Oscar predictions 2013

I am really excited about this years Oscars. It is hard to guess who will be the winners, but that makes it even more interesting.

Here are my predictions:

Best Motion Picture: Argo
Why: I think everybody liked this movie, and I think it will be one of the movies people will want to see  ten, twenty years from today and they will still find it nice.
Second choice: Amour
Why: Warm and well told story, artistic and romantic approach. The only problem is that since The artist won last year, it will probably not happen another European movie win.

Best actor: Daniel Day-Lewis for Lincoln
Why: Because he won all other awards, and everybody are talking about him. It will be a surprise if he doesn't win his third Oscar.

Best actress: Emanuelle Riva
Why: This lady had a role of her life at the age of 80+. That doesn't happen too often, especially for female actresses. After they turn 50 years, they don't get too many opportunities to play leading role.

Best supporting actor: Robert de Niro
Why: I don't know why, but I found his acting amazing in Silver Linings Playbook. A father who has difficulties to approach his ill son, and has his own issues to deal with, and chooses sport as a bond between them etc. I think his performance deserves an Oscar.

Best supporting actress: Helen Hunt
Why: Anne Hathaway won all other awards, and is the biggest favourite to win her first Oscar, but Helen Hunt showed all her talent in a movie based on a true story, which makes you think about other people and their needs.

Best directing: I am not sure: Michael Haneke, Ang Lee or Steven Spielberg
Why: My personal choice would be Michael Haneke, and then Ang Lee, but Spielberg made a real 'American' movie and maybe Academy will appreciate that.

Best foreign movie: Amour
Why: This is one of the best movies of 2012, and one of the best European movies ever. I watched Norwegian Kon-Tiki and red sone good critics about it, but my opinion is that that movie is not good,  because it doesn't have story, character development, it is all about effects and picture quality. Hope they won't win.

We will see :)
