final pre-show thoughts
25 minutes to go. honestly, i am kinda more exhausted than usual with the buildup to this year's oscars, and i'm more or less ready for this to be over. here is what i would like to happen:1.
darren aronofsky miraculously walks away with the best director award2.
the social network loses best score. (bonus: a.r. rahmann surprises with the win for 127 hours)3.
dogtooth wins best foreign language film. or, at the very least, incendies loses.4.
best picture: anything but the social network
now, that being said, here's what's going to happen1.
the king's speech wins just four awards for actor, screenplay art direction and costume design2.
the social network wins screenplay, cinematography, editing, score, sound and picture (6 total)3.
hailee steinfeld wins best supporting actress (i'm getting more and more sure of this) the only award for true grit. 4.
the show itself will suck painfully.
let's see how my predictions work out.
