Here It Goes: The 2013 Oscar Nominations Predictions!

Tomorrow is the big day: Oscar nominations will be announced early in the morning, and the most prestigious award in Hollywood will lower the field incredibly.  There are so much politics to Oscar nominations, from how much the Academy loved the film, the specific Guild voting, what’s hot/not, etc.  It’s almost a guarantee to look foolish predicting Oscar nominations, but I shall look foolish.  Here are my predictions for the 2013 Academy Awards, well at least just 18 categories.  (Put your input and predictions in the comment section below!):
