With the nominees in the 87th Academy Awards to be announced in the early hours of Friday morning here in Australia, I thought I would reveal my predictions as to who those anticipated nominees might be.
These predictions have come from a mix of influences – keeping up with the ‘experts’ tips, keeping tabs on the nominees and winners at the various critics awards and Guilds, and mere speculation. I have made my predictions 80% with my head and 20% with my heart. In a lot of instances I hope I am wrong, but even though I don’t particularly like films such as The Imitation Game or Whiplash I am convinced they are going to be a part of this year’s ceremony.
So, after the jump, check out who my predicted nominees are, with a series of alternatives (in order of likelihood).
