Oscars '09

The Oscar are on tonight! I'm so excited. I love award shows in general, but the Academy Awards are my favorite. I don't think I have missed a show since 5th grade. I have a special meal all planned out. I will be posting pictures don't worry. And I am going for my 3rd year in a row win. (Last year I beat the Boy with my picks, the year before we tied. So technically I am undefeated.) So here, officially, are my picks for the Academy Awards 2009:

Best Actor: Sean Penn - Milk
Best Supporting Actor: Heath Ledger - The Dark Knight
Best Actress: Kate Winslet - The Reader
Best Supporting Actress: Penelope Cruz - Vicky Christina Barcelona
Best Animated Feature Film: Wall-e
Best Art Direction: The Curious Case of Benjamin Button
Best Cinematography: Slumdog Millionaire
Best Costume: The Duchess
Best Director: Slumdog Millionaire
Best Documentary Feature: Trouble The Water
Best Documentary Short: The Witness - From the Balcony of Room 306
Best Film Editing: Slumdog Millionaire
Best Foreign Language Film: Waltz with Bashir
Best Make-Up: The Curious Case of Benjamin Button
Best Music (Score): Slumdog Millionaire
Best Music (Song): "Down to Earth" - Wall-e
Best Picture: Milk
Best Short Film (Animated): La Maison en Petits Cubes
Best Short Film (Live Action): Spielzeugland (Toyland)
Best Sound Editing: The Dark Knight
Best Sound Mixing: Wall-e
Best Visual Effects: The Curious Case of Benjamin Button
Best Writing (Adapted): Slumdog Millionaire
Best Writing (Original): Wall-e

Yes, I know I made some risky choices. Milk for Best Picture and Best Actor, could really curse me. But I don't know... it might work out that way. Also since I picked Milk for Best Picture I really should have picked it for Best Writing. I guess it could be better than to go 1 and 1 there than 0 and 2. (Of course 2 and 0 would be the best.) So cross your fingers for me!


P.S. The picture is me and my sistah (aka my godsister, bff and all that other stuff) outside the Chinese theater. Which is now right next to the Kodak Theater. Which is where the Oscars are! See it makes sense! We're with Judy Garland's hand prints. Who did not win Best Actress for Wizard of Oz. Instead it went to Vivian Leigh for Gone With the Wind. Which, yes, makes sense.


  1. i really really hope kate winslet wins

  2. AH! I JUST caught the very end, so I DID get to see Kate win!!! I'm so with you-she deserves it!

  3. Hey there!

    Glad to see we have a similar addiction to coffee...or its taste anyways ;)

    I haven't seen all the results from the oscars yet...but your list seems pretty spot on! Did you win??
