What, you ask, do the Oscars have to do with our neighborhood or DC? Technically, nothing. But, we’re doing a few postings on the 82nd Annual Academy Awards this Sunday because:
- The Academy Awards are fun.
- Washington, DC, is sometimes referred to as Hollywood on the Potomac.
- Sometimes—not very charitably—DC is referred to as as “Hollywood for ugly people.”
- Kal Penn lives in Borderstan.
So, let’s see how Borderstan readers do in predicting the Best Picture winner. Before casting your vote, be sure to check out what Mary the Borderstan Movie Fan has to say about this year’s 10 nominees (yes, Mary really does live in Borderstan). On Saturday, you will be able to vote for Best Actor and Best Actress here at Borderstan.
Vote for Best Picture below the fold.
