I know I promised an update of my Oscar picks and I did not. I know. I suck.
I am sitting here watching the red carpet with the Oscar about to begin and I feel I must make some comment. I have not seen any more of the movies that are nominated, so I feel unqualified to hazard an intelligent guess.
So let me just say, good luck to all of the nominees. Some things I would like to see:
Meryl Streep should win an oscar by now. I know Octavia Spencer is the favorite, and I would also like for her to win if there was a way both could. But realistically, Glen Close should probably get it for Albert Nobbs.
Christopher Plummer is a superlative actor and is my favorite to win.
As for best picture I will defer to my brother. He said his favorite of the ones nominated was Midnight in Paris, but the one he thinks should win is Tree of Life. My prediction, The Artist will win.
Well, the show is getting ready to start. Enjoy everyone! I will probably be tweeting @twitlit1000.
