There is no debating. There is no budging. There is no compromise.
Yeesh. I sound like the Governor here.
What I am talking about is not what's going on in downtown Madison. No, my focus is on downtown Hollywood this weekend and The 83rd Annual Academy Awards.
I've taken the Top 10 Oscar categories and locked in what is sure to be guaranteed winners.
How do I know these will be winners? Don't ask such silly questions. Some things must remain unknown.
