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:
