And the Winner Is…(2014)

I didn’t watch the Oscars. I planned to stream it but somehow it wasn’t available in my location. I ended up hitting the refresh button on IMDB every few minutes just to see who won (up to maybe 350 times over the ceremony if you want a conservative guess). I didn’t expect to do too well for my first year of actually picking the winners but I don’t think I did too badly at . This is in the order as given by IMDB as updated by Category: Winner (my pick).
