Presidential Candidates' Oscar Picks (PHOTOS)

Posted: Updated:

The Oscars and the GOP presidential race have a lot in common: There have been a few surprises, but for the most part, everyone knows who the winners will be. But we assume that like most Republicans, known for their effusive love of Hollywood, the current crop of candidates will drop everything tonight to take a vested interest in the Academy Awards

But so far, the candidates have remained silent on their picks. A little too silent. Luckily for them, we made them up so they don't have to take time out of their busy schedules of lambasting birth control to choose whether George Clooney or that French guy will win big. Based on what we know about the candidates, we filled out their Oscar ballots for them.
