If you didn’t already know the 85th Academy Awards (also known as the Oscars) are on this Sunday, February 24, at 7pm on ABC hosted by Seth McFarlane (Creator of “Family Guy”). Here is the entire list of the categories and nominees. Glad we got that out of the way. Now time to get down to it.
Here are my picks for the major categories:
For Good Measure:
Just throwing it out there:
So those are my picks. My heart and head are nearly always conflicted. I’m a huge fan of “Bernie” with Jack Black. I am happy to see it’s getting a nod at tonight’s Film Independent Spirit Awards in the Best Feature category. I’m also surprised Matt Damon’s “Promised Land” and Dustin Hoffman’s directorial debut starring Maggie Smith “Quartet” didn’t sneak in with any nominations. Who do you think will win? Who do you want to win? Who wasn’t nominated that you thought deserves it?
Have some down time at work? Check out the list and trailers of 2013 movies, some out now.

Closing thought: The Oscar’s put too much weight on the host. Hosts are generally overrated, underused, and lately have been polarizing. Expect to be underwhelmed. If you go in with that expectation you’ll probably be pretty entertained. It is live television after all.
