Last summer I predicted on this blog that Quentin Tarantino’s Inglorious Basterds would clean house come Oscar time. Had Betcha.com still been up I would have put a wager or two out on it.
Well, it isn’t and it didn’t. Inglorious, which no doubt had the best ending of any move in ’09, was good for only one trophy, that of Christoph Waltz for best supporting actor.
For the record, I also predicted that Avatar would bomb at the box office.
Predicting movie performances may not be my next calling.
