Oscar Predictions

As a year of cinema finally comes to a close tonight with the Academy Awards I thought I’d share my predictions for tonights show. Although there are a few missing due to not having seen many (or any) of the films in particular categories like Best Documentary I’ve done my best to predict them all. For each category you will see I’ve put I’d Like and I’m Expecting for my predictions, just to see how much money I would have won, had I actually bet on any this year. The only exception for this is Foreign Film, which the only one I’ve seen is Amour and there’s no way on earth I’d LIKE that to gain any recognition from the Academy.

Anyway rambling over, Scroll down and read for yourself and come back in the early hours of the morning to see the outcome! Also for the tweeters, feel free to follow me @movie_mad to see a live tweet along to the ceremony. Hopefully this year they won’t ban me for supposed Spam just as best Actress, Actor and Film are being announced…
