Academy Award’s 81st Best Picture Oscar (PREDICTION)

oscar-line-drawing.jpg

Mmmmm. Smell that? That bitter sweet smell is Oscar. He cannot be stopped, he’s on the way. The film-like air that surrounds us once again is certainly that of our dear friend and enemy to some, Oscar. This year, for all movies released in the year 2008, might prove be a little smellier than in the last few years. I’m not sure whether Oscar will be as dark and brooding as last year’s 80th award winners. Winners such as There Will Be Blood and No Country For Old Men. The one thing I know that seems darker this year is the host, Hugh Jackman. Jackman has never had a gig like this and I can’t see it being good for his career.

Now just about anyone can tell you who the winners have been. Isn’t that what the internet is for? Today is January 19th. On January 22 the Motion Picture Academy will announce the list of nominations. This is my prediction for the list of Best Picture nominees:

Here’s some research information below. Even though the information can be found online, it is difficult to find a list of the Best Picture winners from 1927-2007.
