There Will Be Gold: Oscar Predictions Come True
Alzheimer's is a big winner is at the Oscars!
I got 19 out of 25! Correctly predicted Oscar nominations, that is! The big winners? Anyone playing an assassin, a gangster, a greedy whore, a vengeance queen, a queen period, or an Alzheimer's patient. The losers? The Simpsons Movie plus most of the people in Into The Wild.
