Oscar Predictions

The night is here!  I'll be live tweeting my thoughts, so feel free to follow along (@marielmohns) on Twitter. [Or avoid my social media feeds if you don't want to be spoiled/spammed, hah!] It should be an interesting show, and I'm really intrigued to see how Seth MacFarlane does as a host (can't be any worse than the Hathaway/Franco fiasco).

For the first time, I was able to see all 9 of the nominated best pictures plus a few others that have nominations in other categories.  There are only 3 categories that I haven't seen ANY of the nominees, so I won't be voting on those.  I've listed out the "big" categories with my predicted winner in bold, and you can see a full list of nominees here.


Without further ado, here are my predictions:
