    not a big fan of american hustler, huh? lol. me either really. i didn't get a chance to see 12 years a slave so I don't really have a movie that I was blown away by this year.

    i think gravity is going to eke out the win for best pic. and I'm really furious about that. its a well constructed story, but I always think oscar wins should have a little something more going for them.

    I think cuaron is going to take best director, but i'm less irritated about that. it is technically astonishing.

    sounds like blanchett and leto are shoo ins to win in their categories. if sandra pulls that one out, i'm going to throw the remote at the TV.

    mccoughney is supposed to win, but i'm wondering if bruce dern is going to pull out a dark horse win on that one.

    i'm with you in that i don't think they're going to give jennifer two wins in a row, and i think a lot of people are going to vote for lupito to soothe their conscience about not voting for 12 years a slave

    I predict that I will again not even bother to watch the oscars, nor care who wins or doesn't win.
