OK, not my best showing in choosing which movies would get Oscar nominated but not my worst.
Here's how the Oscar Nominations went.
(green = correct picks)
(red = incorrect picks)
(blue = totally missed it)
Overall I got 63% of my picks right. Sigh.
Looks like the French movie Amour got me. I have yet to see it, but there's still time before the Oscars are awarded on Feb 24th.
