Add to Technorati FavoritesAnd the Oscar goes to…




Here are my 100% correct Oscar predictions. :) There’s no way I could go wrong with these. :D

Some notes:
- the ranking is based on the chances to get nominated and not on the chance to win (for example: DiCaprio – he will have a tough time getting nominated, BUT if he does he could win).
- what’s marked with blue is the potential winner of that category, if that is the exact line-up.
- I’m also posting my old predictions for the main categories, from May 1st, 2012 & August 15th (predicted winners from back then, in bold).
- I take pride in having Zero Dark Thirty & K. Bigelow always on my nominations list. I believed in this film when most people didn’t.

There goes nothing:

Denzel being left out is quite a scandalous prediction.

But I do hope Joaquin doesn't get snubbed. And Nicole. And I hope Marion's spot is as secure as I think it is.

Glad to see you back. :)
