Dear Danny,

First, I want to say that last year, I was really routing for Marion Cotillard for one of the best performances I have ever seen. So, of course I was thrilled when she won.

I just saw Sean Penn accept his SAG award for best actor. And, I think that it was richly deserved. Slumdog Millionaire picked up the best film award. That, along with their Golden Globe tells me that they'll take home the Oscar, too.

I have to agree with all of your top 6 picks except for Best Supporting Actress, where I don't have a clue.

Don't feel badly. The Oscars are notoriously, maddeningly, unpredictable. LOL.

Okay Danny, you should be Exec Producer of the Oscars. Those pairings would be television GOLD!

Heck, I would not only tune in to watch the Oscars were Sarandon and the freakish Coulter to present, but I'd PAY MONEY to see that!

I like your predictions. I really loved Slumdog Millionaire, but I'm sure it's because of the whole "Orphan in a horrible environment" theme struck a huge nerve with me.

I think Hollywood should just let you choose the winners. You always make the right choices.

Go see The Visitor, stat. That's actually one of the few Oscar movies I *did* see, and I must say it was an excellent flick.

I really liked The Visitor as well and was happy to see Mr. Jenkins nominated because he is great in the movie. I doubt he will win but nonetheless glad to see him nominated. So, what is the answer to the trivia question?

LOL here, too; great comments. To answer your question on husband/wife nominees in the same year for Actor and Actress: Yes - Elizabeth Taylor for 1966's "Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf" (she won) and Richard Burton, also for "Virginia Woolf" (he should have, but didn't).
