It's Hollywood's biggest night so who'll be the big winners and big losers of tonight's Academy Awards our next guest has been right on with his Oscar predictions on our show for the past two years.
Now he's back joining us from LA's any -- -- lights camera Jackson and he's thirteen years old and he gets them all right nice to see you this morning Jackson.
Thank you rather me -- so first before we get into the best picture nominees in the best actors and actresses and everything how do you get your start doing.
I started doing move your views for a local radio station about six years ago in early 2006.
They wanted me to do some for awhile so they offered will be your views and I went with that.
And then about a year later started up the website -- -- Cameron asked Jackson dot com.
And then I've been doing reviews for local TV station near where I live in upstate New York.
For the past three and a half years unbelievable all right so let's dive -- to the best picture nominees tonight the big question is whether or not.
Of these ten films which one will come home the big winner and your prediction this year for best picture.
The artist -- this is the best film of the year.
It's beautiful it's sweet it's emotional it's funny it's wonderful it's the best film in 2011 I think it should and definitely will win the best picture Oscar I just love the art you've seen all of the best pictures right.
All the best -- -- I actually saw all of the nine nominees.
Before the nominations came out this year which I was personally proud of them in -- thirteen some of them are rated.
-- yeah I mean.
-- my father and I look up.
Which ones are rated.
They only -- actually in this category this year is the descendants which is a great film so I'm glad I was able to see that film but I don't -- that the hang -- of the bridesmaids of the girl with the dragon -- type -- was speaking of the descendants George Clooney you picked as best actor this is a bit of a surprise there and a lot of great -- up for best actor why George Clooney this year.
I mean this is a believable and relatable performance I I think it's -- time to finally win a best actor Oscar miles -- really like Jon did you our Dan in the artist.
But I think it's George Clooney for the descendants which is a great performance.
Your best actors -- -- Viola Davis for the help I mean she's won many in the awards throughout the season I think it's her year.
If it's not Viola Davis Merrill Streep could possibly one for the iron lady she was my pick to.
For who should win in this category think Meryl Streep is great in the iron lady but I think it's Viola Davis for best actress.
Now -- picks for best director I agree with only because I wanna hear the person try to pronounce this individual's last name when they announce this winner.
Yes me shall have to have VC as for the artist I think it's great direction even though Martins they're says he won the Golden Globe in this category I think it's me -- hasn't NBC -- for best director -- -- -- it.
Hasn't -- -- of and best animated feature this was a bit of a surprise I thought this might have gone to somebody else who's your pick for best animated feature.
I think wrangles gonna when I mean this category is very interesting this year with no -- -- nominee -- -- get nominated.
Arthur Christmas didn't get nominated neither did when he the -- I think listen -- this person believes should win.
Added this group -- very interesting here with a couple of indie films and that hardly anyone seen but I think Rangel is almost a lock for best animated feature.
I imagine you probably have gotten to meet some incredible individuals in this career meeting celebrity's.
All sorts of incredible folks who's been the most memorable person you've -- Well I mean my two idols growing up are people I've gotten to meet Regis Philbin was just the nicest person in the world and Roger Ebert -- got to meet in June when I did appearances on Ebert presents at the movies they -- just really very nice.
-- feel confident about your picks Jackson.
I do but it's a tough -- I mean I've been very lucky the past few years but my picks.
There are some tough races this year so I hope I'm right again you put it probably will be we've got the videotape to hold you to account Jackson Murphy we appreciate you joining us this morning enjoyed a big show tonight.
