(Getting Mad Over) Oscar Predictions

Ladies and Gentlemen, Boys and Girls! Its that time of the year, yes, you know the time, where we all gather around the TV and watch as movies we do or don’t think should win the biggest award in movie history do or don’t win the biggest award in movie history.

This year is filled with some good stuff and here are my Predictions(/Hopes if they are different):

So there ya have it. I think its absurd that Hailee Steinfeld is only being considered for Best Supporting Actress when she is arguably the title character and in the movie more than anyone else (having said that still would go for Portman regardless). Same could be said of Christian Bale. His character is arguably a bigger focus than Wahlberg’s.

I also think its ridiculous that a movie like Scott Pilgrim Vs The World didn’t get nominated for Best Adapted Screenplay or Visual Effects.

All in all can’t wait for James Franco and Anne Hathaway to get out there and host this thang, have some fun, and get mad at all the things I disagree with.

Lastly:

Whatchyu Want Natalie?!

Go Black Swan!!!
