I do love a good Oscar Award afternoon, a good frock a bit of controversy, speeches and glamour. I’ve borrowed the NYT template so you can predict your own Oscars. My friend Sandy Edwards usually has an Oscar Award party where everyone sits around predicting and answering film trivia …. you can win DVDs but I’m not sure thats a win anymore.
In my heart I hope Roma wins just about everything….but Glen Close best actress for The Wife and the best Doco RGB, Sandy Powell …. the Australian designer on The Favorite. Rami Malek should get it for the teeth alone and I need to see Bradley Cooper and Gaga sing Shallow just one more time.
The Show kicks off live..on Channel Nine tomorrow at midday.

This crazy, mixed-up Oscar season comes to a close with Sunday night’s ceremony, which will forgo a host and, after plenty of controversy, still present all 24 categories on the air. But which movie is poised to win the biggest race of them all and take the Oscar for best picture? Alfonso Cuarón’s black-and-white art film “Roma” is a critical favorite that took the top trophy from the Directors Guild of America, but a foreign-language film has never won best picture, let alone one distributed by the insurgent streaming service Netflix.
Many Oscar voters love the racial-issues dramedy “Green Book,” which was given top honors by the oft-predictive Producers Guild of America, but the film couldn’t even nab a best-director nomination.
So though we’ve got two ostensible front-runners, this is still anybody’s game: After all, “A Star Is Born” once looked unbeatable, too, and now it’s limping to the finish line with a scant few trophies under its belt.
