Alright, let's get back to this grind of ours, shall we? The Academy branch sure likes it when there things are pretty to the point of making one gag. Is it ever to a purpose. I'd like to think that "Jane Eyre" being here is a show of good faith. If there's anything that isn't up for debate about that one, it's the wear of the characters. Unfortunately, I doubt that will happen. It could, and that's a very lively possibility. But then again, so is that "W.E." walks away with it, which I think we all believe is a worst case scenario. It would be a new low for them to award more towards "W.E." than they awarded towards... any film that got snubbed wrongfully this year.
Thankfully, I don't think that will happen. There are plenty others to steal the focus, even if they really shouldn't. "The Artist" and "Hugo" seem to be the two main contenders, as both are the main contenders for Best Picture, as of this moment anyway. If "Hugo" wins, everyone will inevitably start bandying about a "Hugo" night. If "The Artist" wins, things settle back into the way they were before. And if "Anonymous" wins... Oh, let's please be serious. There's no way in hell that is ever going to happen. It'd be cool, because those outfits are very flamboyant and obvious, but still very fun. At least they have a sense of humor.
WILL WIN: "The Artist"
SHOULD WIN: "Jane Eyre"
SHOULD REALLY WIN: "Drive"
PERSONAL RANKINGS: 1. "Jane Eyre"
