My final Oscar award nomination for “Best Picture” prediction here…

I did this before in the past, but this is my final prediction of what will get nominated for the Oscars in Feb. of 2009 for “Best Picture”. Usually there are 5 films nominated every year for the “Best Picture” award and this is my pick.

I have only seen a few of these movies, but the ones I haven’t seen yet, I know will get nominated due to the hype…

Here’s my final predictions below:

“The Dark Knight”

“Wall-E”

“Frost/Nixon”

“Changeling”

“Milk”

Everybody knows why “The Dark Knight” will definitely get in. “Wall-E” will definitely get it no matter what happens. “Frost/Nixon” will definitely get in because of Ron Howard. “Changeling” will get it no matter what happens ’cause it rings Clint Eastwood everytime he’s at the Oscars every year with a new film. “Milk” starring Sean Penn will get it because they know that the film about a real life gay politician will create controversy in the media if it got nominated.

Out of this list, I only saw “The Dark Knight” and “Changeling” but the other three films looks really great. Mark my words, these five films will get the nomination. I don’t think films like “The Wrestler”, “Valkyrie” or “Benjamin Button” will get nominated at all.

I would be very surprised if “Valkyrie” got nominated for Best Picture all of a sudden, since it’s a WW II Nazi flick about Hitler, and it would be a shock if “Valkyrie” got the nomination and if it even wins. I would even be surprised if Tom Cruise wins for Best Male In a Leading Role nomination for “Valkyrie” as well. While “Valkyrie” does look really good, I don’t think it’s Oscar worthy.

Eastwood’s other film “Gran Torino” looks amazing as well, but I think “Changeling” will get the nomination instead of “Gran Torino”.

We’ll just wait until the official Oscar nominations come out to the press, to see if I got my predictions right.

  1. My money is on “Milk,” it has everything those Hollywood people like: street fighting Gay men, senseless murder, a killer who cops out on a “Twinkie defense,” and a star who is politically just to the left of Ward Churchill. The clincher this year is that Proposition 8 won, so the velvet mafia will be lobbying Academy members to vote for their agenda to sell gay pride to Middle America. I’m sure Heath will get a *nomination* for best actor out of respect to his family and fans, but there is NO WAY a comic book movie is going to get Oscars for anything other than technical things like editing, foley, or special effects, or maybe music score. Go look up all of the Oscars that Lord of the Rings or the X-Men movies won.

  2. I liked Dark Knight just fine, but I have to disagree with you on no one knowing who Gus Van Sant is, anyone who knows movies knows who he is. It would be like not knowing who Otto Preminger or Luis Buñuel were.

    frost/nixon

  6. its eligible
    but highly unlikely
    there were better movies that came out this year
    i’m not saying that wall-e isn’t a good movie
    but you must be realistic

  7. WOW!!! I’m sorry but Wall-E and Changeling are not likely to get nominated. Wall-E maybe but not Changeling. And where’s slumdog millionaire. Your predictions are a little off. I think what you mean is Wall-E would win best animated feature for sure but maybe not best picture. Sorry but Changeling have you seen it’s low ratings on rotten tomatoes and metacritic and as for Wall-E the academy dosen’t like animated flicks that much why do you think that ratatouille or finding nemo didn’t get nominated they had equal ratings and a similar or better box office count.
