Oscar blogging

Well, since I'm an LA-based blogger, I have to at least have ONE post about the Oscars!

If you are a regular visitor to this outpost on the web, you see the occasional movie review. I wouldn't be considered a big movie goer though. And as proof of that, I offer you this tidbit: I haven't seen any of films nominated for the big awards!

I'll print out the Oscar nominee list and make my predictions before show time so you can use them! I won the pick'em contest two years in-a-row (several years ago) at Oscar viewing parties - "Past performance is not an indicator of future results" - and on those years I also saw either none or one or at most two of the nominated films!

UPDATE: Here you go, my picks for the Oscars...

The big six:
Actor - Jamie Foxx (won)
Supporting Actor - Morgan Freeman (won)
Actress - Hilary Swank (won)
