2010 OSCARS: Final Guesses Before the Big Night


Tonight is the big night. It seems like this awards season has gone on FOREVER so I’m relieved it finally ends. I’ve talked ad nauseum about the nominees, so now I’m simply going to list who or what I think will win, followed by who or what I think should win (won’t discuss foreign, doc, or the shorts because I haven’t seen any of the films yet). I’m not going to lie, I’m pretty good at this. Last year, I won the Outguess Ebert contest. I got a call from his people and everything, but unfortunately I was a few weeks short of 21 and therefore ineligible. That sucked…

Anyway, here are my picks for tonight’s show. I’ll be periodically tweeting (@johnlgilpatrick) throughout the night, and I’ll have a reaction post up tomorrow morning. I hope you all enjoy the show!
