    My way way way out on a limb Oscar prediction for 2013 is Julia Roberts for Best Supporting Actress. It’s hard to see how Jennifer Lawrence wins 2 years in a row at such a young age (besides, imo, she is miscast and dreadful in her role), and Lupita Nyong’o is a complete unknown – so I think enough voters will have enjoyed August: Osage County (far more entertaining than most of the Best Picture contenders this year) and also, Julia Roberts has something else going for her: she’s actually the LEAD in her movie, therefore she has more screen time, and delivers a really terrific performance!

    I really don’t have any other way out there predictions – I choose either the 1st or 2nd odds on favorite to win in all the other categories – any categories where you believe the academy is going to surprise us on Oscar night?

    I agree about Julia. I also want Abdi to win. Such a great performance.

    It’s not exactly ‘way out on a limb’, but I think I’m going to pick Chiwetel as my Best Actor winner. That’s the only acting category where I expect an upset, and I don’t think it will be DiCaprio. Not to mention that Best Actor has a tendency to line up with Best Picture, or at least a strong Best Picture contender.

    Barkhad Abdi for supporting actor; and I think with that BAFTA in his grip, he is a serious dark horse contender.

    None of my predictions are really “out on a limb”. I just have a feeling we are going to have a predictable but good Oscars

    I would say Jonah Hill.

    But as usual, I can see Emmanuel Lubezki loosing in one of the biggest shocks of the night.

    My faith will not waver in Leonardo DiCaprio. Even though he isn’t an “out on a limb” choice. I’m sticking by him no matter what.

    The Lone Ranger was the only of the three Oscar nominees to go home emptyhanded from the makeup and hairstlying guild awards, so that would be quite the upset.
