Take Em' To the Bank Oscar Predictions

There appears to be a great unanimity regarding who will win the big Oscars tonight, so almost certainly there will be a series of inexplicable surprises. Still, here are the mainstream predictions, as I see it.

Best Picture: No Country for Old Men

Best Actress: Julie Christie

Best Actor: Daniel Day-Lewis

Best Supporting Actress: (Difficult--Ruby Dee won the SAG, is black, has had a long career and her husband died; Cate Blanchett plays a man and is the most convincing of a series of Dylan impressionists; Tilda Swinton actually did the best work, so of course I go with Amy Ryan, just because she's on The Wire, which all the real cognoscenti like a lot).

Best Adapted Screenplay: Coen Brothers

Best Original Screenplay: Diablo Cody

Best Long Documentary: No End in Sight

The rest are wild ass guesses--
