87th Annual Academy Awards Predicitions

It is a well known fact that the awards seasons is my favourite season. However every year the films nominated for Academy Awards seem to bore me. Not only are the films boring but so are the actors nominated, except of course for Eddie Redmayne. The Theory of Everything actor will definitely win the academy award this year, I have no doubt about it. Other than that the only other clear cut winner is Boyhood for Best Picture.

The most difficult categories to judge were Best Performance by an Actor in A Supporting Role as well as Best Animated Feature. With Pixar not in the running for an award it is always difficult to judge.

(All nominees in bold are those who are predicted to win.
