And the Oscar goes to...Argo

I did it! I got 20 predictions correct this year, meeting the target set out in my New Year's Movie Resolutions. In other news, Argo won Best Picture, Best Editing and Best Adapted Screenplay as expected. Life of Pi came away with the most awards though, winning Best Director, Best Cinematography, Best Visual Effects and Best Original Score. I thought the show was pretty good. I loved how musical it was. It's finally time to officially put 2012 to rest. Looking forward to great things in 2013!

  1. Nice Job. I only picked 17 correctly. Congrats especially in this crazy year.

  2. You did well. I guessed 20. Did not change Spielberg to Ang Lee. However, I am pretty satisfied with the winners.
