2009 Oscar Predictions

As tired as this is, what self-respecting film geek wouldn't offer their Oscar predictions?

My predictions:

  • Best Picture: Slumdog Millionare
  • Best Director: Danny Boyle, Slumdog Millionaire
  • Best Actor: Prop 8 backlash gives this award to Sean Penn over Mickey Rourke
  • Best Actress: Kate Winslet
  • Best Supporting Actor: Heath Ledger. That's a gimme.
  • Best Supporting Actress: Penelope Cruz

I didn't originally prognosticate the nominees for these categories, but the winners seem so straightforward, and I may need the bonus points when some of my major category predictions fall short.
  • Best Animated feature: Wall*E
  • Best Documentary: Man on Wire
  • Visual Effects: The Curious Case of Benjamin Button

Last year I was 75% accurate. The actress categories killed me. I predict that if I do worse again, it will be because of those categories again. I think that I can do better this year.

I do agree with you, but I hope the winners are not the same as the SAGs or the BAFTAs.
