It's Oscar Night, People. Look Alive.

Have you heard the Oscars are tonight? There's a chance you may have. As you may have heard on my Twitter, I'll be live-blogging the show tonight over at NPR's Monkey See, along with my former TWoP cohorts Linda Holmes and Sarah Bunting. It's going to be fun -- come on over! Party starts at 7:30.

In the meantime, you know I can't miss the opportunity to be right, so here are my predictions for tonight's awards. Don't get excited, I'm not going out on too many limbs (seems like we're fixing for a fairly predictable night, trophy-wise):

You know, this is what I get for backing off an Inception sweep in the Sound categories just because it didn't seem like it'd win four awards. One category at a time, Reid!
