Fearless Oscar Predictions

Best Picture: Babel
Best Actress: Helen Mirren
Best Actor: Forrest Whittaker
Best S. Actress: Jennifer Hudson
Best S. Actor: Eddie Murphy
Best Director: Martin Scorsese

I hope Pan's Labyrinth wins Best Foreign Film, and I would be very pleased if Ryan Gosling won best actor, but he won't (it was enough of a surprise that he was nominated). I always admire "less is more" acting and the Academy likes "more is more." That's not to denigrate Helen Mirren, who is a shoe-in.

I love the Oscars. They are always deadly boring, but I always watch them, always get teary eyed when the bit about the people who have died this year comes on. Anyway, this year they're doing a tribute to Ennio Morricone, so we'll have some great music for a few minutes at least. And I'm looking forward to having Ellen as the host this year.

Tonight I'm going to watch Babel on dvd, so I will have seen it, and The Queen and Pan's Labyrinth, anyway.
