I think I agree with this, except for (maybe) Supporting Actress. If there's going to be a big upset, it'll be in one of the supporting categories (although I think Javier Bardem has a lock). Cate Blanchett has been the front-runner in this race forever, it seems. I wouldn't be surprised to see someone else win.

I'm just feeling like Michael Clayton has to be acknowledged somewhere. And I'm not convinced that all the Academy members even bothered to watch I'm Not There. Cate doesn't appear until like 30 minutes into the movie. It's also not nominated in any of the other categories, so there's less motivation for them to sit through it.

Personally, I'd like to see Amy Ryan or Blanchett take it. The former needs it more.

I'd love to see Hal Holbrook win for Into the Wild, but I think his nomination was the prize there. It'd be a sentimental vote for sure, but he deserves it - he broke my heart in that movie.

I think Michael Clayton will win SOMETHING. But I think original screenplay will go to Juno, because that seems to be the category where they award the "quirky" movies that won't win something like Best Picture or acting awards.

You're probably right, but I just couldn't bring myself to type Her name.

I'd rather be wrong than embrace the darkness.

You're used to that, no?

My Oscar prediction:

I'll not be watching.

Ah, but did she say it SHOULD win? I think it will win, too. I don't think it should, but like I said earlier:

"But I think original screenplay will go to Juno, because that seems to be the category where they award the "quirky" movies that won't win something like Best Picture or acting awards."

I haven't seen any of the movies, except Michael Clayton. Yes, I know I phail. But from what I've seen/read, I agree with you cori about the screenplay/Juno. Diablo Cody won for screenplay last night on the Independent Spirit Awards. I caught about 2/3rds of that broadcast prior to SNL.

Right.

I really want there to be a split in major awards between No Country and There Will Be Blood - at least give P.T. Best Adapted Screenplay.

She won Best First Screenplay, while Tamara Jenkins won Best Screenplay for The Savages.

Thanks for the clarification - I wasn't exactly sure of the category.

The winners from last night are here:

I liked some of the songs that were done - the song from the Diving Bell & The Butterfly... and Steve Zahn's song from I'm Not There.

I just hope to god Jon Stewart isn't above making a stripper joke at Cody's expense. If she does have to win, seeing the audience laughing at her first will make it go down a lot easier.

You know Chris Rock would go there.
