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~~

Less than a month to Oscar, 4 films I’m dying to see~~ *cross fingers*

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?

I NEVER EVER do nomination predictions… and considering my Golden Globes winner predictions, consider this attempt of mine at predicting a bit rubbish.

Oscar nominations are in about 9 days… and BAFTA nominations are in 2 days. O.O

With that said, I also found another problem… not knowing what films are considered withing the date range, so I am ONLY using films that are listed on IMDb as 2008 productions.

Also, I’m predicting almost all categories, including technical awards like Best Film Editing, Best Visual Effects – except Documentary Short, Short Film Animated, Short Film Live Action… because I haven’t seen any shorts. Also no prediction on Documentary Feature. Is Man on Wire a lock on that???

Here I go… predictions after the break~~~

GGs are so close!
