Oscar Predictions

Like my friend Charlie, I love the Oscars. I spend lots of time thinking about my predictions, and even more time trying to see all the nominated movies. But, unlike Charlie, I just pick six I think will be nominated - no top five and runners-up. Also, I know so little about the screenplay categories, I'm just going to leave them out this time, but they'll be in my updated predictions that will come out right before the nominations.

I love the Oscars. I love all awards shows, but the Oscars especially. I can't wait!
