My Picks for the 2012 84th Academy Awards

It is almost that time of year again. After the sweet, sweaty, delicious smell of football season has slowly diminished, their lifts a new kind of smell. That smell - of course - is the smell of... THE OSCARS!


I always love watching the Academy Awards. The magnificent films, the supremely talented actors and actresses, and the best part about it is that they are all wearing TUXEDOS! You don't see that kind of class at the People's Choice Awards!

Anyway, the nominees are out. Who is going to take home the prize? This year, they have only nominated 9 films, which I thought was very weird. They couldn't find one more movie to throw in there? (J. Edgar perhaps?) As I do every year, and I'm sure that most of you do the same, I will try and guess who will win the Oscars this year. Okay? HERE WE GO:

BEST PICTURE: The Artist (I haven't seen it yet, but I heard that it is phenominal)

BEST ACTOR (LEADING ROLE): George Clooney (The Descendents)

BEST ACTRESS (LEADING ROLE): Meryll Streep (The Iron Lady) (much to my chagrin)

BEST ACTOR (SUPPORTING ROLE): Kenneth Branagh (My Week with Marilyn)

BEST ACTRESS (SUPPORTING ROLE): Berenice Bejo (The Artist)

BEST ANIMATED FEATURE: A Cat in Paris (Haven't seen it, but the American choices are so bad, this one has to win. Going out on a limb)
