Oscar, Oscar, Oscar

Must I chime in with my opinions on who should win an Oscar? No, but here goes anyway!

Of the supporting actress nominees, I've only seen Taraji P. Henson in Benjamin Button so I'm hoping she does well because I loved her and thought her character was one of the best in the whole movie.

If Heath Ledger does not win best supporting actor I will eat a selection of my hats.

Kate Winslet needs her Oscar. It's not fair they haven't given her one yet, and The Reader is frikkin' fantastic. Of course I love Angelina Jolie too, and Changeling was amazing, so that is the only substitute I will accept, but Angie's already got an Oscar, so I'm sticking with Winslet. I will blubber when she wins, because I've loved her since Sense And Sensibility and I think I've made my point.

I'm leaving best actor up to the fates because I get the feeling Mickey Rourke is going to win but I haven't seen The Wrestler so I don't know.

I haven't seen all the best picture nominees, but of the ones I've seen Slumdog Millionaire wins everything. Just because.

I'm torn on cinematography and editing because I thought all the nominees did well, and I'm not even touching best song this year because I ♥ Peter Gabriel but I also ♥ the songs from Slumdog Millionaire so...I guess I'm not picking too many of these, eh? Why wasn't the song from Australia nominated? Why wasn't the song from Bolt nominated, for that matter?

Bolt was the only animated film I saw of the nominees so therefore it must win and why wasn't Wanted up for visual effects or editing? It's up for sound, what was the sound doing all by itself? Whooshing through the air in an arc?

Oh no, I'm getting the Oscar headache already....

I *HEART* Heath Ledger's Joker performance! A well-deserved Oscar, tho sadly posthumous.

RH! Yeah, Ledger's Joker blew me away, he's right up there with Hamill's for me, though. ;)

I thought the way they handled giving him the Oscar was pretty classy, too, but I get sappy at times. Plus I'm a sap for Kevin Kline...good thing Otto and The Joker never got together, although I'd love every psychotic minute of it. ^_^
