Oscar Predictions

I've been invited to an Oscar party on Tuesday night (when the Oscars are broadcast on the Armed Forces Network in BF) and I have to dress up as a celebrity. The hosts have promised an actual red carpet with small children posing as paparazzi. (Have I ever complained that life in BF is boring?)

All the guests were invited to vote so here's my list of choices. Please keep in mind that I have not seen any of the nominated movies.

And just for fun from the Roger Ebert website:

I find it interesting that, of the three articles you linked, the only one that Ebert chose to add derisive commentary to was the conservative one.

"Media Bias in Film Reviews" - sounds like a fun topic for your next paper!

Eh. I generally try to keep my political views relatively discreet in class, lest it aversely affect my grade.
