Sorry, I care way too much about this stuff. From the looks of it, Helen Mirren is a lock for Best Actress. Like anybody else shouldn’t even bother. She’s winning everything and if Arby’s gave a Best Actress award they would give it to her. I think Forest Whitaker is also pretty much locked. As for Best Picture, United 93?!!!! WTF!?
