Oscar Picks

It’s Oscar week. I’m excited, and unashamed of that. And now that it’s a week out, it’s time to make my picks. Last year I went 15 for 24, for a 63% success rate. Can I beat last year’s score? We’ll see, here are my picks.

Before I list them out, here’s the picks in video form. I used two pieces of music, the first being an excerpt from Trent Reznor’s score for The Social Network, my pick for Best Original Score. The second being “I See The Light” from Tangled, my pick for Best Original Song.
