The Pop Cult Prophet #6 - Oscar Predictions Result

My last-minute Academy Awards predictions and opinions; the ones that matter at least:

Best Picture - Inception (Fail)

Actor in a Leading Role - Colin Firth - The King's Speech (Succeed)

Actor in a Supporting Role - Christian Bale - The Fighter (Succeed)
Actress in a Leading Role - Natalie Portman - Black Swan (Succeed)

Actress in a Supporting Role - Hailee Steinfeld - True Grit (Fail)

Animated Feature Film - Toy Story 3 (Succeed)

Art Direction - Inception (Succeed)

Cinematography - Inception (Succeed)

Costume Design - Alice in Wonderland (Succeed)

Directing - Darren Aronofsky - Black Swan (Fail)

Film Editing - The Social Network (Succeed)

Foreign Film - Biutiful (Fail)

Makeup - The Wolfman (Succeed)

Music (Original Score) - Inception (Fail)

Sound Editing - Inception (Succeed)

Sound Mixing - Inception (Succeed)

Visual Effects - Inception (Succeed)

Writing (Adapted Screenplay) - The Social Network (Succeed)

Writing (Original Screenplay) - Inception (Fail)

Result: 13 right, 6 wrong

I still feel Inception should have won Writing (Original Screenplay).  The complexity of that screenplay alone is more than enough to warrant an Oscar and I'm sure Roger Ebert would agree.  Otherwise, I'd say I did pretty well, much better than last year.

See ya Space Cowboys...
