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’ve won a prize in the past, so I persist every year in the naive hope that I can win something again. As usual I’ve seen precious few of the films I’m predicting, but I shall predict nonetheless.
