Tis The Season

// January 23rd, 2007 // Moviesandtv, Obsessions

Oscar Season is launching off tonight at around midnight with the announcement of the nominations for the 79th Annual Academy Awards®. I’m excited as always, especially since Ellen will be hosting this year – a long overdue honour in my opinion! I hope you are all mentally preparing for the upcoming annual Oscar Bash© at Jems HQ.

Anyway I thought I’d put my predictions for the nominations out again this year, just for fun. Italicised ones are my early winner predictions. Feel free to leave your predictions in the comments!
