Many of my picks for Oscar gold have no chance of winning. I thought Zero Dark Thirty was the best movie, but the torture scenes have made the movie radioactive in the Academy’s mind. That rationale also sinks Jessica Chastain’s hopes for Best Actress. I liked Bradley Cooper’s performance in Silver Linings Playbook, but the demographics of the Academy (old) will give the Best Actor Oscar to Daniel Day-Lewis. Here are my predictions (guesses really) for the Oscar winners. We didn’t get a chance to see Amour or Beasts of the Southern Wild yet. Who do you think will win?
BEST MOVIE: ARGO
BEST ACTOR: Daniel Day-Lewis
BEST ACTRESS: Jennifer Lawrence
BEST SUPPORTING ACTRESS: Anne Hathaway
BEST SUPPORTING ACTOR: Tommy Lee Jones
BEST DIRECTOR: Stephen Spielberg
