Weekends with Alex Witt | February 23, 2013
>>> it is the biggest night in show business tomorrow. the academy awards take center stage . and we have senior editor of "in touch weekly" to tell us who has the best shot at oscar gold. right to it. a lot of solid movies. best picture , what do you have there?
>> i think this is " argo ." everyone by now knows the story. it didn't look like " argo " was going to win. ben affleck snubbed for best director nomination. you usually don't get the win for best picture if there is no best director nomination. things have completely changed since the nomination. they won the golden globe , screen actors gild. directors gild. it's a great movie. critics like it, crowds like it. and hollywood ending , hollywood saves the day and the ben affleck angle too, and that story, a hollywood story as well. i love this.
>> a good story. what about best director . who gets that?
>> this one, nobody really knows. looks right now like maybe steven spielberg or ang lee for " life of pi ." he did such a great job with this amazing, beautiful story.
>> a tough book definitely to turn into a movie. what about best actor ?
>> daniel day -lewis. i don't think there is any question about this.
>> we can just move on to best actress .
>> exactly. this would be his third win as best actor , which doesn't happen it would be an amazing feat for him.
>> best actress ?
>> a tough one. i think jennifer lawrence for "silver linings playbook." such a great film. four actress nominations. but jennifer lawrence has momentum. so versatile. you know her from "the hunger games." such a great job. jessica chastain andemanuel reva for amora . she won the baptist. i really think this is jennifer lawrence 's award to win.
>> supporting actress ?
>> another one like daniel day -lewis. anne hathaway . she's just won every single award. if you saw " les mis " you watched her on screen.
>> you cried when she was singing. i did. how about supporting actor ?
>> this is the one race you probably don't want to bet money on because this is the one that really nobody knows . right now, it looks like the momentum is towards robert de niro for "silver linings playbook." he's so great in this. he has not won an oscar since " raging bull ." it's been over 30 years since he's won't an oscar . tommy lee jones in "lincoln" was great. and kristof walsh has won the golden globe . alan arkin , there's that upswing towards " argo ." but i think it's robert de niro .
>> i checked off my ballot like you told me. thank you very much, kim serrefine.
>>> how will be play in the latest fiscal crisis? coming up next. if your tires need to be rotated, you have to get that done
