Oscar Winner Predictions: Best Makeup

The competition: Il Divo, Star Trek, The Young Victoria

Previous winners: The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, La Vie en Rose, Pan’s Labyrinth, The Chronicles of Narnia, Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events
My winner: Zombieland
Who should win: Star Trek (though I haven’t seen “Il Divo”)
Who will win: This category threw me for a loop by snubbing “District 9” and “The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus,” two films which presumably would have duked it out for the win. With the three nominees left, I remember some brilliant quote (can’t remember from who) about how one single eyebrow was more impressive than hundreds of Morlocks when “Frida” defeated “The Time Machine” in 2002, so I tend to believe that “Star Trek” won’t win, and I can’t imagine “Il Divo,” a film that even I haven’t heard of, taking it home. Therefore it will probably be the royalty of The Young Victoria, though honestly it could just as easily be a bunch of aliens.
