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?
