Oscars 2015: Complete List of Nominees & My Predictions

If you follow my blog you may remember that I put together this list when the Grammys were happening. I am horrible at predictions but I always find it fun to see how many I get wrong, and how many I get right. Now, I got most of them wrong for the Grammys. For the Oscars though? I will probably get all of them wrong. I have seen most of the movies, but I also watch and follow all of the other awards, so I like to think I know a pattern when I see one.

So here is the deal, bold is who I think is going to win, and italics are who I would love to see win! So yeah, I am giving myself basically two guesses per section, I may get both guesses wrong though knowing my past.

I also did remove catagories that I don’t know anything about, I figured that was only fair.
