No guarantees on Chuck’s picks, of course. What we can say is that most years Chuck does pretty good with his picks. Last year, out of the 24 categories, he picked 21 correctly. The only ones he missed were Best Director (Chuck picked “Gravity’s” Alfonso Cuaron on that one), Best Animated Short Film and Best Live Action Short Film.
