The Babbler Press 2013 Oscars Picks

And the winners are . . . .

The Oscars are a big deal to some and just another awards show to others. To the Babbler it’s kind of a big deal. So watched the movies that mattered. It wasn’t a hard task because we like films. The only drawback was watching Les Misérables. Too many close ups and raw singing for us, which was a bummer because the book was so great. Below is who we think may win and who we would like to see cry and give awkward speeches for that gold little man. Can any one say Hushpuppy.

One thought on “The Babbler Press 2013 Oscars Picks

  1. Cool post – consider yourself followed – agree with most of your predictions but think/hope that the Oscar may be heading for Emmanuelle Riva for Amour after she won the BAFTA and has a bit of momentum at the moment
