Meryl Will Lose Again, And Other Fail-Safe Oscar Predictions
Check out my new column, in which I detail my exclusive, highly knowledgeable takes on who will win the major categories at the Oscars this Sunday, causing them to exude a kindly glow at least through Tuesday.
Not among the victorious for the kazillionth time in a row is my gal Meryl Streep.
She won two Oscars back when dinosaurs ruled the earth, only to get continually kicked to the curb for someone newer (though to be fair, she did once lose once to the older Helen Mirren -- Meryl loses to everybody!).
Meryl is always the best in any category -- and this year she dominated a so-so film and elevated it with her genius -- but there are some strong (if ridiculous) reasons Oscar won't hand her any more golden boys.
You'll learn about all that, as well as who'll nab the other acting awards, plus the coveted Best Picture honor.
I even address the Best Song category, if only to say, "Throw it away!"
But don't throw out the link to my column. It's pure gold.
And here am I spewing my views to GoldDerby.com's Tom O'Neil:
