from Oscar, the grouch on the couch


Okay, so, I'm making this post just so I can say - "I told you so..." because the Oscars™ are so predictable I'm going to make my picks based on Hollywoodland politics, biases and traditions which has little to do with the films themselves. In fact, I've only seen three of all of the films nominated (for God's sake, Poseidon got a nomination). For the record, here are my predictions on the outcome of this meaningless exercise in diversion:
