The Oscar nominations will be announced during the wee hours Tuesday. In the spirit of fun (and public embarrassment), I'm venturing a guess on what will be nominated for best pic. If I get two right, I'll be happy.
Here are my predictions:
"No Country for Old Men"
"There Will Be Blood"
What about you? Pick your poisons.
I think the following have a shot at unseating the above:
"The Great Debaters" (Go home team!)
"Into the Wild"
And of the pictures I've seen, I'd go for these:
"Eastern Promises" ("Shower scene" rivals "Psycho's.")
"Into the Wild" (Emile Hirsch. Period.)
"No Country for Old Men" (I'm still wetting my pants. Coens' best pic since "Fargo.")
"Ratatouille" (I don't care if it is animation. It deserves best pic consideration, and I'm still hungry.)
"Zodiac" (Craft is just as tight as "No Country for Old Men," though both pictures left me a bit cold.)
And I still need to see "There Will Be Blood!"
