My Predictions: The 80th Annual Academy Awards
We're less than a week away from the big night. Here are my predictions for the winners in the big categories:
Best Picture: NO COUNTRY FOR OLD MEN
Best Director: Joel and Ethan Coen for NO COUNTRY FOR OLD MEN
Best Actor: Daniel Day-Lewis for THERE WILL BE BLOOD
Best Actress: Since I posted this (yesterday) I've already changed my mind about Julie Christie and I'm gonna go with Ellen Page for JUNO (changed 2/19/08)!
Best Supporting Actor: Javier Bardem for NO COUNTRY FOR OLD MEN
Best Supporting Actress: Cate Blanchett for I'M NOT THERE
I also think NO COUNTRY FOR OLD MEN not only gets the above three awards, but that it will sweep— an early sign will be if it takes Sound Editing and Sound Mixing away from TRANSFORMERS.
