Academy Awards Predicitons - Best Picture

Black Swan
I really liked the look of this movie. Great lighting, gorgeous dancers, handsome choreographer, beautiful dancing, fabulous dance studios. To an extent I would love to live in this movie. In another lifetime, I would love to be a ballet dancer.
Now for the down sides of this movie – yucky skin peeling scenes, crazy mother, a bedroom filled with stuffed animals. Any movie that has stuffed animals in a fully-grown woman’s room cannot win an Oscar.

The Fighter
Hot, sizzling Mark Wahlberg. He is fine enough to single-handedly inspire an Oscar win. However, the hideous homes, crack-house, stinky gym, creepy sisters and bad wardrobes all around. Sorry, no Oscar.

Great looking men in this movie (with the exception of the creeeeepy Cillian Murphy), however their haircuts were dreadful. No award.

The Kids Are All Right
I liked this movie, but I was very disappointed in the look of Julianne Moore and Annette Bening – too realistic. They did, however, have a gorgeous house and an immaculate bathroom. Mark Ruffalo is what tips the scale though. He is NOT an attractive man and destroys any chance of this movie being the winner.

127 Hours
I am a fan of James Franco. The movie was a true inspiration. I liked the scenery in the canyon. But, deserts are hot and dusty. I see nothing beautiful in cutting off your own arm, and I did not enjoy the urine-drinking scenes. Sorry, no Oscar.

Toy Story 3
The three-eyed aliens are cute. I have no desire to live in an animated world. No award.

True Grit
A western. I won’t see it. No prize.

The Social Network
I did enjoy the lighting in this movie. I would want to live in this movie as long as I could avoid all of the technology geeks. This, however, seems unavoidable so I have to say no trophy.

Winter’s Bone
This movie is surrounded with an aura of misery. It does not look remotely nice to look at and I know I would not want to live in it. I won’t see it any time soon. No thank you and no award.

The King’s Speech
I always love a gorgeous period piece. This movie was beautiful to look at in many senses. And, of course, the dashing Colin Firth. I would love to live in this movie and give some speech therapy to Colin using highly unconventional methods. This is my 2011 Academy Award prediction for Best Picture.
