2013 Oscar Nominations: Best Picture and Final Predictions

amy adams american hustle predix

This is it. Just two days and we’ll know what the nominees are. Here’s a list of predictions in most categories (the “short” categories are missing, but I am so unfamiliar with the possible nominees there, there wouldn’t be any sense in me predicting them). As far as Best Picture goes, for the past two years we’ve had this weird nominating process in which we can have anywhere from five to ten nominees. So far we’ve always had nine, so I guess smart money lies in keeping to that prediction until we’re proven otherwise.
