final oscar predictions

Well it’s that time of year again… tomorrow morning’s announcement will bring us one step closer to Oscar night. So, though it seems hardly relevant this year due to precursor clean sweeps almost universally in most major categories (I’ll try to attempt making some bold choices here or there to avoid a yawn-fest, though I’ll probably regret it later), it’s time to make final predictions about what’s to come when Mo’Nique takes the stage tomorrow morning…

    I'd be surprised if Alice In Wonderland wins anything. I'm even more surprised its even nominated. I was really disappointed by it, and I even felt Burton's trademark imagination and visuals were sub-par.For Best Film I'd like to see Black Swan or The King's Speech win.
