HUGE movie buff and used to write reviews for our local paper. She hated There Will Be Blood and thought DDL was just playing the same role he’s played every other time. So even though he is the presumptive favorite, I went for a long shot on that one.

Plus, um..hey..it’s George! If I lost on that one, I don’t care. It’s GEORGE!!

Sigh…..rowr.

Yes, Jax, I remembered what you told me yesterday!!! Oddly for me, I’ve had the red carpet nonsense on all afternoon too. It helps that it has been a rainy day with my croaky voice so I have been taking it easy doing treasurer chores and napping and sipping tea (I swear I am going to turn into a damn tea bag!). But of course I am watching the main telecast since it is being hosted by Jon Stewart who I adore.

UPDATE – eh, totally guessing and I got 2! Plus, there was plenty of George, and Patrick Dempsey, and Johnny Depp along with Jon Stewart so it was ALL GOOD!!

  1. Ya know, I’m a big fan of the Clooney man, but he looked awful last night. Somewhere I read that he and I are the same age. Last night, he looked like he’d lived hard for 52 years. I asked DH if I looked that old. “No,” was the reply. Good answer. I didn’t see any of the movies nominated for Best Pic either; I guess I’ll wait for the DVD of “No Country For Old Men” now.

    I would have liked to see George Clooney win, but I didn’t think Michael Clayton was the strongest movie there, even though I though it was excellent. And even though it was the only one I’ve seen yet. The reviews I’ve read on the other movies sounded very strong also. I too am just a big fan of his and most of what he does. Except maybe that Batman thing, but I didn’t see that either. :)
