Make Your Oscar Predictions Here

I can't say that I've seen most of the nominated films this year, the perils of trying to find a decent babysitter. I thought Children of Men

oscartop.jpg I can't say that I've seen most of the nominated films this year, the perils of trying to find a decent babysitter. I thought Children of Men was very powerful and it stayed with me for days after I saw it. But to my surprise, it was only nominated for a few technical awards. Little Miss Sunshine was quirky and smart, but Oscar-worthy? I'm not sure. My husband saw The Departed and really loved it. It would be nice to see Scorsese get recognized at last.

So put down your picks for the awards. Oh, and if you're like my family, go ahead and dish on the fashion as well. My brother is hoping for spectacular things from Salma Hayek.
