Critics Choice Awards 2012: My Predictions

These are only predictions for the four acting categories, but here goes (“should win” is reserved for performances I saw and enjoyed) (*edited to include the winners):

Best Actor

  • Will Win: George Clooney (The Descendants) (WON) or Brad Pitt (Moneyball) — chance for Michael Fassbender (Shame) too
  • SHOULD Win: George Clooney (The Descendants) — though I wouldn’t really mind seeing Pitt win because his performance was good

Best Actress

  • Will Win: Michelle Williams (My Week with Marilyn) or Meryl Streep (The Iron Lady) —- chance for Tilda Swinton (We Need to Talk About Kevin) too (winner: Viola Davis)
  • SHOULD Win: Elizabeth Olsen (Martha Marcy May Marlene)

Best Supporting Actor

  • Will Win: Albert Brooks (Drive) or Christopher Plummer (Beginners) (WON)
  • SHOULD Win: Nick Nolte (Warrior)

Best Supporting Actress

  • Will Win: could be a few: Shailene Woodley (The Descendants) or Jessica Chastain (The Help) or Octavia Spencer (The Help) (WON) — chance for Berenice Bejo (The Artist) too
  • SHOULD Win: Shailene Woodley (The Descendants)
