Predicting the Oscars
The Academy Awards Show is scheduled for this Sunday. To avoid being biased, I deliberately did not see any of the nominated films or actors. So these are unbiased predictions. My picks and $1.75 will get you an endless cup of coffee at Paul's Restaurant in Elgin, Illinois.
"Lincoln" Steven Spielberg and Kathleen Kennedy, Producers
A friend of mine who sees a lot of movies said this was the most boring picture that she had ever seen.
"Lincoln" Steven Spielberg
The best picture winner must have a director.
Actor in a Leading Role
Daniel Day-Lewis in "Lincoln"
I remember this guy from "Last of the Mohicans".
Actress in a Leading Role
Jennifer Lawrence in "Silver Linings Playbook"
Rolling Stone magazine called her "the most promising young actress in America."
Actor in a Supporting Role
Tommy Lee Jones in "Lincoln"
I like his name.
Actress in a Supporting Role
Anne Hathaway in "Les Miserables"
Big costume drama.
