My main picks for the Oscars all came true! I’m a cognoscenti now. Here are the winners that I’d previously predicted:
Best Picture: No Country For Old Men. I had this one pegged back in early January
Best Actor: Daniel Day-Lewis. Very hard to beat at his best, which I noted in the same article.
Best Supporting Actor: Javier Bardem. See my review of his performance in No Country For Old Men here.
Best Supporting Actress: Tilda Swinton. Michael Clayton really brought out her finest work in a long time. A very well deserved award!
And, to allow you to fully probe the depths of my Oscar prognosticating goodness, I predicted after I saw it that Ratatouille would win the Best Animated Film Oscar. You could see that one coming a mile off, it was that good.
I missed on Best Director – I thought it would probably go to Paul Thomas Anderson for There Will Be Blood, but it went to Joel & Ethan Coen.
Congratulations to all the winners! I had a decent year in 2007 with the best pictures.
