And the Oscar goes to

As the Oscar steam train gains speed, nearing the platform of hysteria, and ready to make it's way down the ever ending carpet of "who are you are wearing?" I'm jumping on the band wagon and making predictions for the main categories, the nominees can be seen if full here.

Best Picture

Slumdog Millionaire given how many awards it's received already it seems the most likely.

Best Director

Usually links up with Best Picture so Danny Boyle.

Best Actor

Sean Penn, which may seem an odd choice given Mickey Rourke is favourite, but I think he might just have the edge with the politics of the film.

Best Actress

Kate Winslet, she's been nominated too many times.

Best Supporting Actor

Heath Ledger as Hollywood will want to honour him.

Best supporting Actress

I'm a little unsure on this, but two actress from the same film (Doubt) may split votes enough for Penelope Cruz.

Best Animation

Wall-E clear winner.

Best Foreign Film

Waltz with Bashir clear winner.

Best Original Screenplay

I'm drawn to Milk or Happy Go Lucky, I'm going for Happy Go Lucky though given that I think Sean Penn will win the Actor award.

Best Adapted Screenplay

Benjamin Button, it's got to win something.
