Watching this year’s Academy Awards will be like starting a book after you’ve already skipped ahead to read the ending. Aside from a possible surprise or two (i.e. Bening over Portman; Steinfeld over Leo), the 83rd annual telecast should follow a predictable night with Colin Firth and The King’s Speech crowned over The Social Network. Expect Speech to take home about five gold guys with Network close behind with four. Perhaps the most unpredictable aspect about this year’s Oscars will be how well James Franco and Anne Hathaway host the event. I suspect the duo will rise to the occasion with a little song, a little dance, and a lot of humor. I also bet we’ll see our fair share of celeb cameos engaging with them in planned bits and vignettes. As a whole, the night should be entertaining, drawn-out predictable fun. Here’s my take on how the night will play out in all categories. One thing is clear this will be the first award show in some time that doesn’t feature Betty White.
