It's that time of year again, y'alls!

Here are my sexually explicit (not) Oscar predictions:

Performance by an actor in a leading role
Don Cheadle in “Hotel Rwanda”
Johnny Depp in “Finding Neverland”
Leonardo DiCaprio in “The Aviator”
Clint Eastwood in “Million Dollar Baby”
Jamie Foxx in “Ray”

Can I just say something before y'all just think I'm saying I should win because I'm a selfish cunt? Thanks. Okay, I'm saying this from a perfectly unbiased side. I actually went out and saw all these films, just so I could have the most bestest opinion. You know, it doesn't just come down to the fact that I want to win, but it comes down to the fact that I was better than everyone else, hands down. I just tried a little harder, and rocked a little harder. Maybe if the others had given their performances more oomf than maybe I'd be saying that they should win, but they didn't. And so I deserve the statuette most. And I'm gonna win.

Performance by an actor in a supporting role
Alan Alda in “The Aviator”
Thomas Haden Church in “Sideways”
Jamie Foxx in “Collateral”
Morgan Freeman in “Million Dollar Baby”
Clive Owen in “Closer”

Now, y'all might think I'm being biased again, but I gotta say, if that's what y'all are thinking than y'all are wrong wrong wrong. Alan Alda is the best actor in the world. He deserves this award like no other, and he'll win, hands down.

Performance by an actress in a leading role
Annette Bening in “Being Julia”
Catalina Sandino Moreno in “Maria Full of Grace”
Imelda Staunton in “Vera Drake”
Hilary Swank in “Million Dollar Baby”
Kate Winslet in “Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind”

You may say "Leo, but what about your Titanic co-star Kate Winslet?", but you know what? Imelda Staunton gave such power to her performance (like I did in The Aviator) that I think she really should go home with the Oscar. Plus she's hot.

Performance by an actress in a supporting role
Cate Blanchett in “The Aviator”
Laura Linney in “Kinsey”
Virginia Madsen in “Sideways”
Sophie Okonedo in “Hotel Rwanda”
Natalie Portman in “Closer”

Okay, Cate Blanchett should totally win, because she's like, the best actress we've got in Hollywood at the moment, but you know, it's probably going to go to Virginia Madsen, because you know, she's a b-lister, and this is the one chance she's got at grabbing the golden guy (although she should've won for "Candyman"), so it'll go to her. Cate will have her day, though.

Best animated feature film of the year
“The Incredibles” Brad Birb
“Shark Tale” Bill Damaschke
“Shrek 2” Andrew Adamson

Hell-oies!!! "Shrek 2" was the funniest movie of the year. Having "Shark Tale" and "The Incredibles" in the same category is just an insult!

Achievement in art direction
“The Aviator”
Art Direction: Dante Ferretti
Set Decoration: Francesca Lo Schiavo

“Finding Neverland”
Art Direction: Gemma Jackson
Set Decoration: Trisha Edwards
“Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events”
Art Direction: Rick Heinrichs
Set Decoration: Cheryl Carasik
“The Phantom of the Opera”
Art Direction: Anthony Pratt
Set Decoration: Celia Bobak
“A Very Long Engagement”
Art Direction: Aline Bonetto

I gotta say, Dante and Francesca really out-did theirselves this time. If anything else wins it'll be a horrible crime against humanity.

Achievement in cinematography
“The Aviator”
Robert Richardson

“House of Flying Daggers”
Zhao Xiaoding
“The Passion of the Christ”
Caleb Deschanel
“The Phantom of the Opera”
John Mathieson
“A Very Long Engagement”
Bruno Delbonnel

CHA!! YOU KNOW WHAT?? UH-UH!! Totally Robert Richardson should win. Caleb Deschanel can kiss my shitty white ass! You know what I think of your torturific blood fest? I think it sucks bad!

Achievement in costume design
“The Aviator”
Sandy Powell
“Finding Neverland”
Alexandra Byrne
“Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events”
Colleen Atwood

“Ray”
Sharen Davis

I'd love to have said Sandy for this one, but I saw LSASoUE, and I was bllloooooowwwwnnn awwwwaaaaaaayyyyyy.......way...waayyy....waayyyyy....WHOOSH!!!! Ahahha. That's me being blown away. ;B

Achievement in directing
“The Aviator” Martin Scorsese
“Million Dollar Baby” Clint Eastwood
“Ray” Taylor Hackford
“Sideways” Alexander Payne
“Vera Drake” Mike Leigh

You know what? I'm fucking sick of people even fucking debating this. Martin Scorsese's waited long e-fucking-nough. I mean, he's made millions of America's best movies and hasn't gotten one fucking Oscar for them! The Academy is so fucked in the brain if they don't give him this it's unbelievable. Scorsese's movies are the reason I'm so proud to be American!

Achievement in film editing

Thelma Schoonmaker
“Collateral”
Jim Miller and Paul Rubell
“Finding Neverland”
Matt Chesse
“Million Dollar Baby”
Joel Cox
“Ray”

Now. I love Thelma, I really heart her, but you know, she cut that one scene I wanted to keep.. Plus, the editing in "Ray" was pretty alright.

Best foreign language film of the year
“As It Is in Heaven”
A GF Studios Production
Sweden
“The Chorus (Les Choristes)”
A Galatée Films/Pathé Renn/France 2 Cinema/Novo Arturo Films/Vega Film AG Production
France
“Downfall”
A Constantin Film Production
Germany

“The Sea Inside”
A Sogecine and Himenóptero Production
Spain
“Yesterday”
A Videovision Entertainment Production
South Africa

I've said it before, and I'll say it again just for good measure, you can't beat the Germans. And you really shouldn't even attempt it. Plus, all these other movies were just a little too mundane and even a bit depressing for me. I thought "Downfall" really stood out.

Achievement in makeup
“Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events”
Valli O’Reilly and Bill Corso

“The Passion of the Christ”
Keith Vanderlaan and Christien Tinsley
“The Sea Inside”
Jo Allen and Manuel García

I've said it before and I'll say it again, you can't beat the Germans. Just kidding! I was blown away. Jim Carey really scared me to death. And I'm, like, 30 or something.

Achievement in music written for motion pictures (Original score)

“Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban” John Williams
“Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events” Thomas Newman

SNUB THE AVIATOR WILL YOU??? WELL FUCK YOU!!! I think John William's has been ignored too long, don't you?

Achievement in music written for motion pictures (Original song)
“Accidentally In Love” from “Shrek 2”

Music by Andrew Lloyd Webber
Lyric by Charles Hart
“Look To Your Path (Vois Sur Ton Chemin)” from “The Chorus (Les Choristes)”
Music by Bruno Coulais
Lyric by Christophe Barratier

Okay, here's how it goes; snub my movie once, shame on you, snub it twice, burn to death in eternal damnation. I think Loudon Wainwright III's song should've won. But I'll go with "Accidentally in Love" out of default.

Nacho Vigalondo

“Two Cars, One Night”
A Defender Films Limited Production

“Wasp”

I really like Nacho Vigalondo's name. Nacho sounds like Tacho. And you know about Tachos? Leo's favourite food.

Achievement in sound editing
“The Incredibles” Michael Silvers and Randy Thom
“The Polar Express” Randy Thom and Dennis Leonard
“Spider-Man 2” Paul N.J. Ottosson

Spider-man 2. You know, even though it would've meant me winning over him, I'm still pissed at the Academy for snubbing Tobey again.

Achievement in sound mixing

As much as I'd liked to have said Spider-man 2, I have to say HPatPoA, and you know why? BECAUSE IT ROCKED LIKE ASS!!!!

Adapted screenplay
“Before Sunset”
Screenplay by Richard Linklater & Julie Delpy & Ethan Hawke
Story by Richard Linklater & Kim Krizan

“Finding Neverland”
Screenplay by David Magee
“Million Dollar Baby”
Screenplay by Paul Haggis
“The Motorcycle Diaries”
Screenplay by José Rivera
“Sideways”
Screenplay by Alexander Payne & Jim Taylor

One question, I kep hearing about this "Closer" movie, and how awesome it is, but if it's so fucking awesome, how come it wasn't nominated for barely anything?? Okay, I think "Before Sunset" was awesome. Thumbs up.

Original screenplay
“The Aviator”
Written by John Logan

“Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind”
Screenplay by Charlie Kaufman
Story by Charlie Kaufman & Michel Gondry & Pierre Bismuth
“Hotel Rwanda”
Written by Keir Pearson & Terry George
“The Incredibles”
Written by Brad Bird
“Vera Drake”
Written by Mike Leigh

If it comes down to these five choices, it has to be "The Aviator". If "The Aviator" hadn't been nomintaed then I would've chose "Vera Drake", but you know, it was, so fuck everyone else. :P

Again, it was a little too easy this year. But you know what? I'm glad that "The Aviator" will win all those awards. It totally deserves it. And you know what? Watch out for Leo winning best actor. 'Cause it's gonna happen. And you know what? If it doesn't I'll just have to boycott the winners movies! HAWHAW!!!

Yeah, you could say I'm a sore loser, but you could also say that I know what I want, and how to get it. And if I don't, someone else gets it. If you catch my drifties. ;P

♥-Leo
