Tonight is the BIG night for the movie industry-Oscar night. It’s a BIG night for me and my gal pals too. It is our annual Oscar party. The time when we can hang out and eat horribly unhealthy food, talk about how ugly that dress is and how good Brad and Angelina look together. Think of it as our version of a Girl’s Night Out Superbowl Party.
This has been a big year for The Artist, Octavia Spencer, Alexander Payne and (finally) for Viola Davis. But who will take home the ‘golden boy’ tonight? Here are my predictions for who will probably win and who I want to win. What are your thoughts on tonight’s Academy Awards?
Who Will Win: The Artist
Who I Want to Win: The Help or Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close
Actor in a Leading Role
Who Will Win: Jean Dujardin in The Artist
Who I Want to Win: George Clooney in The Descendants

Who Will Win: Christopher Plummer in Beginners
Who I Want to Win: Max von Sydow in Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close

Who I Want to Win and Who will Win: Viola Davis in The Help This is Viola’s year. Let’s hope Hollywood producers start lining up to offer her bigger and better roles.
Actress in a Supporting Role
Who I Want to Win and Who will Win: Octavia Spencer in The Help Octavia has already won the Golden Globe, the SAG, the BAFTA and a ton of other awards for her role as the sassy maid in The Help. I hope the Academy follows suit.
Who will Win: The Tree of Life – Emmanuel Lubezki I didn’t understand one thing about this movie, but I have to admit that the cinematography was stunning.
Who I Want to Win: Hugo – Robert Richardson
Who will Win: The Artist – Mark Bridges
Who I Want to Win: Jane Eyre – Michael O’Connor
Who will Win: The Artist – Michel Hazanavicius He won the Directors Guild Award. I guess that seals it!
Who I Want to Win: Hugo – Martin Scorsese This is the man who directed Raging Bull and Good Fellas, then he brings to life this wonderful children’s story. That take skills!
