Re: Who’s Gonna Win

Hey, I did all right with my Oscar guesses. True, everything I got right was obvious, and I missed the big’un (the New York Times guy called it, though). But whatever.

Best actor: CORRECT.

Best supporting actor: CORRECT.

Best actress: CORRECT.

Best supporting actress: WRONG. (I have no idea what I was thinking. Nobody saw Junebug.)

Art direction: WRONG.

Directing: CORRECT.

Documentary feature: WRONG. (I let myself get psyched out. It’s a Red America nod—avec delicious irony, because it’s French—and it made big bucks.)

Doc short: WRONG.

Best picture: WRONG.

Adapted screenplay: CORRECT.

Original screenplay: WRONG.

Costume design (in Comments): CORRECT.

6/12= 50%. I predicted 40.

Oh, and confidential to Josh Feit: Actually, Brokeback Mountain lost for double-reverse backflip reasons: Nothing is so universal as Los Angeles.

Why isn't anyone talking about the interpretive dancing during the musical numbers?!?!

Because the song from "Crash" has caused me to renounce my interest in music forever. It was worse than the beatnik parody in "Funny Face".

Did you want Amy Adams to win, or just think that she was going to win? Or both?

She was certainly the best part of Junebug, but that's not saying a whole lot.

i thought she was going to win, for some reason. i didn't like junebug; it was too much conflicted southern self-hatred for me.
