Heidi The Adorable Cross-Eyed Opossum Correctly Predicts Oscar Winners

By Robert Paul Reyes

"Heidi, Germany`s cross-eyed celebrity opossum, came up one pick short of perfectly predicting top awards at the Oscars, incorrectly tipping `127 Hours` to win best picture, which instead went to `The King`s Speech.


Heidi became a star in Germany when her photo appeared in the mass-circulation newspaper Bild in December, but her international following has blossomed, including a Facebook following of about 320,000.

Heidi predicted winners from her enclosure in Leipzig by placing her paw on an Oscar statuette with the actor`s photo."


Heidi, the cross-eyed opossum, is the only European celeb who can compete with American stars the likes of Angelina Jolie, Lady Gaga and Britney Spears.

Heidi knows a thing or two about Hollywood, she came only one pick short of perfectly predicting the top awards at the Oscars.

I predict that a movie starring an animated version of Heidi would be a huge smash.

Germany also gave us Octopus Paul who correctly predicted the outcome of last year`s World Cup matches. Unfortunately, Paul has passed away. Let`s hope that Heidi lives a long and happy life.
