78% Accuracy

I guessed 7 of the 9 films that were nominated for best picture of 2011. The two that I missed are ones that nobody would of guessed, they came out of left field. So the films I picked were:

The Artist
The Descendants
The Help
Midnight In Paris
War Horse

and the two that were not on my list:

Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close
The Tree Of Life

Seeing how there are nine films and not the maximum of ten, leads me to believe that there won't be much competition this year for best picture. Will a 51 and 84 year drought be broken? Can Woody Allen win a fourth Oscar? Why was Albert Brooks snubbed for supporting actor?

I'll post my predictions a few hours before the award ceremony. This is because the love of my life, my beautiful wife, have a fierce competition every year when it comes to picking the Oscars. It first started as a fun competition but now has grown into civil war. The winner used to get great prizes, never mind you what they were, but it grew more into moral superiority as all marriages do. But since she does read this blog, I won't give her any clues, otherwise I might lose.

If you are reading my wonderful wife, I'll give you one clue: The Muppets have a 50-50 chance of winning best song.

  1. Thanks for the clue darling husband. At least I know that I'll get one right.
