2011 Oscar winners

Last night the Oscar ceremony took place, with The King's Speech being the great winner.

This post is just to follow our 2011 predictions, to notice that we were right in 3 out of the 7 categories.

It's true that we guessed the easy ones, like the lead actor and actress and the animated movie, but, in the end, the statistics matters: we're getting better compared to last year, when we guessed only 2 out of 7 :)))

Already looking for the next year's ceremony.

Until then, the next US event to be followed: the NBA play-offs.

They advertise themselves as a "love shop" and not a sex shop, but they are in the same business. It was probably out of the need for differentiation in such a competitive market.
