And now, the OTHER Oscar pix...
Well, here's my reasoning. When you have something like the Oscars, I defy anyone to correctly pick all the winners. You should get at least two picks... no more than four. I'll stick with two this year: the regular, and my Coen-centric picks, for lack of a better term. Call me, guys! (boo hoo) Maybe I'm crazy, but I see just a friggin' Coen sweep this year. You know why? It was outta respect...
