2012 Oscar Predictions



Below are my predictions in all categories for the 84th Academy Awards airing Sunday. Since I haven't seen ALL of the nominees I'll dispense with the "should wins." I hesitate calling these "final" since it's  still possible I'll tinker with a few before Sunday night. But mostly, this is it. And just a reminder to those who may have missed my guest appearance on Dennis Has a Podcast, you can listen to a more detailed rundown and analysis of the various races by clicking here. As usual, I'll be posting my thoughts on the show on Monday.

Do you offer any predictions on unemployment? Do you think structural unemployment will be resolved? Do you think the President's stimulus for the economy will make a difference.
