81st Academy Awards predictions

Richard Jenkins – The Visitor
Frank Langella – Frost/Nixon
Sean Penn – Milk
Brad Pitt – The Curious Case of Benjamin Button
Mickey Rourke – The Wrestler

Mickey Rourke as broken-down professional wrestler whose glory days are far behind him is the perfect role for him and he deserve and Oscar.

Anne Hathaway – Rachel Getting Married
Angelina Jolie – Changeling
Melissa Leo – Frozen River
Meryl Streep – Doubt
Kate Winslet – The Reader

All of them are great and it is very hard to predict, but I’m going for Kate Winslet performance on post-World War II drama The Reader

Josh Brolin – Milk
Robert Downey Jr. – Tropic Thunder
Philip Seymour Hoffman – Doubt
Heath Ledger – The Dark Knight
Michael Shannon – Revolutionary Road

Heath Ledger performance as Batman’s leading arch-enemy, the Joker, was nothing short of outstanding, turning the clownish villain into a face of nihilism that even audiences who were not fans of the comic books could appreciate.

Amy Adams – Doubt
Penelope Cruz – Vicky Cristina Barcelona
Viola Davis – Doubt
Taraji P. Henson – The Curious Case of Benjamin Button
Marisa Tomei – The Wrestler

Viola Davis character faces any parent’s worst fear: learning that your child may be the victim of sexual abuse.

Danny Boyle – Slumdog Millionaire
Stephen Daldry – The Reader
Clint Eastwood – Changeling
David Fincher – The Curious Case of Benjamin Button
Ron Howard – Frost/Nixon

Danny Boyle is great director and I love all his films. Slumdog Millionaire is a breathless, exciting story, heartbreaking and exhilarating film. Films like that remind us why we go to movies and why we love movies.

The Curious Case of Benjamin Button
The Reader
Slumdog Millionaire

I do believe that the winner of best Director will not be the same of best picture. The Curious Case of Benjamin Button will get the Oscar. I like the film but I think Slumdog Millionaire and The Reader are better movies. This is the Oscar.
