2010 Oscar Picks/Winners

POST-OSCAR UPDATE. Well the Oscars are over, and what a snoozefest that was! Yes, the Oscars always drag, but the teaming of Anne Hathaway and James Franco was an absolute mess. Poor Annie sang, danced and grinned her way through with no help from Jimmy Boy, but she couldn't carry the show on her young inexperienced shoulders. Didn't you notice the energy in the Kodak Theatre and in your living room pick up when Billy Crystal came on stage? Alas, that was too brief a moment to savour! Who knew that Kirk Douglas, a Stroke survivor with a speech impediment would have stolen the show. Experience shows, people!

So, how did you do in your Oscar pool? As usual, I lost (see WINNERS below in RED). I will always go with my heart just in case the Academy voters do too, and a surprise happens. With 7 winners selected, Kirk Cooper of Film Market Access wins our pool.
