  1. How can you decide if you have not seen the movies? This is why i never watch the show plus the never vote for my fav movies anyway

  2. looks like you only got four right, these seemed pretty easy to predict this year. I was suprised Mickey did not win thought he was a lock. Sean Penn is gross and a loud mouth. That is probably why he won in Hollywood and no where else.
