Well, the end of February only means one thing for me – it’s Oscar time!  This year’s Academy Awards, the 81st event, promise to be a little different than previous years. Awards shows this season have been up in viewing numbers, so the Oscars producers certainly want to jump on that train.  As such, rumors are running rampant about the show’s “younger” and “more intimate” feel.  This includes cutting the Best Original Song performances down from full-song performances to 65-second snippets (a decision that prompted Peter Gabriel, who is nominated for a song from the movie WALL-E, to pull out of performing at the show), a live performance during the annual “in memorium” presentation (Queen Latifah singing “I’ll Be Seeing You”… a song that just reminds me of The Notebook), and younger, more relevant presenters (Zac Efron!  Robert Pattinson!  Fangirl scream!).  One thing’s for sure – it should be interesting to watch.

As for the awards themselves, this year finds them dividedly squarely into two groups: the sure things and the toss ups.  Below, find my picks for who I think will win (and why) and who I’m rooting for (and why) the major movie and acting categories.

Susan, I knew out of all of us Taycobbers, you've probably seen most of the nominated movies. I've only seen 2... Slumdog and Benjamin Button.
Out of the 2, I liked Slumdog.

Thanks again for taking the time to post this. Feel free to post more.
