Predictions for Next Year's Oscars by youngcannibals

So I viewed the Academy Awards telecast last night, but I won't bore you with my opinions (except I thought Hugh Jackman was terrific as the host).

I saw the show over at my friend's Oscar party, and we all watched everything from the pre-show stuff to the closing credits. However, I left early and skipped the Barbara Walters interview show. We all ate and drank wine like a bunch of bohemian art critics.

And like a lot of people, we had a contest to see who could pick the most winners.

In my old age, I've learned to tone down my competitive edge. I pick and choose my battles, and will only go all out for something that's really important to me.

But for some reason, I really want to win these stupid games. My only problem is that I don't really pay attention to movie industry stuff. I could care less, in fact. Other than "Slumdog Millionaire," I didn't really know who was nominated for anything this year. I ended up being tied for last place in the game.

Next year though... next year will be a different story. I will not come in last again. I will pay close attention to all the early award winners that might influence the Oscars, and I will listen to all the internet rumors. I'll even watch some of the movies that get nominated next year.

Yea verily... I will post on this very website all my picks, and you will all gasp in amazement at the level of accuracy of my predictions.

Or maybe I'll just stay home and watch cartoons.
