And The Oscar Goes To…

The Academy Awards, airing Sunday March 7, 2010, as we know it, is the ultimate award granted to the recipient for being the best in film. Although the list of nominees and winners are pretty predictable for 2010, I wanted to voice my opinion and cast my WISH LIST of winners for giving their best. I want to state here that none of the actor’s performances or films listed for 2010 are comparable nor measurable against each other or one another; nonetheless, we must do what we have to do to choose the best from the best. So with that said, the list is as follows:
