Oscar Picks 2009

I have no interest in college basketball pools and the like, but I am abnormally competitive when it comes to guessing Oscar winners.  Here’s my obligatory list for 2009:
Leading Actor:  Mickey Rourke
Supporting Actor:  Heath Ledger
Leading Actress:  Kate Winslet
Supporting Actress:  Penelope Cruz
Animated:  Wall-E
Cinematography:  Benjamin Button
Directing:  Slumdog Millionaire
Documentary:  Man On Wire
Editing:  The Dark Knight
Foreign Language:  Waltz With Bashir
Music (Score):  Benjamin Button
Music (Song):  “Jai Ho”
Best Picture:  Slumdog Millionaire
Adapted Screenplay:  Doubt
Original Screenplay:  Milk

All others categories require a dart toss.  Let’s see your picks.  And regardless of the awards, what’s the best film you saw in 2008?

UPDATE: 9/15…weak showing this year.  How’d you do?
