annual oscar poll

Okay, so this is the first year but whatever... I thought we could take a stab at predicting this year's Oscar winners. Play along if you'd like. Pick who you think will win and then who you think should win. And because its my poll, I'm letting you pick more than one person for who should win. Because sometimes, it is just too hard to make a decision.

I'm limiting it to the big categories because I'm lazy. Besides, I don't think Best Makeup is in doubt. I mean they made Brad Pitt look old and ugly and then drop dead gorgeous. I don't even really like him and I thought he looked fantastic. And I think the smart money is on the folks at Pixar for WALL-E.

Since marymary and I saw the Animated Shorts last week, I'm going to add that La Maison en Petits Cubes deserves to win the award. It was beautiful and you should go hunt it down and watch. (Though I LOVED the others especially This Way Up.)
