Here is our list of Oscar wants in the top categories. These are not predictions, rather the wins we would like to see. What we’re saying is, don’t use this to fill out your Oscar pool. We will be live tweeting the Oscars tonight, follow us @AndSeenReviews. Happy Oscars everyone!
While it doesn’t have the spectacle of the some of the other nominees it was a perfect storm of entertaining, edge-of-your-seat, and based on a true story.
If we were actors nominated in this category (which would be incredible since neither of us are men) we would probably just gracefully bow out. We’d take the nominee gift bag, of course, but agree the statuette belongs to Danny Day.
If they really do award Oscars for being ugly, Naomi brought it in this. Heartbreak and triumph in the true story of a family separated in the tsunami. She even shows a little boob. That’s better than a dance sequence academy, right? No?
One of us here at And Seen is fairly obsessed with Christoph Waltz. Hint: it’s not Traci or Ryan. This award is often up early, so if he doesn’t win look for our live tweeting to take a very negative spin.
You cut your hair, you get an Oscar. Them’s the rules. She is only in the movie for about 15 minutes but she owns that 15 minutes. Passionate singing, ugly crying, love of a daughter causing her to become a prostitute…just give her the award already!
Affleck was snubbed so our vote goes to Ang Lee for bringing such a beautiful story to life. Plus it was one of the first times we were able to tolerate 3-D in a film, that’s worth an award in our minds.
