The Oscars ... my Predictions

Feb 25th is the 79th Annual Oscar ceremony. As a bit of a film pundit I'm making my predictions before the lobbying begins for individual movies. Shame Rocky Balboa wasn't in the best picture. "It's not how hard you hit but how hard you can get hit" - line of the year in any movie.

The Crucial List Of Nominations:

Best Picture:
The Departed
Letters From Iwo Jima
Little Miss Sunshine
The Queen - It shouldn't but it will (please let it be Ms Sunshine)

Best Supporting Actress
Rinko Kikuchi - Babel
Cate Blanchett – Notes on a Scandal
Abigail Breslin – Little Miss Sunshine
Jennifer Hudson – Dreamgirls - Oscar loves musicals it worked for Zeta Jones
Adriana Barraza - Babel

Best Supporting Actor
Alan Arkin – Little Miss Sunshine
Jackie Earle Haley - Little Children
Djimon Hounsou – Blood Diamond
Eddie Murphy – Dreamgirls - Eddie it's going to be Eddie
Mark Wahlberg – The Departed

Best Actress
Penelope Cruz – Volver
Judi Dench – Notes on a Scandal
Helen Mirren – The Queen - I think this is as certain as you can get.
Meryl Streep – The Devil Wears Prada
Kate Winslet – Little Children

Best Actor
Leonardo DiCaprio – Blood Diamond
Ryan Gosling – Half Nelson
Peter O’Toole – Venus
Will Smith – The Pursuit of Happyness
Forest Whitaker – Last King of Scotland - Legendary performance

Best Director
Alejandro González Iñárritu – Babel
Martin Scorsese – The Departed - If he doesn't win it he never will, Marty! Marty!
Clint Eastwood – Letters From Iwo jima
Stephen Frears - The Queen
Paul Greengrass – United 93

Where's Children of Men and Casino Royale (at least in terms of production nominations for the later)?

Also, is playing a very famous person now the sure-fire way of getting an Oscar nod these days, just in the same way that affecting a disability or life threatening illness did during the '90s?

The fact that Scorsese has yet to win a Best Director statuette tells you all you need to know about the merits of the Oscars...

Also the repeated snubbing of the Scary Movie franchise is beginning to bug me... why is true talent and originality always overlooked?
