"Why is no one read-yyy?"

I have to admit, boys and girls, I was a little dismayed that no one picked up on the awesome Oscar Predictions contest I threw down last weekend. After all, I am offering a gift package filled with candy and an Oscar movie that would surely be awesome.

I am reposting the contest as a 12-category contest, along with a slight tweaking in predictions (calm down, it's one pick). The contest is open until noon on Sunday, and as long as your predictions are posted somewhere in plain sight on Facebook (either my Wall, the comments section on this post or Pick Yer Horses 2009, etc.) The categories you should pick in are marked with an asterisk.

Good luck to all competitors!

I'm a bad bloggie - don't go to movies in theaters (slightly claustropophic) and only watch certain types so am woefully culturally illiterate about most movies.
