BuzzSugar's Picks: The 2009 Oscars

BuzzSugar's Picks: The 2009 Oscars

OK, everyone, it's nearly time! The Oscars kick off in just a few measly hours, and Pop, Molly, and I couldn't be more excited to be blogging and Twittering the scoop straight from LA. I can't wait to check out what everyone's wearing on the red carpet and, of course, to see who takes home the big awards. Which is where this post comes in.


You have till noon PST today to enter my Oscar ballot contest, and with the grand prize of a year at the movies and five runner-up prizes of Fandango gift cards, there's really no reason not to enter. But maybe you've been waiting because you couldn't quite decide the likely winners in a few categories. Well, I'm going out on a limb and making my predictions. Below the jump, you'll see which films I think will win in all 24 categories. Ready to check out my best guesses? Just read more.
