The 85th Annual Academy Awards Predictions

The Academy Awards are only a few days away and as tradition I have decided to predict the winners. However I must say that this year it seems even more difficult to predict the winners. Usually the winners of the Oscars win Golden Globes, Critics Choice Awards and BAFTAs along the way but this year seems different. I think we will have more shocks and snubs than ever.

The most difficult award to predict is Best Performance by an Actress in a Leading Role this year. The race is between Jessica Chastain, Jennifer Lawrence and Emmanuelle Riva. Not even the various awards that have past can agree on who should take home Oscar gold.

Ben Affleck is also not nominated for Best Achievement in Directing even though he was won most if not all of the major directing awards.

Conspiracies aside, let me tell you who I predict to win at this year's Academy Awards.
