This is a neat little game I play with a few friends from around the globe. We all pick our contenders for the Oscars before the finalists are announced and then refine our picks once the announcement has been made. Let's see your picks for the main categories. Picks should be based on who you think will win. If it's really tough to pick just one, give an either/or! Without further a-do, here be mine: Best Picture Avatar Best Director James Cameron - Avatar OR Kathryn Bigelow - The Hurt Locker Best Actor Jeff Bridges - A Crazy Heart Best Actress Sandra Bullock - The Blind Side Best Supporting Actor Christopher Waltz - Inglourious Basterds Best Supporting Actress Mo'nique - Precious Best Animated Feature Up EDIT - And as always, a nod but unlikely a win for Meryl Streep.
