          Between red carpet fashion disasters, acceptance speeches that drag on for far too long, and incessant camera cuts to Jack Nicholson's front row smirk (which depending on one's tastes could be a good or bad thing), there are a lot of distracting elements to the Academy Awards each year. Still, it is the films and the people who made them that should really be the prime focus of the ceremony, and in anticipation of this year's Oscars, The Observer and members of the CWRU community at large have predicted the winners in six nomination categories. Although the films nominated cover a broad range of topics - struggling inner-city youth, Jewish soldiers avenging Nazi tormentors, the Iraq War, and an adventure in an airborne house among them - only one will come away with that shiny golden trophy to its name. On Sunday night, the world will find out which it will be.
