Stumped on your Oscar picks? Andy Saur can help!
Thought about your Oscar picks yet? Not quite sure who deserves to take that golden statue home? Well if you are looking for some insight into who the potential winners could be, look no further. Andy Saur – film reviewer extraordinaire is your answer. Andy has really great thoughts and insight into who the winners will be this year. I may not necessarily agree with all of his choices or his reviews on certain films, but damn I respect them. I have my choices for this year, and we have agreed on some of the winners.
We both agree that No Country for Old Men will win best picture, even though Andy was not such a fan of the film. I on the other hand loved it. One of my favorites of the year. But we both agree that it hits the right criteria that the Oscars voters look for. Most of the other categories are shoe-ins, which both Andy and I agree upon. Daniel Day-Lewis has got the best actor statue. Javier Bardem and Cate Blanchett will be winners in the supporting categories, but there is one category where both Andy and myself do not quite know what is going to happen: Actress in a leading role. Everybody is rooting for Ellen Page to win for her quirky performance in Juno (Andy review), but both of us agree that it is just not going to happen. Both Cate Blanchett and Laura Linney were good, but not good enough, and if Cate Blanchett didn’t win for Elizabeth the first time around, it’s not going to happen this time, because the sequel apparently sucked. So it’s pretty much down to Julie Christie and Marion Cotillard. I have yet to see either of these films. I would really like to see them, so I really can’t say who will win, but most of the buzz has been between the both of them. My chose Julie Christie and Andy chose Marion Cotillard. So we shall see who comes out on top on Sunday.
Who are your choices for this Sunday’s Oscars? Let me know and check out Andy Saur’s website for some great reviews and thoughts on film.
