Obscenely Early Oscar Predictions

Given that the number of potential best picture nominees has gone up from five to ten. Almost every conceivable film that could get nominated will get nominated. So without due consideration here's what I expect the main categories to look like. PS. If Avatar is any way good, it has a shot at the tenth spot.

Up in The Air
A Serious Man
The Lovely Bones
The Hurt Locker
An Education

Jeff Bridges, Crazy Heart

Best Actress:

Meryl Streep, Julie and Julia
Helen Mirren, The Last Station

Not all what I hope mind, but what I think.

Good predictions. Though I'm not sold on The Lovely Bones yet.

I think it might be this year's Benjamin Button, which isn't necessarily a good thing, but it seems very oscar friendly to me.
