These are my picks for the Academy Awards. I give my self ONE point if I get “Who Will Win” right, and I get a 1/2 a point if I get “Who Should win” right.

I would love to see Annette benning win best actress, but she won’t, and Natalie Portman did do a lot for the part and has not won before. I guess I just wasn’t a huge Black Swan fan. I loved the King’s Speech, and it seems like the front runner, I really liked The Social Network but I am not sure it deserves the Oscar for best picture, but it was really good.
