Fearless Oscar Predictions

Every year I try to guess who’ll win at the Oscars. For an amateur Oscar historian I think I do fairly well, and though I haven’t had a ton of time this year to pay as close attention as I’d like here are my picks.

Picture:  Slumdog Millionaire
Director: Danny Boyle, Slumdog Millionaire
Actor: Sean Penn, Milk
Actress: Kate Winslet, The Reader
Supporting Actor: Heath Ledger, The Dark Knight
Supporting Actress: Viola Davis, Doubt
Original Screenplay: Wall-E
Adapted Screenplay: Slumdog Millionaire
Animated Film: Wall-E
Foreign-Language Film: Departures
Documentary: Man on Wire

Cinematography: The Curious Case of Benjamin Button
Art Direction: The Curious Case of Benjamin Button

Biggest crossing-fingers moment? If by some sort of miracle, somehow, amazingly that Heath Ledger is upset and Kirk Lazarus Robert Downey Jr. grabs the prize.
