Your picks sound great, Scott.

This year I don't have THAT deep a rooting interest in who wins what. Would have liked to see "The Dark Knight," and "Gran Torino" up for best picture of the year. LOVED both of those films. They SHOULD have gotten more love than they did by the academy.

Wish I was in LA so I could hang out with you and the rest of the cool people and watch the Oscars. Whatever you're doing partywise, I hope you have fun.

Pretty good picks, even though I don't want Slumdog to win anything. I do think Mickey will win though. Both Sean and Mickey are equally deserving but Mickey is the comeback story, and have you seen his acceptance speeches? Brilliant.

Was anyone else horrified by the camera work? You could hardly see the people who passed away this year, a tribute I always look forward to as a final goodbye (and I have a fairly large tv). Instead of honoring their work, some jack a** camera man was showing off! Then the audience is laughing at Ben Stiller and do we know why? And seriously, hundreds of actors in the room and we have to cut to Angelina when Jen is on stage - just tacky. Oscars are not above the tabloids obviously. Really, Hugh was great and I liked a lot of what they did this year, but the camera work was beyond dreadful.
