Oscar...

...is on his way!

The time has come for me to post my hopes and expectations for the 77th Annual Academy Awards. Choices were difficult this year, as there seems to be no clear frontrunner or award sweeper (for details, see 2002's Chicago and 2003's Return of the King). So without further ado...
