Academy Awards

I can't wait for tonight. Anybody have any predictions? Here's mine:

Best Picture: The Hurt Locker
Best Director: Kathryn Bigelow
Best Actor: Jeff Bridges
Best Actress: Sandra Bullock
Best Supporting Actor: Christoph Waltz
Best Supporting Actress: Mo'nique
Best Animated Film: Up
Best Documentary: Food, Inc.

Let's see how I do! Avatar may win, but I'm rooting for the Indie.

Can't wait to see the dresses as well.

I can't watch it because freaking Cablevision would not negotiate terms with ABC, and they shut off ABC as of midnight.

It's a shame that there seems to be so many locks in the main categories this year. Oh well, I'll still watch them as usual.

I love Penelope Cruz's dress. It looks like red rose petals.

I liked Steve and Alex's opening bit, but did Clooney look annoyed/unamused to you guys? Anyways, nothing out of the ordinary so far except for Precious winning adapted screenplay. I was hoping Up in the Air would win.

What a great day for women in the industry as well as for independent film.

Very impressed that the hurt locker got best picture. Way to go .

Loved Sandra Bullock's acceptance speech too. Perfectly executed.

^I don't think blockbuster and best picture are necessarily synonymous.
The reward for having the best selling movie of all time is money!

I thought Sandra Bullock looked fantastic! Kristen Stewart was so awkward I could hardly watch her. Jeff Bridges tribute to his parents was nice even though it was a painfully slow speech. I also liked Sarah Jessica Parker's dress (but not her hair and makeup). Charlize Theron's dress...fail....

WOW...you did really well with your predictions!

I liked SJPs dress too minus the neck thing. Thought it would be more elegant without it.

I didn't see Kristen Stewart's speech, but barf...she is awkward all over the place, I can only imagine.

At least she looked better than she usually does.

I agree too, although it was a good movie to watch in IMAX 3D.

^I kind of like her because she is awk Its kind of nice to see a celeb be totally not comfortable in her own skin in the limelight She's so different from "normal" celebs that is why I actually kind of like her now
