Final Round of Oscar Nomination Predictions

The Oscar nominations will be announced Tuesday and it is time to nail down our final nomination predictions. As usual, this is a combination of what has been making the cut with previous award shows, what people have been talking about lately and my own personal preference. I will also include two runner-ups, but I will only count the movies in ‘My Current Picks’ when counting which ones I get correct by tomorrow.
