The 88th Academy Award ceremony takes place on Monday from 12.30pm AEST. We (Andy and Sam) have been keeping track of this rather crazy Season, reporting on many of the nominees and winners in the lead-up ceremonies. We have decided to reveal who we think will be taking home Oscars this year.

We have done our best to see as many nominees as possible. Apart from a few gaps in the Animated and Documentary categories, and shamefully ALL of the Foreign Language nominees, The Danish Girl is the only notable film with multiple key nominations we are yet to see.

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).
