In all honesty, I don't think I did too bad. And I got the Constant Gardener/Mierelles picks right, which were no easy gets. Wonky lead/supporting categorizations conspired to get me an 0-for-5 on Supporting Actress, though I did correctly predict Maria Bello, Rachel Weisz, and Scarlet Johansson. Just in different categories. Whatever, you don't know me!

You didn't do bad at all! Good going on the Constant Gardener, as well as foreseeing a nod for Linney in Lead Comedy. How the hell did you do that?
