OK, OK, if you insist. Here, for your perusal, are my Oscar picks (the ones I loved):
Lead Actor: Joaquin Phoenix. I saw four of the five nominated performances and man were they all phenomenal, but brotha Joaquin laid it down.
Supporting Actor: Jake Gyllenhaal. I know what you're thinking, but I'm being serious. I know Heath has the buzz, but I felt this performance.
Lead Actress: Keira Knightley. I loves me some Judi Dench, period, and Reese Witherspoon as June Carter Cash will charm the shine right off your shoes, but Keira, Miss Knightley if you're nasty, was phenomenal. She acted her face off (and bewitched me, body and soul).
Supporting Actress: Catherine Keener. I only saw two of these performances so I'm going with Cathy Kee as Harper Lee.
Director: Ang Lee. Seriously, put aside all the hoopla and this is an amazingly well done movie from the way it looked to the way it moved to the way it moved you. A bit if genius, I think.
Original Song: Travelin' Thru by Dolly Parton. Duh.
Motion Picture: Brokeback Mountain. I saw all these, save Crash, and I had real love for all of them. I think this is the best crop for the Academy in a while. I also don't think it should be a close race at all.
