Julio and The Oscars —

19 02 2011

Oh my July! isn’t just a sports blog … we do Concerts. Festivals. Films. As Usher would say “ohhh, you got it all” >> So maybe there isn’t a better time to invite you to participate in the Daily Journal’s annual “Predict & Win Contest.” It’s our annual attempt at letting our readers guess who will win the Academy’s most prestigious prize. Plus, it allows us in the office to do a little side betting … which is always fun. Wait, I think I”m in charge of that. Anyway, below you will find the ballot — pick up a copy of the Daily Journal between now and next Friday, come on in to 800 S. Claremont St. in San Mateo (Suite #210) and enter you ballot for a chance to win dinner, limo rides and movie tickets. Should I tell you my picks? OK.

First, the non-important ones: I like “Biutiful” in the Foreign Language category, “Inception” for Best Visual Effects, Best Supporting Actress I like Melissa Leo to complete the SAG, GG, OSCAR tri-fecta, Best Supporting Actor I am rooting for Geoffrey Rush, but I have a feeling Christian Bale takes it for his role in “The Fighter,” Best Costume Design “Alice in Wonderland.” And for the big ones:

Best Animated Feature: Toy Story 3 — Kind of a no-brainer if you ask me.

Best Director: David Finch, Social Network (picture belongs to (http://www.blogcdn.com)

Lead Actress: Natalie Portman, Black Swan

Lead Actor: Colin Firth, The King’s Speech

Best Picture: The King’s Speech

Take the challenge by leaving a comment and we’ll compare notes when the Oscar winners are announced. I dare ya! I DOUBLE-DOG dare ya!
