Oscars 2012: Final Winner Predictions

I’ve only made only two changes* to my original predictions — and really, how could I ever think that War Horse would win anything? — so these are it: My selections for my office Oscar pool. And I am going to win. (At least I hope so. I didn’t win last year, and that was tragic.)

Just a head’s up: If you’re at all going by what I say for your own pool, please note that I am notoriously bad at predicting the sound categories.
