First, it’s a battle against Avatar vs. The Hurt Locker with each having 9 nominations. Followed by Inglourious Basterds with 8, Precious and Up in the Air with 6, Up with 5, and District 9, Nine, and Star Trek with 4.

Also, Peru just made Oscar History with its first ever nomination for Foreign Film.

Again nearly perfect top acting, director and film predictions… but this time around I had rubbish prediction on the rest of the categories, bringing my percentage down by 10%. So 75% it is! LOL

Il Divo really sneaked up on Makeup, Harry Potter sneaked up on Cinematography, Sherlock Holmes snuck up on me on all its nods (2), Maggie G. sneaked up on me as Supporting Actress, The Secret of Kells sneaked up on Animated Feature (Good surprise! Need to watch it), and I totally left out The Blind Side because I thought The Hangover was more “successful” critically and with its Globes win…

Also, really? No love at all for (500) Days of Summer? Or Moon?

  1. Tarantino and Basterds will get robbed huge this year (except Waltz).

  2. I agree. I did like Basterds better than Hurt Locker… suspecting the HL will win. I do hope Avatar doesn’t. And I do hope Cameron doesn’t. It’s time a female director wins… so if it were for me, I would pick Basterds for film, and Bigelow for director.

  3. I read the list and go meeeeh
    This list does not make me do jumpy claps. It feels like last year wasn’t that great of a film year…
    I dunno….

  4. Well, you haven’t seen most, Julz. xD
    I can vouch for Un Prophete, and District 9. You should really watch both of those.
