The Academy Awards are known as the female-version of the Superbowl (though, I personally enjoy the Grammys better). This year, they will be held on Sunday, March 7th.

Hmm...I'm going to go with Avatar winning best picture, Clooney winning leading actor, and Bullock winning leading actress.

Who are your picks to win an Oscar?
