I'm going to do awful. I voted the day we started the contest back in the middle of January. So much of the consensus has changed in the past month.

Finally voted today. Spoiler alert! Anne is going to win for Best Supporting Actress.

Also, on a random not, I learned today that I've been spelling Seth MacFarLANE's name wrong for years now.

While I've entered unfortunately this year Im unable to watch the show live and hang out in the chat room like I have done the past 2 years. Damn work throwing a spanner into my annual mental health day. Hopefully I don't go to bad, but I expect it will be a terrible result from me this year.

Ugh Brave won over Wreck-it Ralph. Pixar did not deserve to win this time.

Yeah. Pixar definitely won on their name this time. I feel bad for the Disney folks. I thought they had it this time.

Ah bugger. Just found some spare time to check the current winners and seeing Brave win has spoiled my day. That is definitely a win for the name and not the actual product. I now know what it must feel like for someone to see The Amazing Race win every time at the Emmys. Oh well I will have to keep my fingers crossed that Frozen is excellent and helps Disney get their first win. Which I suppose it might be nice for that movie to achieve it since it's a musical fairytale - Disney's legacy (so to speak)

But yay to Paperman winning. At least something connected to Ralph got an Oscar LOL

While I think Ralph deserved it too, not sure this was simply a name thing for Pixar. They also won most of the guild and other awards too.
