The 2012 Sports Seasons as Oscar Nominees

The 85th Academy Awards Ceremony is this Sunday night, and while all eyes are on Hollywood’s finest, the sports world is experiencing one of its quieter times of the year.   

Not that many people were clamoring for it, but there is an awards show for athletes called the ESPYs, aptly named by ESPN, that has been around for 20 years now.  The ESPYs follow a similar awards template recognizing the best male and female individuals and teams, as one might expect. 

The majority of sports from 2012 have concluded their seasons, but the ESPYs are not for another five months.  

In anticipation of this Sunday’s Academy Awards ceremony, and while we have a lull in the sports world, let’s have some fun comparing the best athletic performances of 2012 with this year’s Oscar nominees.  I’ll stick with the major categories for convenience.     

As a bonus, I will even make Oscar predictions.  Here we go.
