Prophet without honor

I didn't watch the Oscars last night; I was busy writing and just didn't feel up to it. However, I will graciously list the reasons I am not a professional prognosticator:

1. I predicted that "Bowling for Columbine" would not win Best Documentary because the Academy wouldn't want to risk the sort of speechifying which in fact took place

2. I predicted that Eminem would not win Best Song because the Academy hates Eminem and wouldn't want to sully their "image" by acknowledging him

3. I predicted that "Adaptation" would win Best Screenplay because that's the award they always give to the best movie that doesn't win anything else

4. I predicted that Rob Marshall would win Best Director for "Chicago" because the Academy wouldn't want to mess around with Polanski

5. I predicted that Adrien Brody would win Best Actor and when he accepted the award he would make out with the presenter for like half an hour, but I thought it would be Julia Roberts, not Halle Berry
