Oscar Countdown

Five sleeps to go, five sleeps to go....

I am fully aware that the oscars are rigged - I mean how else did Gwyneth win for Shakespeare in Love? Miramax bought her an Oscar.
But, along with my decision to worship at the altar of celebrity, award ceremonies are religious events for me, and as religious events goes, the Oscars are my Christmas. I would rather work Christmas day and have Oscar day off (so I can avoid media reports). Yes, I am aware that I am sad.

OK, my predictions for this year are:

Best Actor: Forrest Whittakker, The Last King of Scotland

Best Actress: Helen Mirren, The Queen

Best Supporting Actress: Jennifer Hudson, Dreamgirls (Although I would LOVE it if Abigail Breslen managed an upset).

Best Supporting Actor: Eddie Murphy, Dreamgirls (Although I don't think he deserves it - if Russell Crowe misses out for being a thug off screen, Eddie Murphy should miss out for what he has done to Melane Brown (Scary Spice)).

Best Picture: Babel (Although, again, I would LOVE it if Little Miss Sunshine managed an upset.

I don't have any idea about the other categories.
I'm getting the popcorn ready.....
