Oscar Predictions

Well the Oscars are coming up. I realized that I haven't seen any of the movies in the major categories so it's hard to properly predict. But based on the Golden Globes and SAG Awards, here are my guesses for the major categories:

Best Picture: The Social Network won the Golden Globes but I suspect it will be a good night for The King's Speech so I will vote for them

Best Actor: Colin Firth, too easy

Best Actress: Natalie Portman, too easy. Seems like only yesterday she was in The Professional with Jean Reno. That was an awesome movie

Best Director: It's between David Fincher for The Social Network and Tom Hooper for The King's Speech. Let's go with Facebook guy

Best Supporting Actor: Christian Bale in a lock

Best Supporting Actress: I have no idea. There are two actresses nominated for The Fighter and Helena Bonham Carter for The King's Speech. I'll go with Melissa Leo for The Fighter

That's all for now.

Signs You've Been a Floor Manager for Too Long

Sorry I haven't posted in so long, but since people have been asking what's happened to my blog, here is a bit of humor only because #1 happened to me yesterday. These are signs that you've been in the casino industry for too long.

#1 You sign a personal cheque at home with your signature.... and GPEB number
#2 You "wash your hands" before you wipe your face or touch your hair.... at home
#3 You're at Safeway and when the cashier gives you your change you wait for him or her to put it on the counter because you can't take money from her hand
#4 You answer your cell phone "River Rock Casino"
#5 You drop something at home and yell "Pit".
