The Oscars 2013: Picking Winners, Kid Style

A big thanks to Disney for sponsoring this campaign. Click here to see more of the discussion.

Confession time: I’m kinda an awards show nerd. The glitz, the glamor, the way shiny celebs waddle around in those skin tight mermaid dresses. I eat that stuff up!

In college, Oscars® night was spent in my apartment, surrounded by girlfriends, bottles of wine, and a tally list. Naturally, we’d seen every single film and researched our picks. (Bill Murray, Lost in Translation. Sigh, 2003, the year he was robbed!)

Once I got married and started having babies, I watched the event solo, since my husband barely cared that Renee Zellweger wore another unfortunate Carolina Herrera gown OMG AGAIN.

Now viewing is less lonely, what with twitter, facebook, Google+ and even an Official Oscar App that give you backstage access to the whole event.

What’s that, Andy? You don’t care what still-hot Christopher Plummer said backstage after winning for “The Beginners?” That’s ok, because the internet cares, and they think the Oscars are awesome.

Even my kids are starting to get into the act with some of their hands-down Oscar winning picks.

Wyatt Lincoln

Best Picture: “Lincoln, I heard he kills vampires.” -Wyatt, 5

 Jude Cooper

Actor in a Leading Role: “Bradley Cooper (Silver Linings Playbook), my mom really likes him and he wears garbage bags for fun.” -Jude, 6

Gigi Katniss

Actress in a Leading Role: “Jennifer Lawrence (Silver Linings Playbook), Katniss is my favorite girl pick.” -Gigi, almost 4

I’ve trained them well, who are your picks this year?
