Oscar Predictions 2008
I used my intuition this year and gazed into my crystal ball
up I send my gaze out to the Movies to visualize the announcer saying " and the Oscar for Best Picture etc. goes to...."
Now I once again haven't seen any of these movies. I remain totally
impartial. I like the movies but I wait till after.
No Country for Old Men - the Coen Brothers
Hollywood is always a kind of hypnotic subconscious suggestion medium
so the medium is the message, get rid of the old boys network.
Best Actor -
Daniel Day- Lewis in There Will Be Blood.
Again on this theme-say you want a revolution?
Best supporting actor-
Casey Affleck in The assassination of Jesse James
ACTRESS IN A LEADING ROLE
Julie Christie-she's earned it
ACTRESS IN A SUPPORTING ROLE
Cate Blanchett- I'm not there-
for playing Bob Dylan and introducing a very traditional theatrical
trans gender role
BEST DIRECTOR- The Coen Brothers
BEST ART DIRECTION- Sweeny Todd
I love Tim Burton's work, it's time he won, he's been nominated over 8 times.
The Diving Bell and the Butterfly
Achievenent in Visual Effects
The Golden Compass-
Acutally I did see this one and it was stunning. Now we have to read
all the books.
