Even though I'm not too psyched for this year's Academy Awards, I still feel obligated to throw my picks out there.
Best Picture: Avatar
Best Director: James Cameron, Avatar
Best Leading Actor: Jeff Bridges, Crazy Heart
Best Leading Actress: Sandra Bullock, The Blind Side
Best Supporting Actor: Christoph Waltz, Inglourious Basterds
Best Supporting Actress: Mo'Nique, Precious
Best Original Screenplay: The Hurt Locker
Best Adapted Screenplay: Up in the Air
Best Animated Feature: Up
Yup, these are pretty much the same picks I made when I put out my nomination predictions, mostly because this year seems to be so underwhelming due to the fact that Avatar took an early lead. I think this is why I'm been so blase´ about this year's awards. They're too predictable, and the only real surprise will happen if The Hurt Locker beats Avatar, but even that wouldn't be a shocker.
