Critics’ Choice Awards nominations predictions: ’12 Years a Slave,’ Tom Hanks …

The 250 members of the Broadcast Film Critics Association have predicted 12 of the past 18 Best Picture Oscar winners, 12 Best Actors, nine Best Actresses, nine Supporting Actors, and 11 Supporting Actresses as Academy Award champs.

Last year, they presaged the Best Picture win for “Argo” but went only two for four last year in the acting categories (Daniel Day-Lewis, “Lincoln“; Anne Hathaway, “Les Miserables”). Their Best Actress pick was Jessica Chastain (“Zero Dark Thirty“) over eventual Oscar champ Jennifer Lawrence (“Silver Linings Playbook“) while their choice for Supporting Actor was Philip Seymour Hoffman (“The Master“) with eventual Oscar winner Christoph Waltz (“Django Unchained“) not even nominated.

Below, our predictions for Monday’s nominees based upon a combination of the four sets of forecasts at Gold Derby: Experts, Editors, Users, and Top 24 Users. Our forecasted champs are in gold while potential spoilers for nominations are in italics.
