Oscar Meyer Weiner Predictions 2k12

Last year, I put my Oscar Predictions up and maybe it was good luck, because I did pretty well. 22 out of 24. Not horrible.

However, this year, there are many, MANY more tossups. Director, Lead Actress, Lead Actor, Cinematography and the sound categories are all very close. Viola or Meryl? Marty and Michel? Big one is George or Jean (the George of France)? Will Brad split George's vote, or could Brad even pull ahead in the end? It's gonna be interesting...

Here's my predictions and I'd love to see yours in the comments as well!

    yay for mr. morris lessmore, the animated short!
    yay for the muppets winning best original song.
