Two Blondes Countdown to the Oscars: Best Actor

February 23, 2011

The Nominees:

Javier Bardem Biutiful

Jeff Bridges True Grit

Jesse Eisenberg The Social Network

Colin Firth The King’s Speech

James Franco 127 Hours


WHO WE THINK WILL WIN

Jessica:  Colin Firth

Alison:  Colin Firth

WHO WE WANT TO WIN

Jessica:  I don’t know what Alison’s pick will be as I’m writing this, but I would bet on Colin Firth.  We saw The King’s Speech together and Alison seemed to like it a lot more than I did.  Now, before I say this, I need to note that I love Colin Firth.  In my heart, he will always be Mr. Darcy, emerging from swimming in his pond, dripping wet…OK, maybe that’s less, “in my heart,” and more in the dirtier parts of my imagination.  I thought he overacted just a teeny, tiny bit in The King’s Speech.  There, I said it.  I haven’t seen Biutiful.  I’ll say I think James Franco should win.  What he had to pull off in 127 Hours was big, and he succeeded admirably.

Alison:  I haven’t seen 127 Hours or Biutiful yet, which probably makes me unqualified to vote on this subject, but since it’s my blog, I still will.  I would love for Colin Firth to win. I think he was pure excellence in this role.  And if I was to give out a pure awesomeness award along with the Oscar, that would go to Jeff Bridges.  That guy is amazing.  I love, love, love Lebowski and think he’s an amazing actor.
