With the Oscars exactly one week away, people are starting to look at all of the nominees and make their professional picks. Most people who pick have seen most, if not all of the nominated films; some people pick just for fun, even if they haven’t gotten the chance to see the nominees (such as myself — yay me!); and some folks just have a fail-proof formula for figuring out the winners, even without a clue in the world as to how good they are.
Take for example, the host of the popular political comedy show The Colbert Report, Stephen Colbert. He’s well-known as the former correspondent to The Daily Show who branched off with his own popular show and for his very strong personality and hilarious outbursts on just about every hot topic going on. Mr. Colbert is one of those who have figured out his own little formula to identifying those who will take home the highly-coveted top prizes at the Academy Awards each year. He calls his formula The DaColbert Code.

Basically, the host takes last year’s winner and, by using name/title association and a dash of that Kevin Bacon game, he deciphers the winners to near surgical precision!
