Here's good advice, including this bit of wisdom I think we're all in agreement with this year:
"1. There are no coincidences. The Dark Knight didn't make best picture. Do the math. Bigger isn't better this year. Go for less that's more, like, say Slumdog Millionaire."
As well as this reminder:
"8. Always vote against Meryl Streep. She hasn't won for a long time."
