Just a heads up that I've finished updating the Oscar Prediction Charts. Obviously I shall continue tinkering to prettify and add links and fix and whatnot but this is where I stand now. You'll notice that I am still high on Argo and Les Miz in many categories where others have dismissed them but we haven't even heard from the Guilds (particularly the Actors) and we've only just begun; critics awards aren't everything. The Animation/Documentary and Foreign pages are still being reconstructed and Original Song... well, I'm lost. I'll get to that one this week. It's true that I haven't updated that one in ages. So much new information... no time to process from feverish delirium and screener / screening / precursor frenzy. This accelerated Oscar schedule gets two Uma-Cowgirl sized* Thumbs Down from me thus far.
I realize that posting has been truly and bizarrely minimal in one of the busiest weeks of the year but I shall eventually rise from the ashes. I think. 2012 has just not been kind to me -- this is not a self-pity party but the plain WTF truth -- but hopefully you will be (kind) and stick around.
