Steve’s Oscar Predictions Updated with Results

Best Picture

Will Win: The King’s Speech

Should Win: Black Swan (or Social Network)

Did Win: The King’s Speech (not a bad choice, just not the best movie this year)

Best Actor

Will Win: Colin Firth (I love Jeff Bridges, however Colin should have won last year, so this will make up for that, but…)

Should Win: Jesse Eisenberg

Did Win: Colin Firth

Best Actress

Will and Should Win: Natalie Portman

Did Win: Natalie Portman (at least she didn’t do that embarrassing laugh this time)

Best Supporting Actress

Will Win: Melissa Leo or Hailee Steinfeld (tough call, both deserving)

Should Win: Jacki Weaver (because this great movie deserves something)

Did Win: Melissa Leo (she was quite good in the Fighter, but maybe that’s because the F word comes so naturally to her)

Best Supporting Actor

Will and Should Win: Christian Bale

Did Win: Christian Bale (some say he overacted, but I think he nailed the role)

Two Awards That Pleased Me The Most

Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross for Original Score (I’m a big Nine Inch Nails fan.  I thought King’s Speech would get this as part of its momentum towards Best Picture and because the academy just wouldn’t get Trent’s music, but fortunately I was wrong.)

Randy Newman for Best Song (only his 2nd win in 20 nominations!)
