I have joined the dark legion of Oscar punditry, writing the ongoing Oscar Bait column for the Daily Beast. You may find my current predictions of who will be nominated and win the big trophies right here on Gold Derby’s experts poll.
The ultimate winners will be, according to me: The Descendants, George Clooney, Meryl Streep, Alexander Payne, Christopher Plummer and Shailene Woodley.
Lest there be misunderstanding, these are my predictions not my preferences. Not my preferences at all.
