On the latest edition of Oscar Poker, Gold Derby’s Tom O’Neil was our special guest. His long-running Oscar site, which has been around as long as mine (formerly Oscarwatch.com) — roughly 13 years – has launched its 2012/2013 Oscar Predictions. Tom and I are old pals and he’s one of my favorite people to talk to about anything, but especially about the Oscars. The two of us aren’t always right – I remember last year around this time talking about how we thought The Artist was too light to be a Best Picture winner.
In the lead over at Gold Derby are two films – one seen, one not seen: Lincoln and Silver Linings Playbook. The former has pedigree, the latter has its great response in Toronto. Again, it is just too soon to know how the race will play out but Gold Derby has gotten the ball rolling. What is the main difference between Gold Derby and the Gurus of Gold you might ask?
