Oscar Predictions

Anybody got predictions?
Here is what I'd like to see happen:
Best Film: Munich
Best Director: Steven Speilberg
Best Actor: Heath Ledger/Philip Seymour Hoffman - I love both of these performances, it's impossible to choose
Best Actress: Felicity Huffman
Best Supporting Actor: Paul Giamatti (to make up for last years snub...Jake Gyllenhaal probably gave best performance in this category)
Best Supporting Actress: Michelle Williams - her character could've easily come off as a cold, unsympathetic bitch, but she did a remarkable job creating a character with depth
And, i hope Tony Kushner and Eric Roth win for best adapted screenplay for Munich.

Predictions/my choice

Best Picture

Crash/Brokeback Mountain-the buzz is that it will be Crash and I think that's a shame, just in my opinion the weakest film of the five. I would have put Walk The Line in its' place. Crash has some very important themes and messages but as a film I don't think it's all that great

Best Actor

Philip Seymour Hoffman/Joaquin Phoenix-Hoffman was amazing, but I still have a soft spot for Joaquin in that movie, especially after seeing it again on DVD. Hoffman's was more of an imitation whereas Joaquin captured an essence.

Actress

Reese/Reese-I haven't seen Transamerica

Supporting Actor

Clooney/Jake Gyllenhaal-I love Paul Giamatti but Cinderella Man was so long ago and not my fave performance by him. There's something amazing about Jake in that movie, and I didn't think Clooney was all that great in Syriana-but they want to give him something

Supporting Actress

Rachel Weisz/Rachel Weisz-I thought Michelle's performance was beautiful too. I loved Constant Gardener. Very tough choice, Catherine Keener was great too

Director-Ang Lee/Ang Lee-masterful job imho. In the hands of most directors that movie could have become an awkward, silly parody.

I'm no expert about movies just a fan.

Movie - Brokeback Mountain. I'd love to see Good Night and Good Luck win it instead, but that's chasing rainbows.

Director - Ang Lee.

Actress - Reese Witherspoon. Confirmed, done deal folks. She was the best part of Walk the Line, IMO. And that's saying a lot given how great Joaquin was.

Actor - Philip Seymour Hoffman. He'll take it.

Supporting actress - Rachel Weisz was excellent even if I thought Constant Gardener was rather meh. I think I went in with expectations that were too high.

Supporting actor - George Clooney. He's nominated for a number of things and since he won't win the others, they'll toss him this one as consolation. Which is fine because I love George.

Best Actor: Phillip Seymour Hoffman (although the rest of the nominees were also stellar. I was really impressed with all of the nominated performances, especially Heath Ledger.)

Best Actress: Reese Witherspoon or Felicity Huffman

Best Supporting Actress: Rachel Weisz

Best Supporting Actor: George Clooney (he's unlikely to get anything for "Good Night, and Good Luck", so they might want to reward him with the supporting Oscar instead)

Best Picture: Brokeback Mountain

Best Director: Ang Lee

Cinematography is going to be wiped away with Memoirs of a Geisha. That movie was amazing. There's not even question about it winning costume either.

I'd like to predict this year, but I'm feeling so angry at BBM that I can't even think about it. I know they are going to be swiping some awards they definitely don't deserve.

Munich is so much better than Brokeback, I would almost bet my own money on Brokeback.

That's the way it works.
