Oscar Nominations Are In!

So it's awards season, a time for fashion, speeches and upsets.  And here are my predictions for the Oscars, but I have a disclaimer: I haven't seen all the nominated performances or films.  And the categories concerning music and cinematography?  You're guess is as good as mine, so I have omitted those categories from my predictions.

Predicted winners are listed as AP's Winner.  But sometimes winning is as political as it is about acting, so there's a subcategory: Should Win.
