It's Oscar Sunday! There are lots of sites where you can vote for who you think will win. Here, we let you vote for what you think the ratings for the telecast will be. This year's nominees are a blend of studio hits and critically acclaimed independent films. First time host Seth MacFarlane could be appealing to younger viewers -- though he may turn off Oscar traditionalists. Last year's telecast scored a 11.7 adults 18-49 rating . Two years ago the Oscars earned a 11.8 adults 18-49 rating. So how do you think tonight;s show will fare?  Make your predictions.

    I watched the show, as I do each year, and it was pretty good. McFarlane was a very capable host, fresh and funny, and appropriately irreverent. The Academy needs to be shaken up from time to time, and I think Seth did it with aplomb. The song-and-dance opening segments were charming and well executed. I howled at the Von Trapp segment, which would only mean anything to those who know the Sound of Music. If I was disappointed at any part of the show it was the so-called tribute to the musical genre of the past decade. Highlighting only three films (Chicago, Dreamgirls and Les Mis) did a disservice to other remarkable films such as Sweeney Todd and Mamma Mia. Alas, any show that features Ted (in the cutest tuxedo) is alright with me! I predict over 12 for the overnight #s.
