And the Award Goes To...

Well those of you that caught my post accepting my prestigious Stylish Blogger Award are well aware of my love of movies. As I said that day, I have seen all of the movies nominated for Oscars excepting two (127 Hours and Winter's Bone).

So what am I doing tonight? Watching the Oscars of course!
I know a lot of people probably find this type of evening exceedingly dull but I'm super excited that Oscar Night is finally here. #1 because I get to see all of the Hollywood Glitterati all dressed up (I'm a feminist but I still enjoy these things, it's true); and #2 because each year my family and I partake in an Oscar poll where we guess what movie/actor will win which award. I'm undefeated and I plan on staying that way! And the prize is massive, lemme tell ya. TEN WHOLE DOLLARS to the winner! I could buy a book with that cash!

So I'll share with you my predictions:
Best Picture: The King's Speech
Best Actress: Natalie Portman - Black Swan
Best Actor: Colin Firth - The King's Speech
Best Supporting Actress: Melissa Leo - The Fighter
Best Supporting Actor: Christian Bale - The Fighter
Best Animated Film: Toy Story 3
Best Director: David Fincher - The Social Network
Best Foreign Film: In a Better World (Denmark)

And those are the only categories my family includes in the poll. Wish me luck on winning the $10 :)

And we'll be back to our regular scheduled literary posting tomorrow, I promise! ;)

Found you on 20sb and I look forward to future posts. I love colin firth and think he's underrated so even though I didn't see the king's speech I hope he wins. Loved the black swan and am rooting for natalie!

$10, yay! That might even get you a feather on Sharon Stone's shoulder (was there an unfortunate bird-related accident there?).

Seriously, do you have a crystal ball? Uncanny...

@Caity, welcome aboard! And the two you were rooting for won :)

@Deborah, I'm always really good with my Oscar predictions, probably because I pay close attention to all the pre-Oscar awards and am an avid movie-watcher.

But YES!! I won the $10! And I only got 1 wrong (Tom Hooper won Best Director). Next year I strive to get every single one right!
