Oscarfever! ’07

It’s awards time once again. Just like last year I’ll present my predictions for who will win the various awards, along with presenting my own winners for each category. Also like last year, I haven’t seen a great many of the contenders (I’ve seen one of the twenty acting nominees, for example). Unlike last year, I’ll be following the Academy’s eligibility rules, so a movie like Three Times, from 2005 but released in the US in 2006 will be winning some awards.

One thought on “Oscarfever! ’07

  1. What’s effed up is that a year and a half ago, I was obsessed with making a movie called “West Bank Story” that was exactly the same concept as the Oscar Winning short! If I had jumped on it, maybe I could’ve won an Oscar!Probably not, though.
