Oscar 2006 Predictions

Based on the book I am reading, The Wisdom of Crowds, I believe that the Hollywood Stock Exchange will predict every single Oscar winner accurately.

Best Picture – Brokeback Mountain
Best Director – Ang Lee for Brokeback Mountain
Best Actor – Philip Seymour Hoffman in Capote
Best Actress – Reese Witherspoon in Walk the Line
Best Supporting Actor – George Clooney in Syriana
Best Supporting Actress – Rachel Weisz in The Constant Gardener
Best Original Screenplay – Crash
Best Adapted Screenplay – Brokeback Mountain
Most Awards Total – Brokeback Mountain

These are the winners. Using markets like this can actually predict a wide variety of things. It is scary if used properly.

I just made a bet with Katie. If I am 100% right, I win completely mastery of the universe for a week. If ANY ONE of my picks are wrong, I have to do the dishes for a week.

ALL the dishes. The kitchen will be left sparkling clean. No dishes left on the table. Counters wiped. I’ll take care of the coffee pot and the sweeping honey. 🙂

Whatya think?
