I am very excited to watch the finality of the year’s best. Like every year Ill be celebrating the awards with a few friends (and other film addicts) and a few drinks, in the style of cosmos and brownies. :D
The show will be hosted by Anne Hathaway and James Franco, the due will likely bring a fresh spin to the opening sequence, as both actors can act, sing, and have great comedic timing.
Comparably, 2010-2011 nominated movies improved so much versus the slim pickin’s of last year’s nominees. I have seen eight of the ten movies nominated, and they are...
*** Movies I did not see
Now here are my top picks for some categories.....
Best Actress: Natalie Portman, portraying two sides of a person’s psyche is a difficult thing to master, and she painted it for the audience with great chaotic entanglement. Great roles are often those with inner turmoil and anguish. This part was meant for Oscar worth, Natalie Portman deserves to win this year.
Best Actor: You already know who I am championing in this category. James Franco takes the lead for my guess for this category. Honestly, I use to think I could not take this guy seriously. Wow, I was wrong with that? Huh? But the thing that won me over was his seriousness for variety. He wanted to be in daytime television, he did it. Wanted to write a book and he actually wrote a book. I look to him as somewhat a hero for doing what he set out to doing. Besides all that I loved his performance in this movie, he was able to bring forward sensitivity to a self diluted man, who needed remembering the importance of life. Without any other actors to enhance his performance, he was left to the task himself. It is hard to get in the mind of someone trying to survive in a secluded situation. Seeing his performance you can actually feel like a fly in the wall and being in the moment. I cannot wait.
Best Supporting Actress:Melissa Leo
Best Supporting Actor:Christian Bale, he needs to win, he has come a long way since newsies. One of the few very committed actors, he exemplifies great discipline and he has come a long way. He deserves to win this.
Best Director:David Fincher, I love his style, and I feel he should be rewarded it this year for it.
Adapted Screenplay:True Grit – The Coen brothers
Inception: Christopher Nolan
Simply because it was sunshine after superhero reboot rain.
