Well, folks, it’s been a long year. Actually, I can’t tell if it’s been a long year or a short one. It seems like yesterday that I was hearing the Oscar nominations that excluded The Dark Knight from the Best Picture lineup to include The Reader instead. I didn’t think the inclusion of The Reader was what was wrong, but rather the established order of things. Films get put into an Oscars box and they kind of move alone all season in a mostly unpredictable fashion. They are usually the films that have the least amount of baggage, generally speaking, or that they have one unique thing about them that pushes them through.
Put your predictions in the comments section. If you all agree to find the winner, I will award a prize. The counting part of it will be too challenging for me.
