Oscar picks and Oscar Podcast
It is Oscar night, one of the biggest nights on the Sully calendar.
So before the ceremony, I am going to make my official picks. These are not necessarily who I WANT to win (Lincoln was my favorite movie of the year) but who I think WILL win.
Here at the official Sully picks:
BEST PICTURE: Argo BEST DIRECTOR: Steven Spielberg, Lincoln BEST ACTOR: Daniel Day Lewis, Lincoln BEST ACTRESS: Jennifer Lawrence, Silver Linings Playbook BEST SUPPORTING ACTOR: Robert DeNiro, Silver Linings Playbook BEST SUPPORTING ACTRESS: Anne Hathaway, Les Miserables BEST ORIGINAL SCREENPLAY: Quentin Tarantino, Django Unchained BEST ADAPTED SCREENPLAY: Chris Terrio, Argo
BEST ANIMATED FEATURE: Brave BEST FOREIGN LANGUAGE FILM: Amour BEST DOCUMENTARY FEATURE: Searching for Sugarman
BEST ORIGINAL SONG: Skyfall BEST ORIGINAL SCORE: Life of Pi BEST CINEMATOGRAPHY: Skyfall BEST EDITING: Argo BEST SOUND EDITING: Argo BEST SOUND: Les Miserables BEST VISUAL EFFECTS: Life of Pi BEST COSTUME DESIGN: Les Miserables BEST PRODUCTION DESIGN: Les Miserables BEST MAKEUP: Les Miserables
BEST DOCUMENTARY SHORT: Kings Point BEST ANIMATED SHORT: Paperman BEST LIVE ACTION SHORT: Death of a Shadow
So I have Argo being the second film since 1933 to win Best Picture without a Best Director nomination. That would give producers George Clooney and Ben Affleck each their second Oscar.
Quentin Tarantino will also probably win his second Oscar. I also have Daniel Day Lewis and Robert DeNiro becoming three time Oscar winners. And I have Steven Spielberg winning #4.
And Skyfall cinematographer Roger Deakins should win a long over due Oscar. He was the cinematographer for The Shawshank Redemption, Fargo, No Country for Old Men, True Grit and many other beautifully shot pictures.
I talk Oscars and about other baseball movie topics on today's podcast.
Enjoy the show tonight.
