I'm a little over 2013. Actress is locked. The Best Supporting Actor and Best Actor categories were so good this year and yet there hasn't been any competition in each. The supporting actress winner will either enrage me or make me go "eh". This awards season has been lacking in excitement.

Lacking in excitement??

I think it had enough. :) The problem was - it's too long. needs to cut 2 weeks.

I've actually changed my O.Screenplay prediction, from Her to AH. we'll see.
