I'm no Nostradamus when it comes to...well, anything. (Except maybe knowing that nine times out of ten, "I'll call you" means "I won't call you.")
But since more than one person has asked me for Oscars predictions, here are my thoughts on the matter for now.
First of all, I predict that I will not be winning an Oscar for my work in Bridget Jones Ungirdled. Moreover, despite rumors to the contrary, I will not be attending tonight's festivities in Armani Vintage Couture, clutching a Judith Lieber purse in one hand, my other arm linked through the formidable forearm of the recently single Brad Pitt.
And as for the nominees:
Best Supporting Actor: I don't think Thomas Haden Church will win. I think it's Morgan Freeman's turn. Easy Reader is an easy choice for BSA. And I think this is as good a place as any to note that I believe Paul Giamatti was robbed. Two years running, actually. He's an experienced, nuanced, deft comedic and dramatic actor, and deserves much more recognition than he gets. So, the "Esther" goes to PG for his Class-A work, AOK?
