Oscar Predictions: 2010 Films
February 7, 2010 by 3 Comments
Since lists are my thing, I would like to make an early prediction for the 2010 Oscars. The movies in 2010 look very good and interesting, such as the Cronenbergesque Repo Men, or the riveting crime thriller Brooklyn's Finest, which actually puts Richard Geere, Ethan Hawke, and Wesley Snipes together. Wow. Since I am looking forward to so many movies this year, which is actually a shock since I had only looked forward to three movies last year (Avatar, Moon & Inglourious Basterds) and so many turned out to be great, though many sucked something fierce (Transformers 2, Paranormal Activity, Knowing, Miss March, The Unborn and the granddaddy of them all Terminator: Salvation). Here are my Oscar predictions for 2010: Best Picture: Shutter Island The Rum Diary Arrested Development Repo Men Brooklyn's Finest RoboCop Alice in Wonderland Inception The Three Stooges Robin Hood Winner: Shutter Island. Why: Scorsese, along with that its the best book ever. Best Actor: Leonardo DiCaprio - Inception Leonardo DiCaprio - Shutter Island The Rum Diary - Johnny Depp Josh Brolin - Jonah Hex Denzel Washington - The Book of Eli Jude Law - Repo Men Winner: Leonardo DiCaprio - Shutter Island. Why: Its Leo in a Scorsese film. Best Actress: Cate Blanchett - Robin Hood Winner: Cate Blanchett - Robin Hood. Why: Cate Blanchett is in a movie with a leading role. Best Original Screenplay: Inception The Book of Eli Repo Men Brooklyn's Finest Arrested Development Winner: Inception. Why: Nolan Brothers doing something besides Batman. Always a plus. Best Adapted Screenplay: Shutter Island The Rum Diary Jonah Hex The Three Stooges RoboCop Alice in Wonderland Winner: Shutter Island. Why: It was the best book ever, so it'll win the best screenplay. Best Director: Martin Scorsese - Shutter Island Ridley Scott - Robin Hood Christopher Nolan - Inception Bruce Robinson - The Rum Diary Mitchell Hurwitz - Arrested Development Winner: Martin Scorsese - Shutter Island. Why: His Oscar history with Leonardo DiCaprio. Well, there you have it. Please comment on this by saying how YOU think it will go down.
