The Bets: Who I Think Will Win

Posted on Updated on

Best Actor will definitely go to Daniel Day-Lewis for There Will Be Blood. He’s a brilliant actor and he’s given a great performance. But I think Johnny Depp as Sweeney Todd deserves it. He’s scary and he slashes and he sings. Best Actress is a tough one, with the brilliant Julie Christie as an Alzheimer’s patient in a heartbreaking performance in Away From Her, Marion Cotillard in an outstandingly realistic portrayal of Edith Piaf in La Vie en Rose, Ellen Page may also take it as witty Juno. But if I know the critics, I think it will be Christie. Best Supporting Actor is a no contest for Javier Bardem, who has gained many critics awards for his role as a hit man in No Country for Old Men. Best Supporting Actress is a little trickier, but young Soairse Ronan from Atonement has no chance. Gone Baby Gone‘s Amy Ryan gave a tremendous performance as well as Tilda Swinton in Michael Clayton, Cate Blanchett as a Bob Dylan-esqe character in I’m Not There, and a short but sweet performance by Ruby Dee in American Gangster. Best Director may go to Joel and Ethan Coen for No Countryor Paul Thomas Andreson for Blood and even Julian Schnabel for The Diving Bell and the Butterfly. Best Picture I think may go to No Country, which has been well received by critics. We’ll have to see the winners Sunday night at 8/9 p.m. est LIVE from the Kodak Theater on ABC.
