Holy crap, it’s Oscar time again. It’s no earlier than last year, but it certainly feels that way.
Before the picks, my usual disclaimer:
I don’t care who should win, I only care who will win.
I also find that I have better picks when I don’t see the nominated movies. My personal opinion can cloud my judgement when choosing winners. Case in point, having seen Les Miserables this year, I don’t think it deserves a damn thing. It’s taking a great deal of willpower to get past that. Fortunately I also think Argo is the best movie of the year (of the ones I’ve seen) so I have no issues there.
And yes, I take these things seriously. I don’t watch sports, I watch movies. The Academy Awards are my Super Bowl.
Let’s get to the picks.
