Getting One's Actors Together

With just a few short hours to go until the Oscars ceremony begins tonight, I thought it was time for me to pick my favourites in each of the major categories. This time, however, I thought I would also have a go at predicting who I think will win each award as well as noting my own choice for the category. Of course, my predictions of the winners are likely to be more accurate in those categories where I have seen all or most of the movies shortlisted. By listing both my favourites and my predictions for how the Academy will vote, I get double the opportunity to brag about my prowess if I do well, I suppose, although if I don't do so well, I'll look like even more of a cultural ignoramus.

Best Picture: An Education / Avatar [seen 8/10]
