My final 2011 Oscar predictions…

Moment of truth. The Oscars are tomorrow night. Earlier I posted my predictions, but I have since changed my mind on a few. I have also decided to at the very least view clips from the less accessible categories. Namely, the shorts. And so, without further ado here are my FINAL predictions for the 2011 Academy Awards.
