The Oscars – who SHOULD win…

They probably won't… but here's who should win at tonight's Oscars:

Best Film:
Good Night and Good Luck

Best Director:
Paul Haggis or Bennett Miller

Best Actor:
David Strathairn

Best Actress:
Felicity Huffman

Best Supporting Actor:
Jake Gyllenhaal (but not a particularly strong category)

Best Supporting Actress:
Rachel Weisz

Best Adapted Screenplay:
Capote

Best Original Screenplay:
Match Point

Best Documentary:
Murderball

Of those, I might get best actress and supporting actress right, and maybe adapted screenplay, but the rest of the awards will go to far less deserving films (in my opinion).

Incidentally, my top five Oscar-nominated films…

  • Good Night and Good Luck
  • Match Point
  • Crash
  • Murderball
  • Capote (admittedly, I've not seen it, but the writer's great and the performance of Philip Seymour Hoffman looks very good)

Now sit back and watch my predictions go up in flames…

    Any self respecting prediction for the oscars should be wrong. If you get it right, it shows no conception of merit in films :P

  2. Gosh you really did like Good Night and Good Luck!

    Match Point was fun, but surely not Best Original Screenplay? Just one or two too many lame moments surely?
