OK, Oscar® time tonight. Of course, I've seen very few of the nominated films, but I've never let that stop me from taking a stab at picking the winners before. So, here goes nothing!
ACTOR IN A LEADING ROLE: Jamie Foxx - RAY
ACTOR IN A SUPPORTING ROLE: Morgan Freeman - MILLION DOLLAR BABY
ACTRESS IN A LEADING ROLE: Hilary Swank - MILLION DOLLAR BABY
ACTRESS IN A SUPPORTING ROLE: Virginia Madsen - SIDEWAYS
ANIMATED FEATURE FILM: THE INCREDIBLES
ACHEIVEMENT IN DIRECTING (Why they call it this I'll never understand): Martin Scorsese for THE AVIATOR
BEST ORIGINAL SCREENPLAY: ETERNAL SUNSHINE OF THE SPOTLESS MIND by Charlie Kaufman, Michel Gondry, Pierre Bismuth
BEST PICTURE: THE AVIATOR
That's all I'm picking. I'll probably watch the first hour, then go over to HBO for Carnivalé, then go back when that's over. More than anything, I'm looking forward to seeing Chris Rock as host- even though he's gonna have to tone his material down to a PG-13, he's usually always good.
