(UPDATE: Well, I beat last year’s of 16 but failed to meet my goal of 18. There’s always next year! I’ve noted where I was accurate in my predictions with an asterisk. Any category I got wrong I follow with its winner.)

Well, with the biggest awards show of the year beginning in an hour and a half, it’s about time for me to post my predictions. Last year, I got 16 of the 24 right. This year, I’m aiming for at least 18. If you’re looking for an educated guess for some categories, here’s what I’m putting my money on.
