Oscar Pick ‘Em

Good morning, b-rollers! Christmas Day is here!

This will be a short post because there will be THREE POSTS TODAY – I believe that is a new b-roll record, and I bow at your applause – but here is my complete list of Oscar picks.

Well gee, I don’t know about you but I think the Oscars could use a few more categories! I’ll see you back here tonight for the Oscar red carpet live blog; and I’ll live blog the Oscar telecast in a separate post once the show begins. You know, just in case you can’t stand the E! team for long either.

See you tonight!
