Dave’s Oscar Predictions 2013


The awards are coming up, which can mean only one thing. People everywhere will have an uncontrollable urge to read my predictions on which movie will win. However, there is a forewarning that I must divulge to you all now. I refuse to predict who will win on documentaries, short films, and foreign films. Why? Well, it is simple, my young padawans, because I don’t care.  I don’t call a documentary a movie, I call it an informational program, I don’t call a short film a movie, because it’s too short. I do call a foreign film a movie, but I don’t like to read my movies. Have I liked these types of films in the past? Absolutely, there are some truly phenomenal documentaries, short films, and foreign films out there, but none that I can really feel comfortable with reviewing. So for the sake of being objectionable, I will not predict who will win in those departments. Well, without further adieu, I present to you…my predictions.
