2012 Magic 8-Ball Oscar Picks

Okay, kids. You know the drill, or else you’re about to learn it. Each year, I present every Oscar nominee to my Magic 8-Ball. The most positive reaction in each category is recorded here.

Silly? Yep. Reliable? Meh. Something worth basing your pool picks on? Hey, it’s not like you’ve seen any of the nominated live action shorts either.

Your other option is to put yourself in the head of an Academy voter — and thanks to the LA Times, we have confirmation that the average voter is a 62-year-old white guy who may not have been involved in the industry for decades. You’ve always suspected it, but you’ve never quite been able to bring yourself to follow that logic for your picks. Why start now?
