Oscar Predictions 2011

February 26, 2011 Leave a comment Go to comments

I have to open with a statement of regret: I meant to have full reviews of all of the main Oscar-nominated movies before the broadcast of the actual awards tomorrow.  But then SNOW happened, and I got a day off work on Friday, and my fully-composed reviews of The Social Network, 127 Hours, and Animal Kingdom are all currently residing on my work computer.  And I am just too lazy to rewrite them.

So, basically, some of my predictions and/or preferences are going to seem out-of-the-blue.  Reviews that will elucidate my points of view are forthcoming!
