These Oscar Predictions Are So Good That You Can’t Be Wanting To Not Be Reading Them

PhotobucketIt’s about time for me to go over who I think will be winning the major categories tonight at the Academy Awards. I’ve read a mess of other blogs and looked over their predictions and you basically will read the exact same type of thing here. The only difference is I am picking who will win, who I think should win of those nominated, and who or what was screwed out of a nomination.

Here are my Academy Award notes and predictions. As always, please…no wagering.

    I batted 1.000 on these. Of course, it was the most anti-climactic Academy Award ceremony of all time.

    As much as I absolutely dislike Sean Penn the person…i’m glad in the first part of his speech he acknowledged the fact that “it’s hard to like him”…that’s good. But to turn around & get on his soap box like he ALWAYS does at teh end of the speech…ugh!! tired!! i’m over it!!
