Oscar afficianardo Ernest P. Kern has made his fearless predictions for the Oscars on Sunday. Here goes.

Best Picture– “The Aviator” 33 of the last 37 movies to lead
in nominations won Best Picture. The 4 that didn’t was either the first
part of a trilogy (Lord of the Rings – The Fellowship of the Ring) or
starred Warren Beatty (Bonnie and Clyde, Reds, Bugsy) The Aviator is
neither part of a trilogy or has Warren Beatty .

Best Actor – Jamie Foxx – “Ray” If there is such a thing as a LOCK this is it.

Best Actress – Hilary Swank – “Million Dollar Baby” I would estimate more
members saw this performance than the other 4 combined.

Best Supporting Actor – I’m going out on a limb here. Clive Owen won a
Golden Globe. Morgan Freeman won the SAG award. I’m predicting Thomas Haden Church for “Sideways” The Academy will want to give “Sideways” more than just an Adapted Screenplay Award.

Best Supporting Actress – Cate Blanchett – “The Aviator” The Academy loves it when a Lead takes a Supporting role (ex. Renee Zellweger last year)

Best Director – Martin Scorsese – “The Aviator” The Academy is tired of hearing “THE WORLD’S GREATEST LIVING DIRECTOR who’s never won an academy award” If he doesn’t win there will be a BIG push to get him a Lifetime Achievement Award. (Like what they did with Hitchcock)
