I really wasn’t going to do an Oscar Predictions piece this year, because frankly, just not into it. I’m missing the big show tonight because I’ll be watching Demi Lovato do Let It Go live at VA Patriot Center. Overall, I think this is a pretty solid year for Oscar Nominations – no clear choices in any category.
Jennifer Lawrence,who an Oscar® for last year’s The Silver Linings Playbook,will be on hand to present at the awards ceremony when the 86th Annual Academy Awards® are given out on Sunday May 2nd on ABC. For more, check out the press release after the jump.
The Wizard of Oz, a best picture nominee in 1939, will be celebrated at this year’s Oscars®. With the event already honoring heroes – real and fictional – the 86th Academy Awards® looks to be filled with myth and magic.
The 86th Academy Awards will be broadcast live from the Dolby Theatre® on Sunday, March 2nd, by ABC. The press release follows the jump.

Overall, I would say I’m pleased by this year’s winners – except Jennifer Lawrence. Show was horrible. Some pleasant surprises. Life of Pi was a strong movie (until the ending ruins it), so can’t say I’m really upset by Lee winning – just shocked. Liked seeing Django Unchained get some love. I think most of my selections were mostly right. Wish B.P. was a surprise, but two months ago it was clear it was going to be Argo and I’m ok with that. Just surprised at how fast and hard Zero Dark Thirty fell. I would swear I was one of the few critics who didn’t like that movie.
Tomorrow night, the Academy Awards® will be handed out for the 85th time. Despite doomsayers, 2012 was a very good year for film – from blockbusters to the tiniest indies. I don’t like predicting Oscar® recipients and I’m not that good at figuring out what the Academy will honor (despite being in demographic of the majority of members, I find them far less open-minded).
There are a number of categories where everything is wide open and a few that are down to a couple of major contenders. There are also a couple of categories where it would seem that one entry has a lock. But this is the Oscars®. And for every seemingly inevitable winner, there is a dark horse who came out of nowhere to upset a seemingly inevitable winner. So, if I picked the winners, these would be my choices. Beware intermittent commentary.
