Oscar® Predictions

I had hoped to finish catching up on my movie reviews first, but I need to get this post done before the ceremony. So without further ado, here are my Oscar® predictions for this year (for films from 2008):

  • Picture: Slumdog Millionaire (Milk would by my personal vote)
  • Director: Danny Boyle for Slumdog Millionaire
  • Actor: Mickey Rourke for The Wrestler
  • Actress: Kate Winslet for The Reader
  • Supporting Actor: Heath Ledger for The Dark Knight
  • Supporting Actress: Penélope Cruz for Vicky Cristina Barcelona
  • Original Screenplay: Milk
  • Adapted Screenplay: Slumdog Millionaire
  • Cinematography: Slumdog Millionaire
  • Editing: Slumdog Millionaire
  • Animated Feature: WALL·E
  • Documentary Feature: Man on Wire
  • Foreign Language Feature: Waltz with Bashir
  • Art Direction: The Curious Case of Benjamin Button
  • Costumes: The Duchess
  • Makeup: The Curious Case of Benjamin Button
  • Score: Slumdog Millionaire
  • Song: “Jai Ho” from Slumdog Millionaire
  • Sound: The Dark Knight
  • Sound Editing: The Dark Knight
  • Visual Effects: The Curious Case of Benjamin Button
  • Animated Short: Presto
  • Documentary Short: The Witness from the Balcony of Room 306
  • Live Action Short: The Pig (Grisen)

I credit Awards Daily for most of my data. I only diverged from their consensus picks in two cases, though I considered it in two more (Foreign Language Feature and Sound Editing).
