  • Michael

    Hi Nell,
    I was wondering who do you think will win Best Picture and who do you want to win.

    Great question, Michael! I think my first choice for Best Picture would be “Frost/Nixon.” I am guessing the winner might be “Slumdog Millionaire” but I don’t think I’d be surprised if any of the nominees won!
