OSCARS 2010

It’s just a few days before the Academy hands out the little gold naked dudes (calm down Sen. Roy Ashburn). So here are my picks for the major categories this year.
BEST PICTURE:
The Hurt Locker

BEST ACTOR:
Jeff Bridges

BEST ACTRESS:
Carey Mulligan

BEST SUPPORTING ACTOR:
Christoph Walz

BEST SUPPORTING ACTRESS:
Mo’Nique

BEST ADAPTED SCREENPLAY:
In The Loop

BEST ORIGINAL SCREENPLAY:
Inglourious Basterds

BEST SONG:
“The Weary Kind” (Crazy Heart)

BEST ORIGINAL SCORE:
UP

BEST DIRECTOR:
Kathryn Bigelow

I have seen all the nominated Best Picture contenders except for “Precious”, but people I know and respect who’ve seen it say Mo’Nique is clearly the winner in that category (so who am I to argue). If I were to limit it just to movies I’ve seen then I’d go with Vera Farmiga.
You may now commence the laughter and slinging barbs in my direction.
