Cheat Sheet: Oscar predictions for tonight

Posted By on Sun, Feb 26, 2012 at 2:04 AM


Nothing good ever comes out of predicting the winners at the Academy Awards, but I do it every year for the same reason diehard college basketball fans fill out their March Madness brackets: they’re gluttons for embarrassment, especially when said bracket busts. I don’t anticipate winning my Oscar pool tonight, but if you’re hard up for some last minute picks, you could probably do a lot worse than cheating off me.

The 84th Annual Academy Awards air tonight on ABC at 7:30 p.m.
