My 2010 Oscar Predications

I love the movies. I watch all movies, even the bad ones. Im the type who likes to base my own opinion on movies than trusting the critics. Alot of the time I agree with the critics, but there are times when we are on the opposite page.

Its that time of year, Oscar time. I love the Academy Awards! Gives me the opportunity to root for some of my favorite movies of the year. The Academy did not disappoint this year. This is probably the first year that I agree with ALL of the nominations. It is going to make it hard for me to choose who I think is going to win. Not only will I share who I think is going to win, but I will share who I want to win. I will put the word WILL next to the ones that I think will win and will put the word WANT next to the ones I want to win. Here we go:
