My 2015 Oscar Predictions

Shane over at Film Actually is once again hosting his Oscar Nominations contest, and this year I’ve managed to remember it’s happening before it’s already over, so I’m going to take part. I’ve got no hope of winning, I just want to pitch in and promote it a bit more, but I’m still going to throw in my ballot. My predictions all kind of fall apart towards the end (I haven’t even seen any of the potential nominees for Best Foreign Language Picture of Best Documentary) and in some cases I went with what I want to be nominated rather than what I think (see the Best Original Song category). Regardless, here’s my predictions for this year’s nominees:
