My Oscar Picks

Over on The Bureau Chiefs site a few of us are doing Oscar picks for Sunday night’s big Hollywood extravaganza. I wanted to participate, but having seen, at last count, zero of the nominated movies, wasn’t sure how I could. Oh yeah, I could have gone with Doctor K’s scientific method, but how exciting is that?

I decided that rather than go with SCIENCE! I would go with the next best thing: random chance!

With this trusty tool I went ahead with picking surefire wins for Sunday night. Here’s what the Cube of Fortune decided on:

Best Picture: District 9
Best Actor: George Clooney in “Up in the Air”
Best Supporting Actor: Stanley Tucci in “The Lovely Bones”
