The 80th Annual Academy Awards finally arrive tomorrow, Sunday, February 24th, and that means almost everyone is thinking about Oscars this weekend. Our friends over at Film School Rejects have compiled a complete Online Community Oscar Predictions Chart that features predictions from 10 movie websites, including both of FS.net's submissions (both Ken's and Alex's). While there isn't exactly a physical prize, endless respect and bragging rights are at stake, and those are of the utmost importance amongst us online folk. This chart is one of the coolest things I've seen put together in a while, so definitely check it out as we lead up to the final ceremony tomorrow night.
The chart, which you can see a small snippet of below, features predictions from all 10 of the websites organized by category with a photo of each choice to signify who they picked. You definitely need to see the chart in all of its full glory, so click the photo below or head over to FSR.
There are some truly odd choices found on here, including John Campea's Juno dominance and George Roush's pick of Tilda Swinton for Supporting Actress. And it seems Ken and I were the only two who chose Amy Ryan, as the rest seem to be vying for Cate Blanchett. As for Sicko for documentary, does it really have a chance? And last but not least, come on FSR staff - Norbit?! Do NOT tell me that god awful pile of crap is going to win an Oscar!
So don't forget to root for Ken's or Alex's predictions tomorrow night with the hope that we can take that the top prize! Until the Oscars finally start, you can mull over this predictions chart and rant about who's going to win, who's going to lose, and who just doesn't know crap about movies.
