Everyone's favorite Comedy Central talk show host, Stephen Colbert, has predicted the Oscar winners this year, which, as he says, is "not bad considering I never seen any of the movies, I just look at the posters when I'm outside of the theater protesting." So how does he do it? Well, he uses The DaColbert Code, which is his power to find patterns where none exist. Colbert predicts: Penelope Cruz will win Best Supporting Actress, Kate Winslet will win Best Actress, Heath Ledger will win Best Supporting Actor, Mickey Rourke will win Best Actor, and Slumdog Millionaire will win Best Picture. Those sound about right to you?
Watch Stephen Colbert predict the Oscars:
The Oscars are one thing we haven't brought up much since the nominations were announced, which is why I couldn't be happier to break the ice on that topic with Colbert himself. To be honest, I think he nailed them. I do expect Slumdog to take home the top prize and as for the actors and actresses, Rourke and Ledger are shoo-ins, I'm just not sure about Winslet and Cruz. Although I could certainly see both of them winning as well, especially Winslet, even though I personally don't think she deserves it (for The Reader).
