So how did The Cricket do with his Oscar predictions?
Not too bad, but not great, either.
The Cricket made 16 correct predictions out of the 24 categories.
Where The Cricket failed was in underestimating the Academy's love for "Django Unchained," missing both Christoph Waltz' supporting-actor win and Quentin Tarantino's original screenplay victory. He also scored 3-for-6 in the specialty and short-film categories.
Correct predictions: Picture, Actor, Actress, Supporting Actress, Adapted Screenplay, Documentary Feature, Foreign-Language Film, Cinematography, Costume Design, Music - Original Score, Music - Original Song, Film Editing, Makeup and Hairstyling, Sound Mixing, Visual Effects.
Incorrect predictions: Supporting Actor, Director, Original Screenplay, Animated Feature, Documentary Short, Live-Action Short, Production Design, Sound Editing.
