My Oscar Predictions




I just wanted to do a quick blog about my Oscar Award Predictions for the Academy Awards which will take place tomorrow and be on TV at 8pm EST.

The list of films with nominations that I saw include: Avatar, The Blind Side, District 9, An Education, The Hurt Locker, Inglorious Basterds, Invictus, Nine, A Serious Man, Star Trek, Up.
Some of the major nominated films I did not get to seeing(or didn't want to) include: Crazy Heart, Julie & Julia, The Last Station, Lovely Bones, Precious: Based on the Novel 'Push' by Sapphire, A Single Man, Up in The Air.
