Yeah, they announced it last year, before 5, now 10

Didn't think Avatar was THAT good anyway, yes it is entertaining to watch but the storyline isn't amazing, certainly not worthy of winning best picture IMHO.

I'd love to see Jeremy Renner get the Best Actor award ahead of all those far bigger names.............

I may well revise this, but my predictions are:

Best Picture
“Avatar”, James Cameron and Jon Landau, Producers

Actor in a Leading Role
Jeff Bridges in “Crazy Heart”

Actor in a Supporting Role
Christoph Waltz in “Inglourious Basterds”

Actress in a Leading Role
Meryl Streep in “Julie & Julia”

Actress in a Supporting Role
Mo’Nique in “Precious: Based on the Novel ‘Push’ by Sapphire”

Animated Feature Film
“Up”, Pete Docter

Art Direction
“Avatar”, Art Direction: Rick Carter and Robert Stromberg; Set Decoration: Kim Sinclair

Cinematography
“Avatar”, Mauro Fiore

Costume Design
“The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus”, Monique Prudhomme

Directing
“The Hurt Locker”, Kathryn Bigelow

Documentary (Feature)
“The Cove”, Nominees to be determined

Documentary (Short Subject)
Are you kidding I have no idea...

Film Editing
“Avatar”, Stephen Rivkin, John Refoua and James Cameron

Foreign Language Film
“Un Prophete”, France or “The White Ribbon”, Germany - the only one so far I am split on, Cannes Winner White Ribbon or classic prison drama? I think Un Prophete will take it...


Visual Effects
“Avatar”, Joe Letteri, Stephen Rosenbaum, Richard Baneham and Andrew R. Jones

Writing (Adapted Screenplay)
“In the Loop”, Screenplay by Jesse Armstrong, Simon Blackwell, Armando Iannucci, Tony Roche
“Precious: Based on the Novel ‘Push’ by Sapphire”, Screenplay by Geoffrey Fletcher

can't decide.... argh...

Writing (Original Screenplay)
“Inglourious Basterds”, Written by Quentin Tarantino

I'm happy for this to be analyzed after the event - and I will change it, but this is my prediction for now...

I think Best Actress is one of the weakest awards this year... the best supporting actress sweeps the floor with best actress no matter who wins best actress. It will be Mo’Nique - this is a sure thing.

Americans seem to go crazy over her performance as Julia Childs - I didn't know her so well, if it had been Delia.... well, but it seemed pitch perfect. I think she'll take it.

Armando Iannucci......... I still remember his comedy show ("Mary Whitehouse Experience" or something) on which he asked OJ Simpson for his autograph - then unfolded the paper to reveal that OJ had signed a huge "I CONFESS" statement........... well, I found it amusing.............
