Whew. That took me forever this year. Apologies. Here's the index of predictions with links to more specific information for the categories themselves. It's basically my vague hunches about the films and the year to come, an unholy brew of wishful thinking, pessimism, and predictive knowledge of Oscar voting biases. I'll revise next month and fine tune. Repeat cycle. Eventually we'll reach the precursors and then the Kodak theater. It's an endless loop, like waking up in the morning and going to sleep at night.
Avatar, The Lovely Bones and Nine are in the lead with 7 predicted nominations each. How'd that happen? I'm not that bullish on Nine's Oscar chances??? The Human Factor, An Education, Shutter Island and even The Wolf Man and Terminator Salvation have things to celebrate within this first round of crystal balling. Now that you're looking at the whole thing, what stands out for you? And what's your biggest hunch about the Oscar season to come?
