I love the glitz and the glamour of Oscar Night. I love to watch all of the beautiful people arrive in their finest and do a personal critique of their dresses. Yes, I like to see who wins, but often that is the sideshow for me. Not so this year. Amazingly I have been able to see a few of the nominated performances this year so I am much more interested in who wins. I’ve bolded the ones I’m hoping will win.
Argo – Sad I haven’t seen this one
Beasts of the Southern Wild
Les Miserables – Good
Life of Pi
Lincoln – Good
Silver Linings Playbooks – Very good
Zero Dark Thirty – Had no desire to see it but I did and was impressed.
Jessica Chastain – She carried a very good film
Jennifer Lawrence – Quirky and loveable.
Naomi Watts – I want to see this one!
Bradley Cooper – Gets to show his talent (and his good looks)
Daniel Day-Lewis – Totally got lost in the part
Hugh Jackman – Was very good.
Joaquin Phoenix – Love him so I don’t know why I haven’t seen the movie.
Denzel Washington – He did a great job even if the movie left me feeling sad.
BEST SUPPORTING ACTRESS
Sally Field – She was a little annoying in the role of Lincoln’s wife.
Anne Hathaway – Totally nailed it.
Jacki Weaver – Um, okay. Liked her but not what I consider one of the 5 best performances of the year.
BEST SUPPORTING ACTOR
Robert DeNiro – Excellent
Philip Seymour Hoffman
Tommy Lee Jones
So, who has your vote tonight?
