Even though there isn’t a ceremony this year, there’s still the unbelievably glamorous prospect of a one-hour press release (ho hum), in which the winners will be announced. So, I might as well test my predicting powers:
Best Motion Picture - Drama
No Country for Old Men
Atonement led the pack in terms of nominations received, but recent lack of nominations in other categories has made me fear for its Oscar potential. No Country for Old Men seems to be the movie to back.
Best Actress – Drama
Julie Christie - Away From Her
Veteran actress in meaty role. Go Julie!
Best Actor - Drama
Daniel Lewis - There Will Be Blood
It was between him and Clooney.
Best Motion Picture - Musical Or Comedy
My guess for this was between Juno and Charlie Wilson’s War, though Hairspray could surprise us.
Best Actress - Musical or Comedy
Marion Cotillard - La Vie En Rose
I would love for Adams, Page or Blonsky to surprise me, but Cotillard will get it.
Best Actor - Musical Or Comedy
Johnny Depp - Sweeney Todd
Best Supporting Actor
Casey Affleck - The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford
Best Supporting Actress
Amy Ryan - Gone Baby Gone
Joel and Ethan Coen - No Country for Old Men
Diablo Cody - Juno
Best Foreign Language Film
The Kite Runner (United States)
Best Animated Feature Film
Best Original Score
Best Original Song
"That's How You Know" - Enchanted
