Oscar Predictions

Ok, so the Grammys Prediction post was a woeful failure, drawing exactly two entries.

Surely, this one will do better.

Post your predictions for who will win the Oscar for: 1) Best Picture, 2) Actor in a Lead, 3) Actress in a Lead, 4) Best Director, 5) Actor in a Supporting Role, 6) Actress in a Supporting Role.

You can click on “the Oscar” above for a link to the nominees (and a ballot if you’re playing along at home with friends).

Lounge Winner gets a firm handshake and some hand sanitizer. Go!
