2011 Oscar Prediction Updates

Back in March, I posted my Ridiculously Early Predictions for the 2011 Oscars, and that post has actually become my most viewed page by a fair margin. Now that a few of the films have been released, and we’ve seen trailers for others, I have some updates to the predictions (for example, The American looks much different than I had imagined). I decided to post them here, and to add them to the original post so that more people can find them.

UPDATE: Be sure to check out my latest predictions over at my 2011 Oscar Predictions page. It will be updated frequenty with photos, commentary, and my up-to-date predictions.

Names and titles marked with an asterisk are new to my predicted line-ups as of July.

    • Of course I’m just speculating, and I haven’t actually seen Inception yet, but I personally can’t see it getting acting nominations. Leo and Levitt are both on my long-shot lists, but it seems really difficult to get an acting nomination for an action blockbuster.
