****As a companion to this excellent thread, I’d love to hear your predictions for who will be nominated and for what.
I’m mostly interested to hear which ten films you believe will be nominated for Best Picture, and also who you believe will recieve nominations in all four acting categories. If you’d like to give your prediction for which film will get the most nominations, let’s hear it (along with how many nominations you expect the film to get).
I think ***Inception ***may lead the overall nomination count with nods for Director, Picture, O. Screenplay , Score, Art Direction, Cinematography, Sound Editing and Mixing, and Visual Effects. So that’s 8 nods.
***Social Network ***won’t be far behind with 7 nods, I predict… I expect it to get nominated for Picture, Director, Best Actor, Best Supporting Actor, Screenplay (would it be adapted since its based on court transcripts, or original?), Cinematography, Editing, and Score.
*Kings Speech *should be in the top of the mix there also with Picture, Director, Writing, Actor, Supporting Actor, maybe Supporting Actress, Cinematography, Costume, and Art Direction. Honestly, now that I write it all out I could see this film ending up with the most nominations overall.
For Best Picture, I expect to see the following nominated:
The Kids Are All Right
Toy Story 3
and for my “wild card” slot I’d like to see either Scott Pilgrim or Kick-Ass make the cut. Or even Shutter Island or Ghost Writer.
Anyway, what do the rest of you think?
