85th-academy-awards

The Oscars are almost upon us! Just for fun and because we can, please find out uneducated picks* (**guesses**) for who we think will take home the golden statues.

The nominee we think will win is in bold.

The nominee we want to win is in blue.

If the nominee we want to win is the same as who we think will win, it will be in bold blue.

We’ve left out a couple of categories as we really have no idea whatsoever and don’t feel like stabbing in the dark.

Check out our picks after the jump.
