I'd like to thank the Academy....

My family likes to watch the Academy Awards with ballots in hand. We mark who or what we think will win in each category and then see how well our predictions match the actual results. The winner - the family member who gets the most right - doesn't get anything, except a fleeting feeling of superiority.

Last year I didn't do very well, but this year... I won! I got to feel that sense of superiority - even though I was the only one who actually stayed up to watch the whole show. At least my dog was duly impressed when I informed him of my superiority before I went upstairs to sleep.

I would like to thank everyone who made this possible.

Ha! Enjoy your moment!
I had to bail on them too. I've seen so few of the movies it was hard to get into it.

Hi adrienne!

The only reason I stayed up till the end was because I was winning our little game : )

What one won't do to feel superior.
