Predictions: Oscars 2012

 

Basically I think this year’s Oscars are pretty poor. Full of glaring omissions (Drive, 50/50, Senna, The Guard) and total what the fudge films (War Horse, Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close and Albert Nobbs).

But whats done is done. So out of the nominees i’m going to predict and also list who I would like to win.
