Before I give my predictions on selected categories of next week’s Academy Awards ceremony, I wanted to say thank you to everyone who has read this blog ever since I started it back in September of last year. This blog has been viewed over 900 times since I started it and I could not be happier about that.

No, I’m not stopping the controversy but I am working on another project and am not sure how often I’ll be able to post my controversy. I’m hoping I can continue post here at least once per week and provide my readers with what you enjoy about my writing. Until then, know that I haven’t run out of ideas. In fact, I have about 10 posts in the works, including a long overdue one on Return of the Jedi.

So please enjoy my predictions below and look out for more of my work in the future.
