The Results

Okay. Didn't get home till about 45 minutes into the show. I guess because they're trying to skew it towards a younger audience, they had Seth McFarlane as host. My opinion? It sucked. He wasn't funny. It made me miss Billy Crystal all the more. The whole thing seemed like a really cheesy amateur stage play. It didn't seem coordinated at all. Anyway, enough about that. Here are the results compared to my choices from yesterday. Bold are my selections. Italics are the winners. Bold italics are where I picked the correct ones. I really didn't do too bad.

My Uneducated Oscar Guesses

Here we go again! It's that time of year when Hollywood Elite like to pat themselves on the back. Every year, I try to guess who will win in the major categories. And, like most of the past years, I have yet to see most of the movies. (To be quite honest, the only movie I saw in a theater in 2012 was Frankenweenie). So, here they are. As usual, my choices will be in bold text. Tomorrow, when the results are in, I will compare.
