My Oscars Predictions

Best Picture: “The Hurt Locker”
I'm really hoping for a Inglorius Basterds upset, but if THL wins I'll be fine, both were my 2 favorite movies of the year.

Best Director: Kathryn Bigelow, “The Hurt Locker”
Historic: First woman to ever do it

Best Actor: Jeff Bridges, “Crazy Heart”

Best Actress: Sandra Bullock, “The Blind Side”
Arrghh, it is really painful to pick Sandra here, I almost feel dirty, but I have to do it, at the end it just a prediction, for me she was the least deserving of the five and I really don't understand how they're gonna snub the great Mary Loise Streep yet once again. Still hoping from the Meryl upset, even Gaby or Carey would be more deserving

Best Supporting Actor: Christoph Waltz, “Inglourious Basterds”
Terrific performance by Waltz, he stoles every scene he is in.
Best Supporting Actress: Mo’Nique, “Precious”
She was magnificent, the scene with Mariah Carey just gave her the Oscar

Best Adapted Screenplay: “Up in the Air”

Best Original Screenplay: “The Hurt Locker”
I'm very torn in this category between THL and IB, at the end I went with THL but if IB wins I'll be very happy as well
Best Art Direction: “Avatar”
Avatar was a visual event, how can it lose here?
Best Cinematography: “The Hurt Locker”
Probably it will be Avatar, but I'm sticking with THL
Best Costume Design: “The Young Victoria”

Best Film Editing: “The Hurt Locker”

Best Makeup: “Star Trek”

Best Music (Original Song): “The Weary Kind” from “Crazy Heart”

Best Sound Editing: “Avatar”

Best Sound Mixing: “The Hurt Locker”

Best Visual Effects: “Avatar”

Best Foreign Language Film: “El Secreto de sus Ojos”
It could be Germany's The White Ribbon or France's A Prophet, but I'll go with the Argentinian drama
Best Documentary Short: “The Last Truck: Closing of a GM Plant”
The China one is a very powerful one, it'll be between these two
Best Short Film (Animated): “Wallace & Gromit in ‘A Matter of Loaf and Death’”
