"My Oscars!" - Now With Picture & Mixing!

For the first time in who-knows-how-many-years, I've never been more positive of the Lead & Supporting Actor wins. There Will Be Blood's Picture win will be well-deserved for Anderson; too bad it's the same year No Country for Old Men came out, but they'll deservingly take Director(s). As for the rest, I'm rooting big for No Country for Old Men's Writing, Sweeney's Design noms, & a Chicago upset with Juno's Original Script.
