Predicting the Oscars has become some what of a sport. From office pools, to casual bets, to people actually placing money in Vegas. And when money and/or pride is at stake, people want ways- any ways- that they can predict what the future will hold and who really will be taking home Oscar at the Academy Awards 2011.
And it’s just not Roger Ebert or E! Entertainment giving their two cents on the winner, there is slew of interesting and unique places where predictions are being made, and some…the kids might actually enjoy checking out (even though they’ve probably only seen one of the nominated films – Toy Story 3).
Here are the 5 wackiest, weirdest and most unusual places to get your Oscar predictions:
1) Academy Award Predictions from Heidi the Cross-Eyed Opossum
When trying to figure out who will win the Oscars what better being to ask that an opossum. And not just any opossum, but a cross eyed one. Check out the Academy Award predictions from Heidi the Cross-eyed opossum right here.
2) Oscar the Grouch –
Who better than Oscar the grouch from Sesame Street to give his predictions on who will win the Academy Awards. In this clip by those Sesame Steeters, Oscar gives his own trashy spin on it like “Colin Filth” and other garbage like puns.
3) Predicting the Oscars with Food Preferences:

4) Animated Critics Pick Their Favorites:
For those tired of real live human critics, the animated critics may be just the ticket.
5) Professional Psychic
With guessing the future as their bread and butter, a professional psychic is a natural place to go for what will happen on Oscar night. Here are the ones that the psychics at Psychic reSource think will win.
Or best of all, get a list of the movies and ask your kid to predict what will win? But I bet they’ll just have one opinion. Best movie would be Toy Story 3 or course!
