OSCAR PREDICTIONS

Only six days left before the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences announces their Oscar nominations. The golden statuette is, for the 85th time, the highest honor any filmmaker could achieve. This year we expect an interesting and eclectic list of contenders, with no clear front-runner. However, the strongest names so far are Steven Spielberg’s Lincoln, Kathryn Bigelow’s Zero Dark Thirty, David O’ Russell’s Silver Linings Playbook and Ben Affleck’s Argo. The ceremony will held 24th February at the Dolby Theater (formerly known as Kodak Theater), while Seth MacFarlane will host it, for the first time. Let the race begin!

Here are our predictions:
