…And the Oscar goes to …

The results are in. Hugo and The Artist did better than we predicted. Here are our selections with the correct ones checked off and the incorrect ones marked with an “x” (in case that wasn’t abundantly obvious). 18 out of 24. That’s 75% right. That would make our effort a solid “C”. We blame the public school system.
