Oh, I don't know...

Tonight are the 81st annual Academy Awards. Even the name has a magical ring to it, doesn't it? Academy Awards; Oscars. My favorite thing to do is to pick who will win, and who should win. Last year my picks were all 100% correct, much to my amazement. Can anyone remember who they were? The best actress award went to Marion Cotillard for her amazing portrayal of Édith Piaf in "La Vie En Rose". As soon as I saw the movie, I knew she had won. This year I watched an absolutely wonderful movie called "The Visitor" starring Richard Jenkins, and he has been nominated for best actor for his role in the movie. He won't win, of course; the Oscar will go to either Mickey Rourke for "The Wrestler" or Sean Penn for "Milk".
This year I have not seen all the films nominated, so I can only speculate as to whom the winners might be, so here are my guesses for the top six awards.
Best actress: Kate Winslet
Best actor: Mickey Rourke
Best supporting actress: Viola Davis
Best supporting actor: Heath Ledger
Best movie: "Slumdog Millionaire"
Best animated movie: "Wall-E"
"Wall-E" just happens to be my favorite movie this year, and one of my all-time favorite movies. Here is a clip from it. Ta-da!
