Final Oscar Nomination Prediction

So, tomorrow, bright and early, the Oscar nomination come out. I am quite looking forward to them this year, as I think with 10 nominees, we are going to get an interesting mixture of films. Below, I make my final Oscar Predictions before the nominations are announced, along with some I think is just missing the cut. Check back tomorrow to see how I did. I have a feeling that this year, I won't do very well. I have a feeling we're going to see a shocker or two in the Best Picture category, and perhaps some surprises for Actor, Supporting Actor and Supporting Actress. But, at this point, this is how I see it shaking down.
