Oscar Pool Time!

No prizes except bragging rights - it’s time for the annual Oscar Pool!

To play, go here: The Aces Full of Links Oscar Pool Page and fill out the form.

Feel free to discuss your choices in the comments. Polling closes when the Oscar ceremony begins.

After the Oscars I will announce who came closest, and the winner will bask in well-deserved glory.

PLEASE make sure you include your name or nickname. I will not keep track of any entries without names.

And thanks to Defective Yeti for providing the engine.

Sweet! I sent my picks, but for debating purposes, here they are:

Best Picture: Little Miss Sunshine
Best Director: Martin Scorsese for The Departed
Best Actor: Will Smith in The Pursuit of Happyness
Best Actress: Helen Mirren in The Queen
Best Animated Feature Film: Happy Feet
Best Documentary Feature: An Inconvenient Truth

I think United 93 will win even though it shouldn't, in a sappy nod to the surviving family or perhaps to the troops or something. But I voted for who I think SHOULD win, instead of who I think WILL win. We'll see how it shakes out.

Since I haven't seen any of these, all of my guesses were WAGs and wishful thinking.

Happy Feet; Inconvenient Truth; The Departed; Clint Eastwood; Forrest Whitaker; and Judy Densch.

I haven't seen most of the movies, though I have seen Cars and Truth. But I never know enough at Oscar time to pick with any intelligence.
