It’s Oscar time: Roger Ebert's preview and picks

I can't remember a year when it seemed easier to predict the Oscars. Those words may come back to haunt me, but there you have it. Of the top eight categories, seven look like sure things. The only dicey one is best picture, and although "Avatar" may roll in on its record-breaking profits, I think it's a win for "The Hurt Locker."

W.E. Gutman: Whiners, killjoys and curmudgeons

"No one likes the bearer of bad news." - Antigone, Sophocles (496-406 B.C.)
