Oscar Night.

I did it!!  I watched all the movies nominated for an Oscar (with The Town substituted for 127 Hours).  A lot of these movies were great, as you'd expect.  However, there were some MAJOR duds (Winter's Bone & Toy Story 3, I'm talking to you).  Here's how I ranked them:

1. The Social Network
2. The Fighter
3. The King's Speech
4. The Town
5. Inception
6. True Grit
7. Black Swan
8. The Kids are All Right
9. Toy Story 3
10. Winter's Bone

So, here are my predictions for tonight:

Best Picture
Who I want to win:  The Social Network just edged out the Fighter for my vote
Who will win:  The Social Network (although The King's Speech could be a major spoiler)

Best Leading Actor
Who I want to win:  Colin Firth
Who will win:  Colin Firth

Best Leading Actress
Who I want to win:  Jennifer Lawrence
Who will win:  Natalie Portman

Best Supporting Actor
Who I want to win:  Andrew Garfield-- oh, he wasn't nominated?  Then Christian Bale, who was phenomenal
Who will win:  Christian Bale

Best Supporting Actress
Who I want to win:  Helena Bonham Carter
Who will win:  Melissa Leo

And of course, I'll be rooting for the genius Aaron Sorkin for Best Screenplay and David Fincher for Best Director, both for The Social Network.


  1. Good job watching all of them!! I couldn't bring myself to do it. Some of them just didn't interest me at all. :( Also I will see The Social Network at some point. I probably won't watch the Oscars but I'll check online to see how your predictions turned out!! I'm currently watching the Psych marathon I recorded yesterday!!


  2. i'm just proud of myself for seeing atleast 3 out of 10 on the list. :) i really wanted to see the fighter. i'm sure it was amazeballs.

  3. Hi Katie, new follower from Meg's Mingle Monday! I have seen your blog link in so many of my friends' sidebars, I figured it was due time that I visited you and checked out your little space here on the web. Love that you're driven by faith and a Jesus follower. You're a girl after my own heart. :)

    It's nice to meet you...I'm looking forward to reading along and getting to know you better! Have a great week...


  4. Cool, we both had the same top three in the same order!! LOVED The Social Network. :)

  5. Me again, traveling through>>>>>>>>

    I don't think I have missed more than 1 Oscar night in 30 years!
