The Tuesday Night Movies 2011 Oscar Predictions

Need some early help with your 2011 Oscars office pool? Tuesday Night Movies is here to help! All I ask is for a 10% cut.

Best Picture:
Out of the 10 Best Picture nominees, I have seen 9. I would like to see The Kids Are All Right before the Oscars are handed out, but I don’t think seeing it will change my pick here.

Should Win: Toy Story 3
Will Win: True Grit

Actor:
It’s a tough call between Jeff Bridges, Jesse Eisenberg and Colin Firth. As great as Jesse Eisenberg was with his quick talking monotone with his potrayal of Mark Zuckerberg, I’m going with…

Jeff Bridges, True Grit

Actress:
Natalie Portman, Black Swan

Supporting Actor:
Christian Bale, The Fighter

Supporting Actress:
Melissa Leo, The Fighter

Director:
This was the hardest category for me to choose a winner. I could see any of the nominees taking this one. I’m picking…

Joel & Ethan Cohen, True Grit

Animated Feature:
Toy Story 3

Adapted Screenplay:
The Social Network

Original Screenplay:
Inception

Best Foreign Language Film:
I actually didn’t see any of these. Not surprisingly, Mademoiselle Chambon didn’t make the list of nominees. I’m going to try to watch these between now and Oscar time.

Nominees I Have Not Seen Yet: The Kids Are All Right, The Illusionist, Blue Valentine, Rabbit Hole, Animal Kingdom, Another Year, Biutiful, Dogtooth, A Better World, Incendies, Outside the Law
