78th Annual Academy Awards ... My Predictions

Tuesday, January 31, 2006
Nominations for the 78th annual Oscar nominations have been announced. I thought this year I'd go out on a limb and make some predictions ...

Best Picture: Brokeback Mountain
Actor: Philip Seymour Hoffman, Capote.
Actress: Keira Knightley, Pride & Prejudice.
Supporting Actor: George Clooney, Syriana( or Jake Gyllenhaal, Brokeback Mountain).
Supporting Actress: Rachel Weisz, The Constant Gardener.
Director: Ang Lee, Brokeback Mountain.
Adapted Screenplay: Larry McMurtry and Diana Ossana, Brokeback Mountain.
Original Screenplay: George Clooney and Grant Heslov, Good Night, and Good Luck.
Animated Feature Film: Howl's Moving Castle.
Art Direction: King Kong.
Cinematography: Brokeback Mountain.
Sound Mixing: King Kong.
Sound Editing: King Kong.
Original Score: Brokeback Mountain, Gustavo Santaolalla (I guess ... I really didn't think it was a brilliant year for film scores.)
Original Song: Travelin' Thru from Transamerica, Dolly Parton.
Costume: Memoirs of a Geisha.
Documentary Feature: March of the Penguins.
Makeup: The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe.

I've left out a few categories where I've seen none or only one of the nominated films ... let's see how I go on the night!

Keira Knightly hasn't got as hope in hell of winning Best Actress.

I don't rhink Knightley winning is an unheard of possibility, but I do think it's severely unlikely.
