My Oscar Predictions

The Academy Awards are in a few days and although if a movie or actor that I picked doesn’t win an award my opinion on the movie or their performance won’t change I am going to make my predictions in the 24 categories as a mental guessing warm up for March Madness.  Brackets will start being made in a few weeks and I need to sharpen my lucky guessing skills.  If my Oscar picks yield good results then I am already ahead of the game for March Madness since I’ve only seen 3 of the 9 films nominated for best picture (Beasts of the Southern Wild, Life of Pi and Les Mis), Brave, Skyfall and Wreck-It-Ralph.
