2012 Oscar Predictions

Voting for the Oscar party tonight, and yep, those are swag bags in the background



I know you are all waiting, with bated breath, to see what my picks are for this year’s Academy Awards.  I do a ballot pool at my annual party, where you fill out your ballot IN ITS ENTIRETY and toss $5 into a pot.  Whoever gets the most categories right wins the cash.  You should know, I’ve never won (although I usually do OK), but I feel good about my picks this year.  Feel free to use these for your own Oscar pool 🙂

I don’t have the energy to list every single nominee, so I’m just going to note what’s getting my vote – precisely, what I THINK will win, not what I WANT to win.  There’s a difference. 🙂
