I'd like to thank the Academy...

In a first for my long but undistinguished career of Oscar pools, I actually won this year. I got 19 out of 24, handily beating my nearest competitor at 14 out of 20. Fifteen dollars was mine! It was all thanks to hitching myself to the Pan's Labyrinth and The Departed trains, and also some lucky guesses in the shorts--I figured a flick about Israel and Palestine was a sure bet, as was something about blood and China.

I know, I know. I totally could have done it too, nobody was paying attention to it at the end of the night.

Well, if you are ever in LA, I'll tell you where the house is, and give you instructions on how to break in.
