Oscar Picks for 2008

It's beginning to look a lot like Oscar time, with everyone abuzz with speculations about what picture, director, actor and actress will be voted the best for 2008.

Well, truthfully, they're more ayawn than abuzz this year. Most of the pictures are dark, which people don't like much, especially in a down economy. And it looks as if "Slumdog Millionaire," the one with a happy ending, will sweep the show. So where's the excitement?

TIME's Richard Corliss makes his picks here. Oh my, if Jon Stewart could see his Best Picture choice! See what you think.
