My Oscar Ballot

Every year on Oscar Night, I host a little family get together. We make wonderful food, drink, fill out ballots and, at the end of the night, someone in our house is declared the best Oscar-winner picker. (Better than being the best butt picker, I think.) At any rate, since I’ve been busy with my kids all day and I’m going to be parked on the sofa all evening, this weak post is all I can muster. Here are my picks for the top categories tonight. I am likely hugely wrong (I never win), but I’ve got a glass of Pinot Noir in me and no pride so here goes:

Best Director:  Michel Hazanavicius for The Artist

Best Supporting Actor: Christopher Plummer for Beginners

Best Supporting Actress: Octavia Spencer for The Help

Best Actor: George Clooney for The Descendants (okay…Oscar folks, asking me to choose between George and Brad was just mean)

Best Actress: Viola Davis for The Help

Best Picture: The Artist (which I truly think deserves the honor)

Enjoy laughing at my losing ballot and Happy Oscaring!
