2016 Oscar Nomination Predictions

Every year Shane over at Film Actually hosts an Oscar nominations contest, wherein we try to guess what films will be nominated. I took part last year and by some utter fluke won a Blu-Ray of Her, so I figured I’d give it a shot this year too. Bear in mind that amongst this year’s contenders I’m easily one of the least qualified, as of the 42 films amongst my predictions I’ve only seen 9, so this is all guessing of the highest order. So, without further ado, here’s what I think will be receiving nominations next Thursday:
