OSCAR WATCH: Oscar Predictions

Well, the time has finally come. Tomorrow the is the end of this whirlwind Oscar season and I'm really excited to see how it all turns out. My goal is to get 20 categories correct, which was one of my New Year's Movie Resolutions. Hopefully I don't embarrass myself and I actually meet my target. I'm taking a huge gamble with my prediction for Best Adapted Screenplay (Argo's gonna win) but as they say, "go big, or go home". My prediction of 'The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo' for Best Editing paid off big time last year, as I won one of my Oscar pools. After going back and forth for a while, here's what I came up with:

  1. I really hope Lincoln wins Best Adapted Screenplay. It's my favorite of the nominees. I also think there is sound logic to predict it to win. Like The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, it's the flashiest of the nominees and it could sneak in past the other 2 frontrunners.

    1. I would love to see it win too. I think the writing for Lincoln is head and shoulders above anything else in either screenplay category.

  2. A bet for Ang Lee is kind of risky. I still think of Spielberg, because it seems to get only Lead Actor win (doubt about adapted screenplay), so voters might love to honor Steven.

    All in all, your predictions could be veery precise :)

  3. You are a genius. Wow.
