i just got done watching the oscars. my predictions in the major categories were:
best supporting actor – javier bardeim
best supporting actress – tilda swinton
best actor – daniel day lewis
best actress – marion cotillard
best animated – persepolis, i can’t believe that surf’s up is in the same category.
best director – Paul Thomas Anderson – there will be blood
best movie – there will be blood
i was only wrong on the last three.
the show itself was really entertaining this year. jon stewart did a really good job as host and the award speeches were cut very short. there were still plenty of montages and needles speeches about the accounting firm, which i have to say were done really well. i wonder if jon stewart brought his writers from the daily show with him?
also some soldier named joseph smith said one of the nominees, that was a bit surreal.
