December 2013 Oscar Predictions

Ah, the holidays. If I had been a better planner, I would have had my December predictions posted shortly after the Golden Globe nominations were announced. Instead, it's almost January 2014 and I still haven't done them. Given everything else that I'm working on both here and at my day job, I've scribbled down my new predictions, without commentary, on a piece of paper, which you can see below (an earlier, slightly different version was posted on Facebook/Twitter last week). Let's discuss them in the comments, shall we?

Hmm...interesting predictions.

I'm surprised you have Dallas Buyers Club is the very competitive Original Screenplay but not in the 10 for Best Picture.

I have a better feeling about Dallas Buyers Club for a screenplay nod than I do for Best Picture. In all honesty, it's probably because I can't imagine Saving Mr. Banks being considered one of the best screenplays of the year. But the longer I stared at Dallas Buyers Club in Best Picture in an earlier draft, it just seemed…out of place.

I've never been more stumped by predictions than I have been this year. There's so much competition in virtually every category.
