"Hey, I'm Here For the Big Show" — The Oscar Predictions

So after the great success of our last Oscar Party, Kristyne & Morgan decided to throw another one. And they all demanded that we put down our own Oscar predictions for bragging rights on a star chart. So here are mine. You'll probably notice a trend or two.

Best Actor in a Leading Role = Mickey Rourke, "The Wrestler"

Best Actor in a Supporting Role = Heath Ledger, "The Dark Knight"

Best Actress in a Leading Role - Kate Winslet, "The Reader"

Best Actress in a Supporting Role - I'm guessing Viola Davis, "Doubt"

Best Animated Feature - It fucking BETTER be "Wall-E"

Best Art Direction - Oh geez, probably "The Duchess." They live for period pieces like that.

Best Cinematography - "Slumdog Millionaire"

Best Costume Design - Again, "The Duchess." There's a lot to do.

Best Directing - Danny Boyle, "Slumdog Millionaire"

Best Documentary Feature - "Man on Wire"

Best Documentary Short - Um..."Smile Pinki," because I like the name.

Best Film Editing - "Slumdog Millionaire"

Best Foreign Language Film - "Waltz With Bashir"

Best Makeup - "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button"

Best Music (Score) - A.R. Rahman, "Slumdog Millionaire"

Best Music (Song) - As much as I love Peter Gabriel's "Down to Earth," I pick "Jai Ho" from "Slumdog Millionaire." Sorry, "Wall-E."

Best Picture - If "Slumdog Millionaire" doesn't win, there's something wrong.

Best Short Film (Animated) - "This Way Up" or "Presto." Both are cute.

Best Short Film (Live Action) - Oh dear. Um... "The Pig."

Best Sound Editing - "Wall-E"

Best Sound Mixing - "Wall-E." For this and Editing, my second pick is "Ironman."

Best Visual Effects - "Ironman"

Best Writing (Adapted Screenplay) - "Slumdog Millionaire."

Best Original Screenplay - "Milk" will probably win over "Wall-E."
