2013 Academy Award Nominations Predictions

So, the Academy Award nominations are coming out tomorrow. I have to say, My fiancee Stephanie and I have seen quite a bit of movies, particularly within the last few months. I think we might have a problem.

Now, I made predictions on whom I thought was going to win the awards last year. This time, I thought that I would make my predictions on who will get nominated.

Now, I do not think I have the right knowledge to predict all of the boring categories, like sound and visual shit, and I obviously will not be predicting the foreign films because I have not seen any this year, obviously. So, I will only be predicting a small chunk of the categories. You will also notice that the nominations that I think will win the award are highlighted in bold and have been starred (and they are in red too).
