Oscar Night Guess Time--UPDATED w/ Results

I am always woefully uninformed when it comes to picking the winners for the Academy Awards. I almost never see even 25% of the nominated movies prior to the awards ceremony. And the more technical awards are nothing more than guesswork.

This year is no different. But that won't stop me from putting my guesses in public and then maybe spending some time tonight evaluating how I did. Just as a warning, I might flood your social media feeds with Oscar talk this evening.

Note also that I haven't paid much attention to the previous awards shows--which will almost surely dictate who will and won't win tonight. So, it is really all very much a series of guesses.
