It's Oscar time again and, after a one year absence, we are back in the game.
We here at the 'Geek figure we can guess just as well as anyone else, so why not give it a try. So, beginning tomorrow, our Geeks-pert panel will be giving you their sage picks for the big five.
What panel you ask? So glad you did.
This year's pickers include Chris, John, Hunter and myself from Team GonzoGeek. We've decided, for reasons that remain unclear to me, to give Rey Swanko a forum for his views. You have been warned. In addition to those five, we'll also have picks from David Cantu from Cinema Deviant as well as an actual, published movie critic, Randall Yelverton.
We had also negotiated to have Matt's copy of WrestleMania 2000 give us its special perspective on the proceedings and then, last night, tragedy struck. Last night, at 7:13 PM, I received this from Matt:
A sad day in Gonzo history: pour one out for
Wrestlemania 2000. The N64 came out of the closet this morning after a long
hiatus and just wouldn't send a signal to the TV no matter what I tried.
Subsequent efforts to find a replacement part today have proved fruitless.
So, while the picks were supposed to start today, we are going to observe a reasonable mourning period for our fallen comrade and I'm going to enlist my copy of WWE 13 to see if it can be used to fill the void.
The picks begin tomorrow. Tune in won't you.
Until then, this one goes out to you, Matt's Copy of WrestleMania 2000.
