Happy Academy Awards day, movie fans!
With the 2013 Oscars airing tonight on ABC – and viewers anxious to either praise or tear apart host Seth MacFarlane – THG is here with our annual bold predictions for the ceremony.
Who WILL win? Who SHOULD win? Read our take below and sound off with your own…
Will Win: Argo.
Should Win: Silver Linings Playbook. Many consider it too simple of a movie to win, but the performances are incredible and it’s simply entertainment at its finest.
Will win: Steven Spielberg, Lincoln.
Should win: Ang Lee, Life of Pi. Have you read that book? It’s uncanny this was turned into a coherent, enjoyable film.
Will win: Daniel Day-Lewis, Lincoln.
Should win: Daniel Day-Lewis, Lincoln. The clear favorite for a very good reason.
Will win: Jessica Chastain, Zero Dark Thirty.
Should win: Naomi Watts, The Impossible. A memorable performance in a truly harrowing tale, which is based on a very real, scary story.
BEST SUPPORTING ACTOR
Will win: Robert De Niro, Silver Linings Playbook.
Should win: Christoph Waltz, Django Unchained. Come on. Who doesn’t adore this guy?!?
BEST SUPPORTING ACTRESS
Will win: Anne Hathaway, Les Misérables.
Should win: Helen Hunt, The Sessions. Yes, Hathaway sang on song, really, really well. But give us Hunt’s more featured, layered performance in what we hope will be the evening’s biggest upset.
