Oscar picks

Ok here are my Oscar picks.  A few weeks ago I wrote in a blog entry that I thought Million Dollar Baby was the best film but I wanted to see Ray again just to be sure since I had seen the rest in a short timespan.  Well I went out and bought Ray but never watched it.  I am so lame.  I never realized how lame I was until I went to go through the picks and realized there is still a fair number of movies I never saw such as most of the docs, the animation, Hotel Rwanda, or Being Juliisa.  What follows is my somewhat educated guesses who should win, not really who I would like to see win.  In many categories they are flat out guesses.  I promise not to modify my blog after the post which is kind of a lame thing about blogs is that if you post it and then edit it the orgininal time stamp is still there.
