Academy Awards Picks

See how many predictions we got right...and wrong

UPDATE: After live-tweeting the Oscars last night, we wanted to share how well we did with our predictions. Below is G Philly‘s original post with our predictions – and actual winners where applicable. (We scored only 10 out of 23. Better luck next time.)

Here are our picks for the 83rd Academy Awards on Sunday hosted by James Franco and Ann Hathaway. G Philly will be live-tweeting from Stir starting at 8 p.m.
