I’ve been observing and analyzing the Academy Awards for more than 30 years, and I’ve developed sort of a “sixth sense” when it comes to the Oscars.
Last year I correctly predicted all the major category winners in my article for FoxNews.com.
Let’s see if the lightning can strike two years in a row.
You can expect to say to yourself “What were they thinking?” when you see at least a couple of glitzy get-ups. (Remember Tilda Swinton last year?) And you can be sure that the show will run longer than the scheduled three hours. (A midnight best picture announcement has become sort of a tradition, hasn’t it?)
But when it comes to predicting the winners, there may be fewer sure things than you think.
Maybe “Slumdog Millionaire” appears to be a lock for best picture, but when was the last time a small independent film with no big stars shot in the Indian subcontinent won the top award?
