A question: in your separate Best Actress post you predicted Meryl Streep (which you admitted was going with your heart) but here you said Sandra Bullock. Does that mean you’ve reconsidered your earlier preidiction?
We all want it to be “The Hurt Locker” but I say “Avatar” will win. Of course, if “The Hurt Locker” nabs Best Picture…YES!!! Everything else is a long shot, sadly.
Best Foreign Language Film I also disagree with Roeper. The Academy voters need to have seen all the foreign nominees, and I have a feeling that in such a context, “A Prophet” is going to be favored just as it was favored only a millimeter more at the Cannes Film Festival over “The White Ribbon”. I mean, it’s America, and they are going to pick the French gangster film over the cold, austere German parable. Don’t get me wrong though. I think “The White Ribbon” deserves to win as much as the other guy.
You are wrong on editing – Hurt Locker will win it because it will win Best Picture – they go hand in hand…also, sorry, but the Prophet will win Foreign…otherwise, fairly good picks. I’m betting Hurt Locker sweeps with 5, Avatar next up with 4…
I think your initial prediction of Meryl Streep winning best actress over Sandra Bullock will turn out to be true. It’s pretty daring of me to make this statement since I have yet to see either movie but I feel that the academy will reward Streep for a more complete performance. Bullock’s momentum right now seems to be fueled only by hype. Oh, And the movies box office success. Oh, And it’s best picture nomination. Oh, and it’s inspirational story. Oh, and the fact that she’s Sandra Bullock, who has never received a nomination and may never again. Wait one more… she’s the odds-on favorite right now. Okay so my arguement for Streep is not very strong. It’s barely an argument at all really. I just have a gut feeling that Streep will pull off the upset. Again, I have not seen either movie, which makes makes my prediction almost invalid, but I have vigorously studied the trailers for both movies, and the five second clips shown at different award shows. Would this make my prediction extremely impressive or just bull-shit. Probably the latter.
Sorry IrmaCMD, but Mr. Roeper is right about ‘ The White Ribbon’.
