19 out of 24 on Oscar night

Take that Nate Silver. I correctly predicted (or guessed) every category except lead actor (although when Mickey Rourke showed up with an open collar, I was rooting for him to lose), foreign language film, live action short, animated short, and sound mixing.

I tied with a co-worker and then LOST on the tie-breaker question (when would the show end) which totally sucks.

It is worth noting that by award time I had seen (in no particular order): Slumdog Millionaire, Wall-E, Dark Knight, Doubt, Frost/Nixon, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, Milk, The Reader, In Bruges, Rachel Getting Married, Iron Man, The Visitor, The Wrestler, and Tropic Thunder. This is a notable improvement over recent years when I'd seen, like 2 movies in the theaters before Oscar time.
