Do or Do Not.

O Glorious Day!

without comments

Tomorrow is one of my most very favoritest days of the year. Tomorrow is a day I hold as holiday as much as I do all those consumerist gift-giving ones. A day when I jump out of bed joyfully, eager to see what surprises the day will bring.

That’s right, friends. It’s Oscar Nomination Day.

In preparation for the big day, I’m rolling out my predictions for who’s gonna get nominated for what. These predictions are based only on what I’ve read about most of the movies, since I’ve seen so few of them, and my incredibly insightful analysis of Academy voting trends. And these aren’t necessasrily the peeps and flicks I think should be nominated, only who I think will be — big diff.

I’m not telling you yet who I think will win. For that, you’ll have to wait until a couple of days before the awards ceremony.

So hold onto your underpants… here we go:
