    Yes, it’s absurd, crazy, reckless and irresponsible, but– what the Hades — let’s do it anyway: predict the top Oscar races this early. Promise: we won’t hold these picks against you later, but if you nail it now, you’ll be able to claim bragging rights and we all promise to shower you with glory, worship and deafening praise later on when you’re proven right. Who DARES to go first?

    Note:
    as you can see, I’m putting a lot of faith in ‘Big Eyes’ to be Harvey’s main horse; this could very well switch with ‘The Imitation Game’ or not at all.
    Same faith with ‘Inherent Vice’. 
    Watch out for Selma, Theory of Everything, American Sniper, Into the Woods, Sufferagette, and Fury

    I don’t know what planet some people are in with regard to Johnny Depp in Into the Woods. Guys, his role is TINY. It’s barely a part at all. The Wolf is in no way an award-worthy or nomination-worthy role. None of the guys will be picked out of this film, I guarantee you. Blunt, Streep and Kendrick are the only possibilities, and even then, I think it’s fairly slim… Depp has no business being in anyone’s predictions.

    Why does everybody have Julianne Moore in supporting? Every single person that has seen the film has touted her a lead contender. Chastain is also apparently a lead in “A Most Violent Year.”

    BP: Foxcatcher
    BD: Bennett Miller
    Actor: Steve Carell (fingers crossed for Ralph Fiennes though)
    Actress: Jessica Chastain (Julianne Moore if Still Alice comes out this year)
    Sup Actor: Edward Norton
    Sup Actress: Laura Dern

    I’m not predicting Inherent Vice for anything because it just seems so anti-Oscar but that will change if a) the trailer is amazing or b) the reviews are glowing.

    Both have borderline roles. So it’s easier for them, in the 21st Century Hollywood, to put them into supporting category.
    This is fraud, but they will agree if they want the nomination.

    Ask this ladies.

    Some people say Witherspoon was supporting and Weisz leading. Switched!

    And that’s not an excuse.

    LEADING characters/performances that got nominated in supporting category in the last years:

    Julia Roberts, August: Osage County
    Helen Hunt, The Sessions
    Berenice Bejo, The Artist
    Hailee Steinfeld, True Grit
    Cate Blanchett, Notes on a scandal
    Rachel Weisz, The Constant Gardener
    Catherine Zeta-Jones, Chicago
    Julianne Moore, The Hours
    Jennifer Connelly, A beautiful mind

    and the men:

    Philip Seymour Hoffman, The Master
    Philip Seymour Hoffman, Doubt
    Christoph Waltz, Django unchained
    Christian Bale, The Fighter
    Jake Gyllenhaal, Brokeback Mountain
    Benicio del Toro, Traffic

    Leading performances? They’re as supporting as it gets. Specially Bale’s.

    I’m sure I’ll get flack for this, but am I the only one who’s not very confident with ‘Gone Girl’? Everyone’s predicting it to be like ‘The Social Network’ ‘s level of Oscar run, when I see it as Dragon Tattoo’s run at most: Actress + some tech.  Someone convince me, please!
