2009 Academy Awards – Final Predictions
Alright you guys, I’m sorry I haven’t updated in awhile, life’s gotten a bit stressful. That being said THE OSCARS are tomorrow. This has been one of the most stressful awards seasons since I started following the Oscars all those years ago. These are my final predictions and, as always, I’ll be live-blogging the show on my tumblr. So here goes nothing.
Can Sandy Win the Oscar?
Or can the Academy live with themselves if she wins the Oscar the day after she wins the Razzie, for which she’s almost guaranteed to win for All About Steve.
My Oscar Nominations Predictions
The Academy Award nominations will be announced at 5:30AM PST tomorrow, February 2nd. I’ve got predictions for 10 of the 24 categories. I’m also going to supply some alternates. I love being able to predict what the nominations will be, but at the same time, it would be nice for some surprises to sneak in there too!
- (500) Days of Summer
- An Education
- District 9
- The Hangover
- The Hurt Locker
- Inglourious Basterds
- Star Trek
- Up In The Air
(Alternates: Up, Invictus, A Serious Man)

As shocking (and for many, upsetting) as Avatar‘s win over The Hurt Locker and Inglourious Basterds is, it doesn’t mean it’ll take the top prize at the Oscars in March. It’ll be nom’d for sure, but that really is all that’s certain at this point.
Top Fifteen Movies of 2009
Here’s my list of my Top 15 movies of the year. I really loved movies this year and there was just no way I could do just a Top Ten this year. Granted, I haven’t seen a lot of the “end of the year oscar buzz” movies, so perhaps after I get to see them later in the year this list would change, but as it stands now, this is my list.
