FINAL Predictions (for 2008 Oscar Season)

UPDATE: Foreign prediction changed from The Class to Departures.

With less than 48 hours to go until the big event, it's time to go on the record:

Best Original Screenplay

Best Costume Design

Best Original Score

Best Original Song

Best Sound Mixing

Best Animated Short

*Note: Those sound categories have been driving me up the wall! I'm sure that both of them will be won by either Slumdog (most loved of the nominees), Dark Knight (most typical winner of the nominees), or WALL-E (most deserving of the nominees). I'm currently going with Dark Knight, but that could change right up until the start of the show.
