And the Oscar goes to...

Chris and I are excited to see who wins the Oscars tonight.

Fortunately, I was able to see all of the Best Picture nominees this year.  You can find my recaps of each movie here - Part 1 and Part 2.  Now, I've made my picks.  And so have Chris and my parents.  Chris saw a majority of the films and my parents have only Amour left on their list to see. Please keep in mind we are picking based on who we WANT to win not who we think the Academy will choose to win.  These are votes we would cast IF we were a part of the Academy!
