Well, I kinda sucked on my Oscar picks again this year. Only 12 out of 24. My personal record is 18 and I have yet to match it. The annoying thing is, I actually called the Crash win, but then I second-guessed myself and crossed it out. I had a sort of suspicion there'd be a Brokeback Mountain backlash, because it'd just been getting too much attention and there were too many parodies and jokes flying around to the point that we were all sick of hearing about it. But then I thought, nah, the Academy will want to show the world how progressive and gay-loving they are by giving an Oscar to BBM. Shows how much I know.

A while back [livejournal.com profile] austin360 mentioned in her blog that I've become an eBay whore. Well, that's not exactly true, but I have recently ventured into the exciting world of eBay for the first time. See, one day while looking at Veronica Mars LJ communities, I stumbled on a little place called [livejournal.com profile] neptune_style. The wonderful people over there (and at a similarly-themed thread on TWOP) spend their free time identifying Veronica's clothes and posting info on where you can buy them. Hey, I thought, I've always liked the way Veronica dresses--lots of casual layers and jeans and hoodies and cute t-shirts--I should check that out. Turns out, a lot of the stuff she wears on the show is pretty common, and once it's out of the stores you can often find it on eBay, brand new with tags, at huge discounts.

So far I've bought two jackets, both from "Nobody Puts Baby in a Corner." This one that she wore during the bathroom scene with Logan ("How much easier would your life be if you were indifferent to me?") and this one that she wore to the cigar shop and was subsequently sniffed by Keith. And both are pretty and awesome and comfy and fit me perfectly! Yay!

Here they are, just a few hours under the wire, my Oscar predictions. I approached it a little differently this year and just went with my first instinct. Usually I'm mad for the Oscars and spend hours researching and reading predictions throughout the blogosphere before formulating my guesses, but this year I'm not so much into it. And I've barely seen any of the nominated films, so I can't even begin to compose a list of ideal noms and winners.

And the Oscar will go to... )

Oscar noms are out! Considering the Oscars are usually my Thing, I'm uncharacteristically blase about them this year. Didn't even know they were coming out today until I went to Yahoo! News this morning.

Overall, the noms are pretty unsurprising. And the Best Picture and Best Director noms are the same, which, like, never happens. The Sorkinverse lover in me is pretty pleased that both Dana Whitaker and Congresswoman Andrea Wyatt are nominated for Oscars, though. Hee!

Taking a page from [livejournal.com profile] carmen_sandiego, here's my Oscar watch list.

Nominees I've yet to see )
