33 Days to the Oscars

In a small frenzy of cyber house-cleaning, I finally finished my post, Top Ten Movies of 2007, so if you think my tastes might be similar to yours, feel free to check it out. The post also includes Chad’s Top Ten which is pretty different than mine.

And because I was suddenly getting a number of hits looking for this year’s printable oscar ballot, I posted a link to that in my sidebar under Jeannie’s Stamp of Approval. Or you can go here. It’s from a page at oscar.com telling how to host a really fabulous oscar party; I just make 3-4 of my favorite appetizers and cuddle up with the husband.

My sister was surprised that I would go to the effort to find and post such a link, but I was feeling guilty about all the folks who were searching and ending up at my last year’s printable ballot. Sheesh, who knew?

I’d bet:

Leading Man: Daniel Day-Lewis in There Will Be Blood

Supporting Man: Phillip Seymour Hoffman in Charlie Wilson’s War

Leading Woman: probably Julie Christie in Away From Her, but Marion Cotillard in La Vie en Rose and Ellen Page in Juno were just as good.

Supporting Woman: Saoirse Ronan in Atonement is most deserving, but it will probably go to Cate Blanchett in I’m Not There or Tilda Swinton in Michael Clayton.

Best Animated Feature: obviously Ratatouille.

Best Picture: There Will Be Blood – although all nominees were excellent this year.

The 80th Academy Awards will be on ABC at 5 pm PT on February 24, 2008 and will be hosted by Jon Stewart.

Oh dear, that date conflicts with my next Money Talk meeting…
