Oscar predictions 2010

By PETER KEOUGH  |  January 29, 2010

But . . . surely there must be something left over for Nine? For a pseudo-arty adaptation of a dull, overwrought, Broadway musical version of Federico Fellini's 8-1/2? How can we not acknowledge a film with perhaps the most star-laden cast of the year? A film by no less than Rob Marshall, whose equally tedious Chicago won the big one back in 2002? But when you're given carte blanche with 10 Best Picture nominations to pick the movies you actually like, it's hard to relent and choose a stinker because you feel you have to. Very well, let's give a meaningless Best Supporting Actress nomination to Nine's Penélope Cruz. Maybe it will make up for the one she really deserved in Pedro Almodóvar's Broken Embraces.
