Oscar Predictions: Who Will Win? Who Should Win?
Posted 02.10.09 by reelz
When the Oscar nominations were announced in January, they were pretty underwhelming. Seriously, 13 nominations for The Curious Case of Benjamin Button? Even card-carrying David Fincher fans, who'd been looking forward to that movie for years, have said the end result just wasn't that good.
And where's The Dark Knight love? We're happy to see Heath Ledger get the acclaim, but we don't think a Best Picture or Directing nod should have been so far-fetched. For a movie of any kind, let alone a comic flick, Knight was a terrific achievement that raised the bar for what a superhero movie can be. It was financially successful and loved by critics and fans, alike.
So when February 22 rolls around, who do we think will win? And, more important, who do we think should win? Find out in our Oscar predictions.
