Let’s dish a little…shall we? So THE award show to end all film awards shows is upon us…the gold naked man that all of us in Hollywood will do just about anything to wrap our grubby little hands around (and yes he is heavy) … OSCAR. Yesterday, he (and Salma) told the world those films, stars, writers, filmmakers, executives et al that for this year have been sprinkled with gold glitter dust aka the license to print money for films that the general public won’t go see…except now well they have to because they are nominated..or at least they’ll rent them when they’re out on DVD. Picks? You want Picks? Ohhhh…sooo easy. Child’s Play..this year is the year that Oscar can say THANK YOU to at least two of it’s always a bridesmaid never a bride fellas…Marty and Petey it’s YOUR year.
Best Picture The Departed…although personally I beleive Babel is best and LMS was the most fun
Best Director Martin Scorsese
Best Actor Peter O’Toole…most nominated actor never to win.
Best Actress Helen Mirren
Supporting Actress Cate Blanchett..although I WANT Jennifer Hudson to win..such a Cinderella story.
Supporting Actor Eddie Murphy
My picks…not necessarily those that get my vote…but these are the peeps that in my opinion will be going home with Oscar.
