Best Supporting Actress will be: Marisa Tomei for The Wrestler.
Best Supporting Actor will be: Heath Ledger for Dark Knight. Duh. This isn't even a contest.
Best Actress in a Leading role: Close call between Meryl Streep and Anne Hathaway. I think Hathaway will come away with this one.
Best Actor in a Leading Role: Mickey Rourke has this locked up.
Best Animated Feature: Wall-E. Duh.
Art Direction: who cares? Oh wait, I'm an artist I should care...but this never seems to go the most artful picture, it always seems to be some kind of technical category, like this was the most complex art direction...so let's say it will be...Benji Buttons. After all, with 13 nominations it must win some awards.
Cinematography: Slumdog Millionaire
Costume Design: I have no idea how they figure this one out. The Duchess, sure, why not.
Directing: Hmmm...sometimes, rarely, they give the directing prize to a film that doesn't win the best pictures. This year is such a year, and I'm going out on a limb and saying that Gus Van Sant will be given this award.
