December Oscar Predictions

Wanted to get these in before the National Board of Review announces their winners, therefore starting to round up the eventual Oscar nominees. However, it seems like the best picture category is down to the movie about the creation of the site that would bring us Farmville versus the royalty porn, with the toys possibly sneaking in (which I’m hoping will happen). The main change is that I don’t think The Way Back will be nominated for anything since the studio backing it up doesn’t have to money to put up a proper campaign for it. But things may change

My next predictions will come the day before the actual nominations annoucement

Here they are:

Note: The ★ represent those who I think will win. Obviously, my mind is likely to change, and I’m choosing some of this from the heart, so…
