Because, except for Best Picture, it all seems so predictably boring, I figure I'll go with some left-field picks just to make it more interesting.

Best Picture: The Departed, because it's the most entertaining. But I'll hold out for a possible win by The Queen.
Best Director: Martin Scorsese. It's time already.
Best Actor: Forest Whitaker, although I'm rooting for Ryan Gosling
Best Actress: If Helen Mirren doesn't win it'll be a legendary upset. But who can she lose to? No one.
Best Supporting Actor: Mark Wahlberg, because I think he's competing against Arkin, not Arkin against Murphy
Best Supporting Actress: Jennifer Hudson. Same as Mirren, no big competition
Best Original Screenplay: The Queen
Best Adapted Screenplay: The Departed
Best Animated Film: Cars, rooting for Monster House
Best Makeup: Pan's Labyrinth
Best Foreign Film: Pan's Labyrinth
Best Art Direction: Pan's Labyrinth
Best Cinematography: Children of Men
Best Costumes: The Queen
Best Visual Effects: Pirates of the Caribbean
Best Editing: Babel
Best Score: The Good German
Best Song: Listen, from Dreamgirls
Best Sound Mixing: Dreamgirls
Best Sound Editing: Apocalypto
Best Documentary Feature: An Inconvenient Truth

I'm running late. My pics don't differ much from Jackrabbit's, I've bolded where I vary from his:

Best Picture: Babel
Best Director: Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu (hey, he won the DGA award)
Best Actor: Forest Whitaker
Best Actress: Helen Mirren
Best Supporting Actor: Alan Arkin (I'm inspired by his win last night at the Independent Spirit Awards)
Best Supporting Actress: Jennifer Hudson
Best Original Screenplay: Little Miss Sunshine
Best Adapted Screenplay: The Departed
Best Animated Film: Cars
Best Makeup: Pan's Labyrinth
Best Foreign Film: The Lives of Others
Best Art Direction: Pan's Labyrinth
Best Cinematography: Children of Men
Best Costumes: Dreamgirls
Best Visual Effects: Pirates of the Caribbean (I don't want to give Pirates anything, but the competition is weak)
Best Editing: Babel
Best Score: Babel (just thinking Babel will get a mini-sweep)
Best Song: I Need to Wake Up, from An Inconvenient Truth
Best Sound Mixing: Flags of Our Fathers (I want it to win something)
Best Sound Editing: Letters From Iwo Jima (can't let Pirates win)
Best Documentary Feature: An Inconvenient Truth

Short films I usually won't pick until they're showing the clips as they read them during the broadcast, but here goes:

Short Film (Animated): The Little Matchgirl
Short Film (Live Action): West Bank Story
