2013 Oscar Predictions


Greetings! I know it has been a while since my last post, so I thought to kick-off my first post of the new year I would shine a spotlight on a little broadcast known as the Academy Awards, aka the Oscars.

Despite the fact that the Oscars are too long every year, I still sit down at 7:30 sharp to watch them. The past few years some friends of mine and I have been casting our own Oscar predictions (using this lovely little ballot) to make things a bit more exciting. Granted, we have not seen every film like the Academy has, but it’s still fun to predict the winners. Here are some of my predictions for this year, and not to toot my own horn but I got a lot of these categories right last year. My predictions are partly based on my own personal opinion, however they are primarily based upon how these films and actors have done at other awards shows such as the Golden Globes, SAG Awards, Critics’ Choice Awards, etc.

Best Picture Argo

Leading Actor – Daniel Day-Lewis

Supporting Actor – Christoph Waltz

Leading Actress – Jennifer Lawrence

Supporting Actress – Anne Hathaway

I stand by these predictions and I am looking forward to seeing the outcome tonight on ABC. What do you guys think, am I spot on or way off base? Let me know in the comments!
