Sure, Mariano Rivera Was Great, But What Was His Record Predicting The Independent Spirit Awards?

Posted in Baseball, Cinema at 10:19 am by

As tempting as it is to deem a jock with a film degree from Notre Dame a graduate of Advanced Going To The Movies, Cleveland reliever John Axford must at the very least have a keen take on the Academy Awards voting process and the balance of critical acclaim/commercial clout. On Sunday, Axford unveiled his predictions for 18 of 24 Oscar categories and got each of them correct, a result some have likened to a 7 inning perfect game.

As noted above, Axford’s done pretty well in past years, but deserves special praise for nailing such categories as “Best Make Up and Hairstyling” and “Best Costume Design”, both of which, as you already know, are hotly debated at every MLB spring training facility.

    Oh I don’t know, this fine film was made by ND film dept alum Chad Schaffler http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7GDOAuT8H_0
    (on a completely unrelated note, he was also in a band I once saw play in a basement with Silkworm)
