Oscars 2012: Final Predictions

Posted February 25, 2012 by Max in Featured

Well here we are the evening before the Oscar ceremony celebrating 2011’s selection of films. It’s been a long road and while I do believe some films were over-shadowed, they stuck with nine nominees this year which makes it hard to complain too much. My list for my favorite film of the year is available on the website for those who want to know what I truly think. While I would prefer different winners in a few of the categories, I picked according to what I think will win. Enjoy the show. Winners in each category are in Bold.
