After weeks of anticipation, the Academy Awards show is finally upon us. At 8 p.m. Eastern Standard Time on Sunday, Oscars will be handed out and speeches will drag on forever. Telling us about what to expect from this year’s show, which will be broadcast on ABC, is Rafer Guzman, Takeaway movie contributor and film critic for Newsday. He gives his predictions on the winners.

Will the host duo of Alec Baldwin and Steve Martin deliver the requisite laughs? Will "Avatar" or "The Hurt Locker" take home this year's biggest little gold man?
