Yes, we know that trying to forecast anything about the future — the weather, the outcome of an election, where hemlines will end up — is foolhardy and fraught with peril. Take these with several grains of a salt, and perhaps a margarita, too.

Judd Apatow— By year’s end, all big-screen comedies will be either written, directed or produced by the “Knocked Up” mastermind (just check out his upcoming projects on IMDb.com if you think we’re kidding).

Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie— Third World countries aren’t the only place where children need rescuing. The compassionate couple will adopt the baby of Jamie Lynn Spears.

Writers— By summer, Hollywood execs will figure out a way to get by without them. Whether through computer automation or monkeys who will eventually type Shakespeare-quality work, we’re not sure. Television, meanwhile, will be completely given over to reality programming.

Miley Cyrus— The “Hannah Montana” star of screen and stage will retire. She’s had such a successful career for so long now; there are no more mountains to climb.

Facebook— The social networking site will completely replace human interaction as it’s been practiced for millennia. The technology is still under development, but Facebook may even be able to give you a tan.
