RTV6 Director of Audience Development Paul Montgomery, a huge movie buff, shares his Oscars picks:
BEST PICTURE: "Argo"
BEST ACTOR: Daniel Day Lewis, "Lincoln" – The only sure lock
BEST ACTRESS: Jennifer Lawrence, "Silver Linings Playbook" – She acts in this AND is in two big franchise movies: "Hunger Games" and "X-Men." She can do anything!
BEST SUPPORTING ACTOR: Robert DeNiro, "Silver Linings Playbook" -- He’s been so touched by this role and emotional in interviews. This one will mean so much to him and everyone.
BEST SUPPORTING ACTRESS: Anne Hathaway, "Les Miserables" – Another lock; plus she survived co-hosting the Oscars a couple years ago!
BEST DIRECTOR: Ang Lee, "Life of Pi" – This should be Ben Affleck ("Argo"), but the Academy will recognize Lee’s amazing feat here
BEST ORIGINAL SCREENPLAY: "Zero Dark Thirty"
BEST ADAPTED SCREENPLAY: "Silver Linings Playbook"
BEST ANIMATED FEATURE: "Brave" – It’s not Pixar’s best, but "Wreck-It Ralph" could pull an upset.
BEST FOREIGN FEATURE: "Amour" – This is where it belongs and deserves to win.
BEST VISUAL EFFECTS: "Life of Pi" – That amazing look, in 3D, too!
BEST CINEMATOGRAPHY: "Skyfall" – Roger Deakins
I have included my picture with Katie Couric…reminding everyone that her Oscar Special airs Wednesday at 10 p.m. on ABC and RTV6!
