madly in advance: 2012 OSCAR PREDICTIONS, round one

Call me crazy, because I probably.  I've begun the 2012 madness before the 2011 hysteria has even ceased.  But alas, I can't stop myself from pondering what's to come while still celebrating what has been.  So if you're interested in my thoughts on next year's Best Picture, Best Director, Best Lead Actress, Best Lead Actor, Best Supporting Actress, and Best Supporting Actor races, click those links!  I'll admit, it seems 2012 is the year of literary adaptations, and I relied heavily on that notion in my highly suspect predictions.  Between Baz Luhrmann's The Great Gatsby (shown), Ang Lee's Life of Pi, and Peter Jackson's The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, it's all about adaptation.  But Alfonso Cuaron and the folks at Pixar might want to district with some original pieces, Gravity and Brave.  Take a look at my delusions in the linked pages or via the mini-menu to the left, and post your own thoughts on 2012 in the comments!

Oh gosh, this is so fun predicting something so far ahead. It’s never too soon to predict the Oscar.

You seem so sure about Gravity, but I think the sci-fi concept won’t hit it although it’s tough acting where the film is just the two of Bullock and Clooney.

I can’t wait to see that battle of classic literature: Anna Karenina and The Great Gatsby. Carey vs Keira. Leo vs Jude Law and Luhrmann vs Joe Wright. Very exciting.

I think Viola Davis should win The best actress award, am i wrong?

Why Leonardo always appear in mind-boggling movies? Lately i watched Shutter Island and i was bored to death and now the Great Gatsby sounds similar to that. Seems like a psychological thriller.
