Transcript 22 MONTROSE VOICE/MARCH 21, 1986 Cutsinger's Choices Oscar Contenders Running Close Races By Scott Custinger Montrose Voice Film Critic After several years of easy-to-guess Oscar winners, it's nice to see a year where no one seems to know who might nab the statues. Will this be the year of The Color Purple, Out of Africa, or Prizzi's Honor? Can a gay movie like Kiss of the Spider Woman actually win an Oscar for William Hurt? Hollywood insiders are beside themselves trying to second-guess the voters. The big fuss is over the snub of Steven Spielberg (Color Purple), which may (or may not) put Purple in the lead for Best Picture. Spielberg won the Directors Guild award, but the Academy obviously didn't want to honor him. The top acting awards are very close this year. William Hurt will be nose-to- nose with Jack Nicholson (Prizzi's Honor) for the coveted Best Actor. Geraldine Page (who has been nominated more times than she cares to admit) is the old-timer favorite for Trip to Bountiful, but newcomer Whoopi Goldberg (Color Purple) has received much more publicity and is in a stronger movie. The supporting nominees are also running a tight race with a lot of good performances. William Hickey (Prizzi's Honor) was probably the best, but the competition will narrow down to another old-timer (Don Ameche for Coccoon) and the outstanding Klaus Maria Brandauer in Out of Africa. The Color Purple ladies, Margaret Avery and Ophrah Winfrey, could well cancel each other out for Best Supporting Actress, although Winfrey has a slight edge. However, Angelica Huston (Prizzi's Honor) seems to have a distinct edge over everyone, and will probably win for a stunning performance. As always, many wonderful movies like Mask, Silverado, and Purple Rose of Cairo will end up with booby prizes like Best Makeup, Best Original Score, and Best Screenplay (in that order). Other films like Ron. Runaway Train, Brazil, and Agnes of God will get little or nothing. Even the beautiful Witness, with eight nominations, will probably end upempty-handed. Still, the Academy didn't do too bad this year, and has provided quite a nice competition. While it is the definite "dark horse," it's great to see that members had the courage to nominate Kiss of the Spider Woman for Best Picture—even if it won't win. At least they had the courage not to stick in something popular like Back to the Future just to please executives and the public. The following are some educated William Hurt could win guesses about the Oscars Monday night. They are not my favorites by any means (I'm not a Color Purple fan), but predictions based on industry trends, past performances, and even a little Hollywood gossip. • Best Picture: A tie between Color Purple, Prizzi's Honor, and Out of Africa. Color Purple will win. • Director: John Huston (Prizzi'sHonor) is the clear old-timer favorite here. • Actor: William Hurt (Kiss of the Spider Woman) for his superb gay performance. • Actress: Many say Whoopie, but I'm sticking with Geraldine Page (Trip to Bou- tiful) out of sentimentality for her eight nominations. • Supporting Actor: Don Ameche could win as an old-timer, but Klaus Maria Brandauer (Out of Africa) is the logical choice. • Foreign Language Film: The Official Story • Original Screenplay: Witness and Brazil are wonderful scripts, but Woody Allen's Purple Rose of Cairo has won several awards already and will get the statue. • Screenplay Adaptation: Prizzi's Honor • Cinematography: Ron • Editing: Out of Africa • Art Director: Ron • Costume Design: Out of Africa • Sound: Silverado • Sound Effects Editing: Back to the Future • Original Score: Silverado • Original Song: Separate Lives • Makeup: Mask • Visual Effects: Cocoon • Documentaries and Short Subjects: Have not seen any of them.
