Predictions for the 2013 Academy Awards

The nominees for the 2013 Academy Awards come out tomorrow, and waking up early to hear them will be yours truly.

Unlike the mediocre set of films last year, the past year has proven to impress me in terms of cinema. So without further ado, here are my predictions for the Academy Award nominations.

Note: I haven’t seen all of the films yet and this is all based on nominations that I have seen.  This is also a very sporadic list. Though, I have been invited to catch an advance screening of Zero Dark Thirty tomorrow and I am super excited!)
