My Oscar Picks 2013

My opinion really doesn’t count for all that much this year as some personal issues have kept me from seeing many of the films this year, but folks expect to see my picks, so this year, I will choose by instinct and odds rather than any educated guesses. I still might get lucky. Here you go…

  • Best animated feature – Brave
  • Best animated short film – Paperman
  • Best visual effects – Marvel’s The Avengers
  • Best original screenplay – Django Unchained
  • Best original score, and song – Skyfall
  • Best costume design – Snow White and the Huntsman
  • Best direction – Steven Spielberg for Lincoln
  • Best supporting actress – Sally Field for Lincoln
  • Best supporting actor – Christoph Waltz for Django Unchained
  • Best actress – Jennifer Lawrence for Silver Linings Playbook
  • Best actor – Denzel Washington for Flight
  • Best picture – Silver Linings Playbook
  • Yep, that’s right. I’m predicting a complete shut out for Le Miz. Nothing against the flick, but that’s just how it played out as I picked category by category.

    What do you folks think?

    1. I think your predictions are pretty accurate; some of mine are the same. (you can see them on my blog.. http://scanningthesilverscreen.blogspot.com/ ) But quite honestly I think that Le Miz could take home some awards.

    2. I didn't mean to shut out Le Miz, but that's just how it turned out. Anne Hathaway or that cute little girl might take an Oscar, and so might the costuming (Snow White was better however), but we'll see. Great start to your blog by the way! Would love to follow you but you don't have any widgets to follow through email or a reader. I guess I'll just check back.
