My Oscar Predictions

I love this time of year, and though I find it difficult to do, I love making Oscar predictions. I haven’t taken a stab at every category. I just picked 10 that I felt I could make a semi-educated guess at.  I’ll admit I haven’t seen all of these movies, but I’m so glad that I’ve seen most of them. Some of my guesses are based on whispers and speculations I’ve picked up on. What are your predictions?

This is the toughest year for me for this category. Usually I can tell right away. If The Lego Movie was in this list I would say it would win. Why it’s not is beyond me. I’ve actually seen none of these nominees, but I’m going to go with The Tale of Princess Kaguya as both SHOULD and WILL.
