I’m kicking myself a little for not blogging my predictions for last night’s Oscars. Or the Baftas before that.
Because I got it dead right. Not only did I know Slumdog would win best film – I blogged it so on January 16th – but last night I also decided (in my head) the film would win eight awards.
Which it did.
So here’s another prediction, one that I’m not so keen to make.
On January 31st I suggested to a friend that Man United had peaked too early in the season and would suffer a big dip in form before the prizes are given out in the early summer. I was heartily laughed at. Well, I think the dip starts tomorrow against Inter Milan.
I hope I’m only good at predicting film award ceremonies.
