Matt's Oscar Ballot

Oscar Sunday has finally arrived! And I am officially ready to reveal my ballot. I have already offered my picks for Best Actress, Best Actor, Best Supporting Actress and Best Supporting Actor in four posts last week. Steven Spielberg's Lincoln may lead the charge with twelve nominations, but the post-nomination glory may have been short-lived. Life of Pi's Ang Lee could be the one to supplant Spielberg for Best Director. The odds are not in Michael Haneke's favour, as no foreign language film has ever won the top directing prize. As always, Oscar Sunday brings doubts to our predictions. Are Daniel Day-Lewis and Anne Hathaway locked as firmly into place as we all think? Will Emmanuelle Riva be able to defeat Jennifer Lawrence? In a short six hours we shall see!
