Oscar Pick Results

Here are my picks with the bad picks in red (and the winner in parentheses). The show was OK to good. I would like to see more film clips, however. The clips of what makes a good movie are not what I had in mind.

Best Picture--The Artist
Best Leading Man--Jean Dujardine
Best Leading Lady--Viola Davis (Wrong, surprisingly it was Meryl Streep)
Best Supporting Actor--Christopher Plummer
Best Supporting Actress--Octavia Spencer
Best Foreign Film--The Separation
Best Director--Michael Hazanavicius
Best Screenplay, Original--Midnight in Paris
Best Screenplay, Adapted--The Descendants

Animated Feature--Rango
Documentary Feature--Paradise Lost 3 (Wrong, it was my second choice Undefeated)
Sound Mixing--Hugo
Sound Editing--War Horse (Wrong, it was Hugo as well)
Original Song--Man or Muppet
Art Direction--Hugo
Film Editing--The Artist (Wrong, it was The Girl with the Dragon Tatoo, my favorite 2011 movie)
Musical Score--The Artist

Documentary Short--The Tsunami and the Cherry Blossom (Wrong, it was my second choice, Saving Face)
Animated Short--The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore
Live Short--The Shore
Costume Design--Hugo (Wrong, it was The Artist)

Visual Effects--Rise of Planet of Apes (Wrong, it was Hugo)
Makeup--Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 (Wrong, it was The Iron Lady)

I told you those last two were hard.

So all told, 16 out of 24, 8 out of 9 in the big ones.
