It’s Oscar time again and we've put together a list of predictions for the top five categories to help you dominate your Oscar pool.
When I was watching The Artist, It made me so happy that the spirit of classic films have come back. I hope it will start a trend that will enable many forgotten classics to become popular with today’s audiences again.
Berenice Bejo in The Artist had to portray emotion without speaking, her performance was exquisite so I predict that she’ll win Best Supporting Actress. To maintain a fine line between paying tribute to the elegance of actresses such as Leslie Caron (GiGi) and not crossing over into sentimentality is extremely difficult, I think she deserves to win.
Best Supporting Actor will most likely go to Christopher Plummer for Beginners. There really are no words to describe such a talent and we all wished he had been nominated for The Sound of Music so hopefully he’ll win this time around. It would also be fitting in the spirit of Classic Films since Plummer as performed with such greats in the past like Gregory Peck.
After 17 Nominations and two Oscar wins, I really hope that Meryl Streep wins Best Actress for The Iron Lady. Again, she is a classic.
Jean Dujardin will most likely win for Best Actor in The Artist, his ability to capture just the right tone of silent movies without coming across as a ham will lead him to win it.
Best Director will go to Michel Hazanavicius for The Artist and I think we all know that the film is most likely to win Best Picture.
If you feel like watching a silent gem to get you in the Oscar Mood, don’t miss Charlie Chaplin’s Modern Times. I’m sure many Oscar parties tonight will have a Classic Movie Theme. Have a great night of glitz and glamour!
