My Academy Award Predictions

Not having seen all of this year’s Oscar nominees, I don’t know how well my predictions would fare in Vegas. But based on what I have seen, read, and the inevitible “it’s her/his year” academy political buzz,  my predictions for the major nominees are below. The biggest disappointment and shock to me was that neither Leo nor Kate were nominated for Revoultionary Road in the actor/actress categories.

To get you in the mood, NBC’s LA affiliate put together this great video montage of the best Oscar moments. I don’t agree with all of them but it’s worth it just to see Cher’s Hat!
