Oscar Wrap Up

Of the 14 categories I made predictions on, I was only right 6 times. A mere 42% correct. I initally had The Pianist winning in a few categories (Director, Best Actor, Screenplay), but changed due the Roman Polanski legal scandal. Looks like I should have stuck with my first choice.

It was a bit crazy to spend so much time indoors considering all the good weather we had, but I really wanted to finish up before the week started and other commitments got in the way.
