Oscar Predictions: Best Supporting Actor and Actress

Monique and Christoph WaltzIf there's one category at this year's Oscar ceremony that's pretty much a sure bet, it's the best supporting actor and actress awards. Not that there isn't some stiff competition to be found, but two people have stood out from the rest, taking home one award after another – so much so that if neither of them win the Oscar, it would probably be one of the biggest shockers of the night. Here's what we're looking at:

My Prediction:
Best Supporting Actor: What was originally Stanley Tucci's award to lose has quickly turned into a blowout for Christoph Waltz, a newbie actor who surprised everyone with his sensational performance as the brilliant-yet-grimy Nazi hunter in Quentin Tarantino's Inglourious Basterds. As such, Waltz is my pick to win.
Best Supporting Actress: When I first watched Mo'Nique in Precious back at the 2009 Sundance Film Festival, I knew right away that she'd be in the running for the Oscar. Her performance as an overweight, unhealthy abusive mother is over the top, yes, but, like a traffic accident on the side of the road, it's the kind of nasty situation you can't help but want to keep watching. My pick is for Mo'Nique to win it.
Now it's your turn – who do you think will win the best supporting actor and actress awards?
