With this Sunday's telecast of the Oscars just around the corner, I am really excited. It is just a great time to honor a year in art, performance, film and above all else creativity. This year, unlike years past, has been the closest race of any Oscar's I can think of. After viewing all the films nominated, and others from the year, here are my picks for the 10 Best Films of 2008 as well as my picks in the top 10 categories. The Hugh Jackman hosted Academy Awards will be this Sunday at 7 on ABC.
10 BEST FILMS OF 2008:
1- Slumdog Millionaire
2- Miracle At Saint Anna
3- The Dark Knight
4- The Wrestler
5- Frost / Nixon
7- In Bruges
My Oscar Picks for 10 Catergories:
Mickey Rourke (Though this really could go to Sean Penn or Frank Langella)
Kate Winslet (Though this could go to Meryl Streep)
Best Supporting Actor-
Best Supporting Actress-
Best Screenplay (Original)-
Milk (Though this really should go to In Bruges, unfortunatly it wont win)
Best Screenplay (Adapted)-
Best Original Song-
BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN! Ok, I know he was not nominated, but honestly he had the best original song from any film this year. Being serious, the winner should be...
AR Rahman for "Jai Ho" from Slumdog Millionaire
So those are just a taste of my picks, we have to wait till Sunday to see who takes home what!
