The gist of it, however, is that Argo will win best picture, Ben Affleck should win best director but he's ineligible, Daniel Day Lewis is a virtual lock for Best Actor, while Anne Hathaway is a near certainty for Best Supporting Actress (prepare yourself for a very unctuous speech). Best Actress and Best Supporting Actor are a little more wide open, with Jennifer Lawrence clinging to a lead in the Actress category, while Christopher Waltz and Tommy Lee Jones are even in the race for Supporting Actor. I kind of hope Arkin pulls it out in an upset.
