I decided to have some fun with the latest Gurus chart – no I didn’t do anything so dramatic as to flip the world on its axis but I did predict Sophia Loren a sentimental nod for Nine and Zach Galifianakis for The Hangover – I kind of wish I’d read the comments on the Star Trek post first – I might have put down Leonard Nimoy. Here’s the thing about Oscar predicting – at this stage, one has nothing to lose so why not play around a little.
Oh, and I’m the only Guru who is not predicting Up for Best Pic – I’ve stated my reasons enough on this site.¬† So many live actions to choose from….animated has its own category…Wall-E didn’t even get in….I am sure I will have egg all over my face. There is always that movie readers get to grapefruit my face with and Up will probably be it.
What would be your wild card picks? They have to be people no one saw coming, though. It’s the kind of thing that, if it pays off, it pays off big!
