79th Academy Award Predictions

Just Hours away the winners will be announced for this year's academy awards and my wife and I have finalized our picks...

It's scary because my wife is getting better at knowing what's going on in Academy Award World and so her predicts are as equally as viable as mine and it would of course be very sad if she were to beat me on account of catagories like animated short and so forth. And it's a fun year because we both have selected different Best Pictures as well. Who know's we could both be wrong if Babel takes the prize.

Here are my picks.

Picture – The Departed
Director – Martin Scorsese, The Departed
Actor – Forrest Whitaker, Last King of Scotland
Actress – Helen Mirren, The Queen
Supporting Actor – Alan Arkin, Little Miss Sunshine
Supporting Actress – Jennifer Hudson, Dreamgirls
Original Screenplay - Babel
Adapted Screenplay – The Departed
Animated Film - Cars
Foreign Language Film – Pan’s Labyrinth
Documentary – Iraq in Fragments
Editing – Children of Men
Cinematography – Children of Men
Art Direction – Pan’s Labyrinth
Costume Design - Dreamgirls
Make-up – Pan’s Labyrinth
Sound Mixing - Dreamgirls
Sound Editing – Letters from Iwo Jima
Visual Effects – Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest
Original Score – The Queen
Original Song – “Listen,” Dreamgirls
Animated Short Film – Little Match Girl
Live Action Short Film – Helmer & Son
Documentary Short – The Blood of Yingzhou District

I have Departed, Dreamgirls, and Pan's Labyrinth each winning 3 awards by nights end (the Queen with 2, Little Miss Sunshine, Babel, and Letters from Iwo Jima with 1)

Awesome job on all the big awards, bro.

Glad to see Martin Scorsese finally win, and The Departed take Best Picture.

If I counted correctly, you beat your wife by 2 correct guesses (13 vs. 11). You both beat me - I only had 10 right!
