Oscar Wishes

My final Oscar predictions are below, but here are a few feasible things I hope will happen when the nominations are announced tomorrow morning:

1. "United 93" is nominated for Best Picture
2. Paul Greengrass, Guillermo del Toro, or Alfonso Cuaron is nominated for Best Director over the more likely Clint Eastwood.
3. Or even better, Bill Condon isn't nominated for Best Director at all.
4. Sacha Baron Cohen makes it into the Best Actor final five.
5. Both of the "Babel" supporting actresses (Rinko Kikuchi & Adriana Barazza) are nominated.
6. "Pan's Labyrinth" and "United 93" are nominated for Best Original Screenplay.
7. "Children of Men" and "Thank You For Smoking" get Adapted Screenplay nods.
8. Or even better, "Borat" also gets an Adapted Screenplay nod.
9. "Pan's Labyrinth" shows up in the Art Direction, Cinematography, and Makeup categories.
10. "O Kazakhstan" receives a Best Song nomination.

I think #4, #5, #7, and #9 will happen.
