Oh, right, my Oscar picks



I did a Flavorwire post on Friday with my predictions for who I think will win the tiny golden statuettes tonight, but I didn't include my own picks for who I think should win--picks which, in almost every category, do not line up with who I think willwin. I'M SUCH A REBEL.
