Oscars 2016: How’d I do? So-so …

This was not one of my better years predicting the Oscars. While I had most of the biggies correct (Director, Adapted and Original Screenplay, Actor, Actress, Supporting Actress), I was off on two biggies: Picture and Supporting Actor. I have to say, Sly losing is the bummer of the night for me … Mainly because I could not envision a scenario in which George Miller would win Director and “Fury Road” would take Best Picture.

In any event, I’m glad I went to bed after “Mad Max”’s early run. It was fun to turn off the TV and ponder whether Furiosa and company could go all the way …

One interesting note. While I finished 14 of 24 in what I felt would win, I was 12 of 24 in what I actually wanted to win. Honestly, 50 percent of my favorites winning is pretty darn good.
