An Award Called Oscar… (Our Predictions)

HELLO, WORLD!

Welcome to the first official post for One Flew Over the Critics’ List. After months of talking and figuring things out, deciding which way we wanted to take the blog, and both leading grown-up lives, we have finally decided to get things in gear.

And what a better way to start things off than with the best award ceremony of the year occurring tomorrow night. Oscar night! Where actors become Academy Award-recognized actors and infotainment outlets focus on the little things – how the host did, who wore it best, should the winners have won.

We’ll try to update you throughout the night tomorrow, maybe with a live blog (?), but for now we decided to take our first steps by giving you our predictions for tomorrow night. Who will win? Who knows. But slap bets are being considered for the winner of the Brandon/Andy Oscar-off.
