The Oscar Locker – The Results of the 82nd Academy Awards Are In

I ended up getting 18/24 categories right, which is one of my best years of predicting in awhile. For the most part I am very happy with the results of tonight’s ceremony. Really the biggest disappointment for me was Sandy over Meryl. Someday will be Meryl’s day again, I just know it. 

But boy was it Kathryn Bigelow’s night. Two Oscars in five minutes and one glass ceiling shattered forever.

  1. dont you mean 2010?

    • it’s for film in 2009, therefore it was the 2009 Oscar race. it just aired in 2010. but I changed it to 82nd, because that way there’s no debate over whether to name the show after the year the films are from or the year the ceremony is aired.

  2. Good job on your 18 of 24. You did a lot of research and thinking.
