Oscar picks, more Sci-Tech Awards coverage

Gurus O' Gold has compiled Oscar picks from thirteen critics. Will the wisdom of crowds be right on March 5th?<

And the LA Times' Oscarbeat has more coverage of last Saturday night's Scientific and Technical Awards. Steve Pond writes:

    The Sci-Tech Awards are a reality check, an evening that points out that a filmmaker's imagination is only as impressive as the expertise of the brainiacs who supply the means to realize those visions.

    "The heart of what all of us do," said Gary Thieltges, who won an academy certificate for a remotely-operated camera head, "is take that spark that happens in the brain of a cinematographer or director, and give them the tools to put that on the screen."
