DVD Talk's Oscar Predictions

DVD Talk's Oscar Predictions

The Academy Awards are less than a week away and like everybody else the DVDTalk review staff has their favorite nominees. The panel was polled on the major awards. They cast their votes on who they thought deserved Oscar gold and the results are below. There were some surprising selections as well as some unexpected films not showing up on the list. How close did we come to picking the winners? Find out on Sunday March 7th when the Academy Awards will be telecast on ABC. (Click on a movie poster to read DVDTalk's review.)

Performance by an actor in a leading role:

* Jeff Bridges in Crazy Heart
- Wow, The Dude might win an Oscar.

Performance by an actor in a supporting role:

* Christoph Waltz in Inglourious Basterds
- This was the only category that had a unanimous vote. Waltz seems like a shoe in.

Performance by an actress in a leading role:

* Sandra Bullock in The Blind Side
- After winning both the Golden Globe and the Critics Choice Award for her role in this sports biopic it looks like will be her year.

Performance by an actress in a supporting role:

* Anna Kendrick in Up in the Air
- The voting was close on this one. Though we snubbed Up in the Air's star, George Clooney, Kendrick is the favorite in this category

Best animated feature film of the year:

* Up
- Another tough category, there were a lot of excellent animated films this year, but it's hard to top Pixar.

Achievement in directing:

* Kathryn Bigelow - The Hurt Locker
- Bigelow has made some very good movies over the course of her career, but none of them come close to having the suspense, emotion, and intensity of this film. She deserves it.

Best motion picture of the year:

* The Hurt Locker
- An exceptional movie, this one has 'winner' written all over it.
