It is time to roll out the red carpet, air the tuxedos and choose the best gowns. With the 85th Oscars around the corner, let’s speculate over the likely movies and artists to bag the coveted award:
The best lead actor might go to:
So far the favorite choice among critics and fans is the ‘Lincoln’ lead actor Daniel Day Lewis. The runner-up could be Jaoquin Phoenix of ‘The Master’ is also a favorite choice for the best lead actor award. Many more or less expect Mr. Lewis to grab the award this year.
The best lead actress award might go to:
This is still a touch call. The likely candidate is Jennifer Lawrence ‘Zero Dark Thirty’. The next most popular nominee is Jessica Chastain. Last year she was nominated for the supporting category but had to lose the award to the fellow cast mate Octavia Spencer. Will luck turn her favor this time?
The supporting category might go to:
It could be Philip Seymour Hoffman for ‘The Master’ and if he gets nominated it will be for the 5th time. The next option might be Tommy Lee Jones. The best supporting actress is equally balanced. It could be Anne Hathaway for ‘Les Miserables’ or Sally Field for ‘Lincoln’. Both of them are equally good.
The best animated movie might go to:
There is going to be a stiff competition for this category as it has been a strong year for animation. The best of the lot is ‘Frankenweenie’. The other likely option is ‘ParaNorman’. The sentimental favorite for many is ‘Rise of The Guardians’.
The best director might go to:
The list contains some top directors who have delivered the best last year. It could be Kathryn Bigelow for ‘Zero Dark Thirty’, Steven Spielberg for ‘Lincoln’, Ang Lee for Life of Pi, Paul Thomas Anderson for ‘The Master’. This is another hard call and the likely winners are all four!
The best picture might go to:
The ultimate award for a movie! ‘Zero Dark Thirty’ is a favorite choice. There are equally good movies like ‘Argo’ and ‘Lincoln’. Movies like ‘Les Miserables’ and ‘Silver Linings Playbook’ have earned critical acclaim.
The above may or may not enter the nomination list. Let’s wait and see who wins the ultimate award!
