Your Oscar ballot cheat sheet: We predict all the winners

February 26, 2012 | 10:00 am

Maybe you've been busy this week and haven't had time to burrow into our in-depth, category-by-category Oscar predictions, like those found here and here and over here. (Want more? Keep on ramblin' through 24 Frames ...) Or maybe you've just had a hectic year and haven't had a chance to catch all the nominees, but you'd still like to make a respectable showing in your Oscar pool. Dear reader, we're here to help. Just remember: These predictions are for entertainment purposes only. The Gold Standard assumes no liability for the loss of any money, particulary if those losses occur due to inaccuracies in those darn short film categories, which (c'mon!) are almost impossible to predict even if you've seen all the nominees. Good luck!
