Oscar Nominations and Predictions

These are the oscar nominations, I’ve listed the awards in importance to me this year, not every year (least-greatest). I have also put my prediction along with some comments for some awards. The winners will be posted the day of or after the oscar ceremony. Enjoy. Oh and if I put one and didn’t comment on it, I probably haven’t seen any of that category and I just chose a familiar or intriguing name/title.  By the way the actual nominees are in no particular order.PS: We’ll miss ya Mr. Ledger. Documentary Short
