It's Oscar Time

I have to say I'm a little disappointed that I decided not to go all out for the Oscar tonight like I did last year. But I think its partly because the best picture nominees didn't quite lend themselves to food. Whereas last year we were able to have Slumdog Millionaire Chicken Tika Masala.

I guess this year I could have gone with Avatar Blueberries?

Even though I have no fancy feast prepared it doesn't mean I'm not just as excited. Nor does it mean I didn't think long and hard about my Oscar picks. Here's to hoping to beat the boy for the third year in a row with my Oscar predictions. And without further adieu, here are my thoughts on who will hopefully win!

  1. Haha I'm not HUGE into the Oscars but I am gonna watch with my friends tonight.

    Other then pretty much KNOWING that Avatar is gonna win best picture I don't really have any picks. I haven't seen a lot of the other movies unfortunately!

  2. I really, really hope that The Blind Side wins best picture. I know it's a long shot, given that it's up against Avatar, but a girl can hope, right?!

  3. I'm totally not into award shows at all... Instead, I spent the night driving two hours from my home town to my university. Yuck.

    I did really enjoy Avatar and The Blind Side though.

  4. I really hope Sandra Bullock wins!

    Thanks for stopping by my blog!! I am way behind on my scrapbooking.

  5. I'm really glad that Sandra Bullock won. I love her and I thought she did a great job.

  6. Good call on best director. I was hoping Up In The Air would win something. :)
