Oscar Winners Final Predictions

With the Oscars coming up on Sunday evening and everyone making predictions of their own, I have decided to make my predictions as well (for most of the categories). Some were a little harder to decide than others:


Best Picture

Here's how I, personally, rank the 9 nominees:

1. Argo
2. Lincoln
3. Silver Linings Playbook
4. Django Unchained
5. Life of Pi
6. Les Miserables
7. Beasts of the Southern Wild
8. Zero Dark Thirty
9. Amour

Who Will Win: The winner will probably be Argo, but Lincoln could give it a run for its money. It could go either way. The only dark horse, in my opinion, would be Silver Linings Playbook. The other films were great, but knowing these Academy voters, I'm pretty sure none of them will have a chance.

Who Should Win: Argo
