The Good and Bad

The good news this year's Oscars came to a much more interesting finish than in past years. The bad news is that put a major cramp in my final predictions.

This year I faired 50% in all categories, the top 8 and the top 5. Compared to last year's 61%, 75% and 75%. I did, however, increase my all time odds in many categories. Lord and Mind did indeed tie for the most awards won though both went home with one less than I predicted.

Oh well. Until next year Actually, until Tony noms in a few weeks...

I will make some year ahead of time predictions that the following films look to be top contenders for next year's Oscars:

  • Gangs of New York
  • Catch Me If You Can
  • Minority Report
  • The Lord of the Rings II
  • Chicago
  • Roberto Benigni's Pinocchio
  • Ripley's Game
  • The Hours
  • Waking Up in Reno

Times have changed and so too has the design of this site. Journey back in time with me for some redesign fun!

I have a healthy fascination with the phenomenon of events in relation to the musical Assassins.

I'm really not sure of the appeal of Mark Bakalor's site, because frankly I suspect there is none, but hell, I check it at least thrice daily, and you should too!
