The 85th Annual Academy Awards have come and gone. So have my picks. This year, I got extremely bold and actually tried to make some choices as soon as the nominations came out on January 11th. That was dumb. On the other hand, if they would’ve come through I wouldve been a genius, but “genius” and “Dino” are seldom used in the same sentence unless it’s “Dino had lunch with a genius.”
The only pick I got right was Daniel Day Lewis for portraying Abraham Lincoln, and hard was that? The neighbor’s dog picked Lewis to win. My other picks did not come to any type of Oscar fruition.
I chose Tommy Lee Jones to win Best Supporting Actor. Wrong. I picked Helen Hunt to Win Best Supporting Actress. Not even on the radar. I picked Spielberg for Best Director once Affleck was out of the mix. Life of Pi had more life in it apparently and Ang Lee won. And for Best Picture I chose LINCOLN, thinking the Academy wouldnt want egg on its face for snubbing Affleck as Director and consequently wouldn’t allow ARGO to win Best Picture. Wrong again. So, all in all this year- I blew it. Well…not completely. I did pick SKYFALL for Best Sound Editing.
