‘Lincoln, ‘Les Miserables’ predicted to lead Oscar nominations

Our 28 Experts, nine Editors and almost two thousand Users have predicted the Oscar nominations, which will be announced on Thursday morning. 

They expect “Lincoln” to lead with 12 nominations while “Les Miserables” will reap 11 bids and “Life of Pi” will pick up nine nods.  

However, while they predict “Lincoln” to win six Oscars on Feb. 24 — Best Picture, Director, Actor, Supporting Actor, Adapted Screenplay and Score — “Les Miserables” is forecast to claim only three awards (Supporting Actress, Production Design and Sound Mixing) and “Life of Pi” just two (Cinematography, Visual Effects).
