My 2012 Academy Awards predictions
February 24, 2012 Leave a comment
I’ve previously come out with my Oscar predictions, and selected my winners from the entire list, but it was too long and boring (kind of like the show – am I right?) so I’ve just narrowed it down to the big six.
I feel like I did well this year seeing a good chunk of the nominees, but in a couple cases I’m going on limited selection. Below my choice you’ll see the other movies in the category that I’ve seen, just so you know where I’m coming from.
Have a look and let me know what your picks are!
Best Supporting Actor: Christopher Plummer (Beginners)
(I’ve seen: Jonah Hill (Moneyball))
Best Supporting Actress: Octavia Spencer (The Help)
(I’ve seen: Bérénice Bejo (The Artist), Jessica Chastain (The Help), Melissa McCarthy (Bridesmaids))
Best Lead Actor: George Clooney (The Descendants)
(I’ve seen: Jean Dujardin (The Artist), Gary Oldman (Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy), Brad Pitt (Moneyball))
Best Lead Actress: Viola Davis (The Help)
Haven’t seen the other nominees’ films.
