Final 2010 Oscar Prediction Charts

Below, as the title suggests, you will find my final Oscar predictions for the 2010 Academy Awards. Like most other prognosticators, I will reserve the right to make any changes between now and Sunday, but I doubt there will be any. The more I linger over some of these categories, the more I begin to doubt my choice, and everything just goes downhill from there.


Take a look at my predictions, and feel free to share your picks as well. If you have made predictions on your own blog, don't hesitate to link up in the comments section. You can read my analysis of the main categories over at the Your Industry Insider website -- a great resource for anyone interested in the world of entertainment -- by clicking here.
