EDITORS NOTE: These predictions were made in April 2011 and reflect what my thinking was at that time. I have updated my predictions since then, but leave these on the blog for a historical record. For the most updated list of predictions, go to the Tracker Pages in the upper right hand corner of this blog.
I finally updated to the new title on the tracker pages on the right.
Also, while there is no one consensus on which actors and actresses will go lead versus supporting, I have found convincing several arguments that placed it as follows:
Lead Actress: Jodi Foster
Lead Actor: John C. Reilly
Supporting Actress: Kate Winslet
Supporting Actor: Christoph Waltz
I’ve placed them accordingly on the Tracker Pages. IMDB still lists this as a 2012 release date, so I’m sticking with the 85th Oscars instead of the 84th for now.
When I started this Oscar predictions blog, I thought that the hardest part would be guessing who will have a great performance. It turns out that the performance part is easy compared to trying to figure out which year a film will be released, and guessing which category to place our thespians!
