Jim’s 2013 Oscar Predictions


The time has arrived when we find out what Hollywood thought was the best of the best from 2012. Will Ben beat out the President? Will Spielberg bring home the statue again or will David O. Russell pull an upset. Will Daniel Day Lewis, eh, who are we kidding, of course he’s going to win. I think the biggest question on everyone’s mind though is; will Seth MacFarlane deliver the goods. Can you remember who won what at the Golden Globes? No. But I hear Tina Fey and Amy Poehler killed it. Personally, I think best picture nominees should be based on what both critics and audiences agreed with. This year, one of those nominees would be The Avengers. But I don’t make the rules. Also, I’m not allowed to vote. I’ve listed my predictions below. Don’t take these to heart because I usually suck at picking the winners, but hey, who knows, this year could be different. If you’re on Twitter I’ll be tweeting (Redsixx) fun facts about the nominated movies and people, and also my reactions to the winners and losers.
