The Stars Were Out Last Night!
What a star-studded night it was last night! I mean…it’s the Oscars and they’re always star-studded but you know what I’m saying. Steve Martin and Alec Baldwin did what they do best last night and that is ‘be funny’.
Kathryn Bigelow won Best Director, the first time a female director has ever done so. Every major acting category saw a first time winner; Jeff Bridges, Sandra Bullock, Christoph Waltz & Mo’Nique all won Oscars for the first time, the latter 3 of whom had been nominated for the first time.
Alright, you guys want me to get to how you guys did in predicting all these awards. Well, Swag Nation…you nailed 6 out of 10, which given the unpredictability of the Academy at times isn’t too bad.
You correctly predicted:
Actor in a Leading Role – Jeff Bridges, Crazy Heart
Actress in a Leading Role – Sandra Bullock, The Blind Side
Actress in a Supporting Role - Mo’Nique, Precious
Cinematography – Mauro Fiore, Avatar
Best Adapted Screenplay – Geoffrey Fletcher, Precious
Best Animated Film – Up
The 4 you missed…
you predicted that
Avatar would win Best Picture. Winner: The Hurt Locker
James Cameron would win Best Director. Winner: Kathryn Bigelow, The Hurt Locker
Matt Damon would win Best Actor in a Supporting Role. Winner: Christoph Waltz, Inglourious Basterds
Up would win Best Original Screenplay. Winner: Mark Boal, The Hurt Locker
If you recall, for every correct prediction, 3 Swag Bucks would be added to the Swag Code.
