Now to be completely honest I don't think words can describe how excited I am for what's about to go down on Sunday! I'm probably wasting my time blogging about it because how do I convey all the excitement I have in me to this one little page??? I will try... First off, we get TWO hosts this year. And folks, these are two of our greatest entertainers IN HISTORY! I grew up on Steve Martin and Alec Baldwin has transformed himself from an A-list actor to an absolute GENIUS OF COMEDY!!! He is the reason I watch TV. For these two to come together and host the Oscars of all things, well let's just say that's the best thing to happen to Benji since the invention of those dollar movie rental machines they pit in front of grocery stores, I love those! ...Or the announcement of a fifth Die Hard installment(that's right, I just heard that recently) Suffice it to say I'm pretty juiced for these two legends to be up there together. On to the predictions...Okay, so I gotta be completely honest here, I wish with all my heart Inglorious Basterds would walk away with the Best Picture award and many more, that was a film of true originality and a level of entertainment blended with ONE HELL OF A STORY, plus I really LOVE BRAD PITT!!! With that said, I'm pretty sure Avatar will walk away with the Best Picture award, although if there's any one else that's gonna take it's gonna be The Hurt Locker and rightfully so. That film was an adrenaline rush I wont soon forget. If Avatar wins Best Pic, then I think Best Director will go to Kathryn Bigalow. She's been in the game for a long time and directed one of my all time favorite action movies, POINT BREAK! I think that alone should get her an Oscar! But seriously, she will probably win if Avatar takes the cake, it could always go to James Cameron too or vise versa but that's kinda unlikely. My man Jeff Bridges is a lock, and HELL YEAH for that one...Who doesn't LOVE Jeff Bridges. I just recently rented and watched The Last Picture Show in honor of my man Mr. Bridges. He's had an unbelievable career in film and isn't slowin down one bit. He'll get his due on Sunday! The Best Actress is a tricky one. I wanna say Sandra will get it, and good for her, She's great. But if there's any surprise there it will go to the woman, the myth, the legend Meryl Streep. But that could also split voters apart and the wonderful Gabourey Sidibe from Precious could wind up a surprise pick. What a performance from that woman. But I honestly think Sandra will take it. Monique is also a lock for supporting actress and the same goes for my man Christoph Walz for his ridiculous show stealing performance in the MASTERPIECE Inglorious Basterds ( wow, I really like this movie huh!) I would like to add how cool I think it is to see Woody Harrelson nominated for the second time in his great career. I love you Woody! Best Original Screenplay should go to Quentin Tarantino (YAY) if that doesn't happen I'll be spitting at the television and ripping my hair out like it was The 2002 World Series (the Yanks lost to Arizona in the 9th) OUCH! Best Adapted Screenplay should go to Up In The Air, and make no mistake that movie will most likely be overshadowed on Oscar nigh but it was a GREAT film with an even GREATER performance from George Clooney (god bless that man) and the lovely Ana Kendrick and Vera Farmiga. But hooray for Jason Reitman who will walk away with that screenplay award. There is also a film called In The Loop up for Best Screenplay, this film was pretty much a blast and the screenplay was absolutely AMAZING! I'm just saying, we had a pretty good year! RECAP time... Best Picture: Avatar (most likely) fingers crossed for Hurt Locker. Best Actor: Jeff Bridges. Best Actress: Sandra Bullock. Best Supporting Actress: Monique. Best Supporting Actor: Christoph Walz. Best Director: Kathryn Bigalow. Best (original) Screenplay: Inglorious Basterds. Best (adapted) Screenplay: Up In The Air. So there you have it, the main categories at least. And don't think I'm not drooling over the cinematography and editing awards either, I just don't wanna completely geek out on y'all here (TOO LATE!) So, I wish you all a most wonderful OSCAR NIGHT, I truly do! Let's just enjoy this one eh!!! Oh yeah, look out for Avatar to most likely just dominate most of the night effects wise and shit. Enjoy the ACADEMY AWARDS everybody! Later-
