We've done this before, you know the drill. "Will Win" is who I think will win the Oscar; "Should Win" is who I think should win (i.e., of the nominees, the one I'd vote for); "If This Wins, I'll Be Angry" is pretty self-explanatory1; and "Where's...?" is someone I think was gravely passed over.

1When Crash won Best Picture last year after I named it my "Angry" pick, I threw--in public--what can only be described as a "temper tantrum".

2The above-mentioned temper tantrum, however, will be as the demurest flap of the most delicate of butterfly's wings compared to the HURRICANE OF FURY I will unleash if Babel wins this year. So be warned.
