And now for some completely unfounded predictions! Lincoln will probably win for Best Drama, and while I hope Moonrise Kingdom wins Best Comedy/Musical, that will probably go to Silver Linings Playbook.

Best Screenplay is a toss-up, although I’m guessing either Lincoln or Zero Dark Thirty.

Best Director is another toss-up since I don’t know a thing about direction but perhaps Ben Affleck will win?

Best Dramatic actor will go to Daniel Day-Lewis, and actress will probably go to Jessica Chastain, who’s getting a ton of buzz for her performance.

For the comedy/musical half, I’m assuming Hugh Jackman will win for the actors and Jennifer Lawrence will win for the actresses, especially since she’s had a pretty stellar year.

For the supporting cast, expect Anne Hathaway to walk away with some hardware, as well as … I don’t know, Leonardo DiCaprio? Maybe?

I’m not even going to bother guessing the foreign film, although best animation will probably go to Brave, although I’m holding out for a Wreck-It Ralph win.

Gun to my head, I’m guessing John Williams wins for Lincoln‘s score, and Adele will probably score her own win for Skyfall. Stay tuned later for the TV nominations!
