At this point I'd be really surprised if it wasn't Avatar. If I had my pick, I'd go for the following (in this order): Up, District 9 & Inglorious Basterds, Up in the Air and then Avatar...
Id be happy enough if Avatar wins, it's a good film (just not Cameron's best)
James Cameron, Avatar
Prior to watching The Hurt Locker I would have said Kathryn Bigelow, but I think this will go to Cameron as well. Would love to see Quentin win!
Jeff Bridges, Crazy Heart
Sandra Bullock, The Blind Side
I just think people would like to see her blub when she gets the award!
BEST SUPPORTING ACTRESS
BEST SUPPORTING ACTOR
Christoph Waltz, Inglourious Basterds
I really hope that this goes to Waltz...
BEST ADAPTED SCREENPLAY
Jason Reitman, Sheldon Turner, Up In The Air
A tough one to predict – but I'm going to go with the above. Never read the original source, but the story was good and certainly well written.
BEST ORIGINAL SCREENPLAY
Quentin Tarantino, Inglourious Basterds
Again, a tough one to predict, I think it is likely between Up and Inglorious Basterds... I think the Basterds may take it by the end of the night.
Coco Before Chanel
The Hurt Locker
FOREIGN LANGUAGE FILM
MUSIC: ORIGINAL SCORE
I'm going to go with Up for this one – which had a fantastic and moving score.
MUSIC: ORIGINAL SONG
Crazy Heart – The Weary Kind
SHORT FILM: ANIMATED
SHORT FILM: LIVE ACTION
ACHIEVEMENT IN SOUND MIXING
BEST ANIMATED PICTURE
I will officially cry if Up doesn't at least scoop this!
