Oscar Money Making Machine

Behind only the Super Bowl and the NCAA Men’s Basketball tournament, the Academy Awards generates the highest amount of illegal wagers in the country. So, if there is money to be won, then “expert” opinions are in order.

I will acknowledge up front I have not actually seen all of these movies. Heck, I have not seen a third of these movies. But seriously, neither have the actual voters. I did take the time to watch the trailers, read Variety, and check out the reviews on Rotten Tomatoes, therefore, I think I am not being boastful when I declare myself an official Oscarologist.

So if you want to take home your co-workers’ $10 contributions to the Oscar pool, then follow this picks.
