Rourke’s Wrestler, Winslet’s Nazi Guard Favored to Win Oscars

This year’s Oscar telecast will feature a new host (Hugh Jackman), a new format (cozier, shorter) and, almost certainly, a bunch of new winners.

None of the favorites for the five biggest individual awards on Feb. 22 has ever won an Oscar: Mickey Rourke (actor), Kate Winslet (actress), Heath Ledger (supporting actor), Penelope Cruz (supporting actress) and Danny Boyle (director). Winslet has been nominated six times, as many as the other four combined.

One other historical note: If Ledger wins, he’ll become only the second actor to win a posthumous Oscar. The first was Peter Finch, for 1976’s “Network.”

Here are my fearless, though not necessarily accurate, predictions:

Best Picture

Nominees: “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button,” “Frost/Nixon,” “Milk,” “The Reader,” “Slumdog Millionaire.”

Online Streaming Movies Grows Dramatically

We may have less money, but we're no less impatient.

Flying in the face of the struggling economy, movies-by-mail service Netflix announced Jan. 27 that business was booming. And the service gave most of the credit to the appeal of near-instant delivery of films streamed to subscribers' TV sets via Xbox 360 game systems, some Blu-ray Disc players, Net-enabled TV sets and set-top boxes.

Growing availability of video content at home, work and on the go via YouTube, Hulu, Fancast and other video sites is making us a nation of multitasking video consumers, says analyst James McQuivey of Forrester Research. "What is happening, overall, is people are spending more time with the TV and PC screen because of all these easily accessible video sources," McQuivey says. "Netflix is one of the many enablers of this new addiction."
