My Oscar Picks

Here are my Oscar Picks, with a couple of Qualifiers..

Best Picture:
Letters from Iwo Jima

I'm picking this against my Gut Feeling which is that maybe, just MAYBE Little Miss Sunshine could take it. It would be like Crash last year - Brokeback was the sure thing, but Crash came out of nowhere.

Best Director:
Martin Scorcese - The Departed. Why? It's his time.

Best Actor:
Forest Whitaker - Last King of Scotland. You can't stem the Tide. I agree with Hobson tho'.. O'Toole should win, since he had the better performance. I wouldn't count out Will Smith either.

Best Actress:
Helen Mirren - The Queen. Again, you can't stem the tide. However Judi Dench SHOULD win, her performance was incredible.

Best Supporting Actress:
Jennifer Hudson - Dreamgirls. See above. Momentum is there. Although, If Abigail Breslin won for Little Miss Sunshine I wouldn't swear at the Academy.

Best Supporting Actor:
It really pains me to say this.. Eddie Murphy - Dreamgirls. Mark Wahlberg will get the Fuzzy End of the Lollipop this year.

So, those are mine.. What are yours?
