Plus, an outfit in Great Britain called Voucher Codes asked me to do a post on my choices as part of an Oscar predictions contest they are running.
Frankly, I'm much better at reviewing past Oscar contests than keeping up with the current race. And I haven't seen everything yet. But, what the heck? So, here are my choices:
