On February 26th, exactly one week from today, television will host the single biggest night in the movie business: The Academy Awards. Sure, there are plenty of other award ceremonies and festivals, but this is the Babe Ruth of movie awards. There are always upsets and surprising happenings that always ensure a good time and an entertaining watch.
To prepare for the big night, I will be doing a countdown, where every day this week, I will post my predictions for seven major categories [Best film, director, actor, actress, supporting actor, and supporting actress, and original screenplay], starting with supporting roles, then leading roles, director, and finally, on Oscar Sunday, best film.
I recognize that the Academy and I have different views and opinions, so I think I’ll give two winners for each category: who I think will win, and which nominee was my personal favorite.
So get ready to fill out your predictions! In one week we will be sitting in our family rooms watching the greatest night for movies!
