…was lookin through that great big hot mess known as Craigslist for job leads today when I caught sight of this gem:
Let’s just say I’m glad I didn’t actually put money on these.
Well, I did make most of the picks hastily, and without really thinking…
Anyway, of my 24 predictions, 8 were correct:
Best Picture (“The King’s Speech”)
Actor in a Leading Role (Colin Firth)
Actor in a Supporting Role (Christian Bale)
Animated Feature Film (“Toy Story 3”)
Music – Original Score (“The Social Network” – Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross)
Short fim – live action (“God of Love”)
Sound mixing (“Inception”)
Writing – adapted screenplay (Aaron Sorkin, “The Social Network”)
Better luck next year, eh?
Thanks, Katie, for reminding me about this one!
Some sad songs build to the achy-weepy crescendo. This one comes out swinging – “Just yesterday morning they let me know you were gone.” No beating around the bush here, you know it’s going to be a rough one to get through.
