My Oscar Picks

Written by Lotus on Sunday, 26 of February , 2012 at 5:56 pm

Like last year, I made a concerted effort to actually see several of the movies nominated this year.  I still haven’t seen some of the big ones (The Artist, The Descendents, Ides of March), but I feel good about making educated picks this year.  Of course, I’m still going to hedge my bets by once again picking who should be the winner and the likely winner.
