Awards season is upon us. Crushingly so. You can barely get through a commercial block without "nominated for..." bursting your eardrums. Access Hollywood, Extra, and all the rest are a-twitter with last minute posturing. Celebs are getting facials, massages, and gifts galore. And we want in.
We'll be covering the event all Sunday with fashion disasters, award victors, and other juicy tidbits.
Until then, we've channeled our inner Roger Ebert - picking our favorites and adding a dash of WWTHFPD. Now it's your turn. Who do you think should win? Jump into the prognostication game.
