Oscar Night 2012: Jack’s Combined Picks

Leading up to tonight’s Academy Awards, I’ve posted eight individual posts predicting my winners in each of the top eight categories (Best Pic & Director, both writing categories and the four acting ones).

Below I present a compiled list of the people/movies I expect to win each category, as well as whom I think should win. In the individual posts, I typed out my rants/rationalizations on each, as well as films/people I thought were snubbed and ones I didn’t think belonged.

If you’d like to re-visit these posts, please click Archives at the top of this page within the blog window, then on Oscar 2012 (a sub category to Movies).
