Awarded Movie Watched List

January 27, 2009 — 2 Comments

Last year was a particularly good year for me to watch films. Why? Well, compared to the previous year, in which many or most of the films nominated were still on my ‘to-watch’ list, this year I’ve done all my movie watching before Oscar was announced.

Oscar Ballot 81st - Watched

Green = WATCHED
Orange = Dying to watch~~

SAGs are Today!

January 25, 2009 — Leave a comment

Totally forgot about them during the week…

I doubt I’ll be doing the Red Carpet live blogging… but be sure to check outthe website for blogging of the ceremony as winners are announced… Also, check out Inside the Gold for more live blogging of the event.

I am most likely RUBBISH at SAG prediction. Last year, when I did that Marion Cotillard FYC fan-made campaign, it totally slipped my mind and she lost. Anyway, I’ve seen almost ALL films… except for Rachel Getting Married, and Tropic Thunder. LOL’ yes, you can roll your eyes if you want.

Outstanding Male Actor in a Leading Role:
Sean Penn – Milk
Best Surprise:
Richard Jenkins – The Visitor

Outstanding Female Actor in a Leading Role:
Kate Winslet – Revolutionary Road
Best Surprise:
Meryl Streep – Doubt
I’m sorry… I did enjoy her character however bad you may think she was. But I’m iffy here… Anne Hathaway still has a chance, in my opinion~~~ I already explained the BAFTA snub.

Outstanding Male Actor in a Supporting Role:
Heath Ledger – The Dark Knight
Best Surprise:
Philip Seymour Hoffman – Doubt
Sorry, after watching Doubt, I am a big BIG fan of the film in respect of acting.

Outstanding Male Actor in a Supporting Role:
Taraji P. Henson – The Curious Case of Benjamin Button
Best Surprise:
Penelope Cruz – Vicky Cristina Barcelona
I probably could’ve chosen the opposite, but the fact that I got it so wrong last year makes me think Henson has the best shot at it here. Penelope speaks a little too much Spanish in this role, that’s why I’m iffy. Otherwise, I would’ve chosen her as my winner. Of course, Winslet could win here and screw me up in the Leading Actress~~ LOL

Outstanding Performance by a Cast:
Milk
Best Surprise:
Doubt

– That’s it~~~ all my film winner predictions. Sorry, don’t do TV, but I’m expecting Tina Fey and 30 Rock to make an appearance in the stage. Quick thoughts?

Oscar Nominations 2009!

January 22, 2009 — 4 Comments

I do pretty good Oscar prediction nominees, it seems~ 78 of 92 from all categories (minus shorts and docus), and pretty much perfect score on major categories of acting, directing and film~

Surprises? Kate Winslet nominated for The Reader as Best Actress… No Bolt on the Best Song~~~ xD and Slumdog getting a double nod there. Wooo for Richard Jenkins!!

Not so good surprises… Waltz with Bashir snub in the animation category.

And as I predicted Benjamin Button is up for 13 nods (I said 12-14), and Slumdog is up for 10 (I said 9-10) LOL~

Check out the graphic list of nominees, or the print-friendly version that includes “film by awards” and “award # by film”.

BAFTA Nods 2009!

January 15, 2009 — 2 Comments

Well, well~ I think I wasn’t too far off with my Oscar nod predictions with some BAFTA nominations. Biggest surprise? Kate Winslet competing against herself for Best Actress with The Reader and Revolutionary Road. Also… GREATEST thing in the world??? Best Animated Film with AMAZING nominees~~~ WALL-E, Waltz with Bashir & Persepolis! Persepolis was released in 2007, and it was up for an Oscar last time, but it gets to be nominated for a BAFTA, so  I am happy~~~ No Bolt around~~ AWESOME.

And~~~ Son of Rambow is up for The Carl Foreman Award (given to the British director, writer and/or producer for their first feature film). Anyway~~ who’s leading? Of course it’s Slumdog Millionaire with 11 nods, also leading… The Curious Case of Benjamin Button with 11.

And no worries… Anne Hathaway and Melissa Leo were probably overlooked because it’s likely their films hasn’t opened in the UK… they haven’t even been seen much in the US.

For the full list of nominees, go here~ Check back the comments for future quickie predictions.
