Juanita Paladino is a professional psychic advisor reached out to by Yahoo! Movies. They wanted her predictions for the 2013 Academy Awards. The New Jersey resident has been predicting the Academy Awards winners by tapping into her psychic intuition.
She doesn’t foresee Daniel Day-Lewis being a lock-in for his ‘Lincoln’ role. She believes the movie ‘Argo’ will beat Lincoln because Argo director Ben Affleck has always been an underdog. Still, now that he has superstar George Clooney producing his movie, she feels that luck will be on Affleck’s side. Below are the psychic’s 2013 Academy Awards predictions:
Best Picture: Paladino states, “Ben Affleck has all the buzz now.” Because of this, she predicts that Argo will win this title. “The buzz was created by his not getting the best-director Oscar nomination. Argo wasn’t my favorite movie. To me, ‘Silver Linings Playbook’ should sweep the Oscars, but it’s not going to,” she says.
Best Director: Paladino states, “Lee’s work is superior, superb, and deserves to be recognized. His personality is a plus, too, absolutely. He’s happy for anyone that wins, and that’s when abundance comes to you.” For this reason, she predicts Ang Lee will win the title of best director this year.
Best Actor: Paladino predicts that Hugh Jackman will win the award for best actor for his ‘Les Miserables’ role. “I had a psychic hit when they put that camera on Jackman’s face, and he sang ‘Look Down.’ That’s the one I’m most positive about, but I’m not God,” she says.
Paladino’s Track Record Speaks For Itself
Best Actress: For her role in ‘Silver Linings Playbook,’ Paladino predicts that Jennifer Lawrence will win the award for best actress. Paladino says, “She did the best job of all the actresses nominated because her character was so complex, and she pulled it off.”
Best Supporting Actor: “De Niro deserves an Oscar. His character is so true to life. You could see the man felt the pain for his son, and he got that pain out to the audience. Despite being a degenerate gambler, he brought his son into that world so he could take care of both,” Paladino said. For this reason, she predicts that Robert De Niro will take home the award for best-supporting actor this year.
Best Supporting Actress: Paladino predicts that Anne Hathaway will win the title of best-supporting actress for her role in ‘Les Miserables.’ “Anne did a great death scene. She had a difficult role, and I know she’s gotten some criticism. However, I think she did the best any actress could do in that role. As for her off-camera personality, I think she’s a better actress than a true-life person. The real Anne Hathaway comes out in her real-life acting,” she said.
Paladino concluded the interview by offering an alternative to her prediction. “If I’m wrong, and Daniel Day-Lewis gets best actor, then all bets are off. ‘Lincoln’ will sweep, carrying best director and best-supporting actress too.”
The results are in! Juanita got 4 out of 6 predictions right. Congratulations Juanita!
