2013 Oscar Confidence List

 
It's that time once again folks and I'm getting my picks listed just under the wire.  I did surprisingly well last year therefore I have nowhere to go but down (I scored a 238 getting my entire top ten right).  I've missed seeing a lot of the top contenders this year, but did manage to watch all but one of the documentaries up (didn't see The Gatekeepers) and I watched all of the animated shorts for the first time ever, so I was able to make an intelligent decision on that category for once.  Not convinced it will help.  
Ah well, cheers and happy Oscars.

Oh- this year I decided to make my official pick and score it in order, but also next to it will be my personal pick, but I am not doing the 300 score thing for my personal picks.  So this year my heart and my head are going to duke it out.  Should be interesting.  (for two categories when it came to my personal choice, I had a tie between two movies, so if either happens to be the winner, I will score myself 1/2 a point).

This is how scoring works:(I'm doing the Movie BS scoring again this year- lots of fun)
1) you decide who you think is going to win in each category
2) you put them in order of how confident you are of your picks in each category.
There are 24 categories, so for example, if I get my first one right (or the one I feel most confident I will get right-) I get 24 points for that one. For the second on my list, I would get 23 points and so on. If you get them all right, it will add up to exactly 300 points.

Funny calling this a confidence list- I feel decidedly unconfident about the lot.  Unusually so.

I had originally put Christoph Waltz for BOTH picks and took him off BOTH during the final read through. LAMESAUCE.

Just so you all know.
