Kelly picked 11 of 12 in the Oscar Pool, just edging out Scott M, gigi, and me, who all picked 10 of 12. I don't know you, Scott or gigi, but good job. Kelly, congrats and nicely done. Switching to the “who I think will win” strategy over the “who I want to win” strategy made all the difference.
The show was paced alright, but had few surprises. Chris Rock was the funniest host in some time — loved the Bush as a Gap employee bit and all the specific barbs he tossed at the stars. Sideways and Eternal Sunshine got the writing awards they deserved. Clint and Co. cleaned up when it counted for what I agreed was the Best Picture of 2005, Million Dollar Baby.
Kelly, congratulations again, I'm waiting on this week's poll question from you.
