Predictions from sweepers


Sweeps based predictions:

My previous post included a listing of all nominee week nominees in one place, categorized by category…

So here are my predictions based upon assuming sweepers get in, and then filling in for those not sweeping with guesses:

Best Actor is interesting since all five potential nominees have thus far swept the nominations.

I will go ahead and say, confidence win predictions:

Lincoln for Picture, Director, Actor.

Zero Dark Thirty for Original Screenplay.

Life of Pi for Visual Effects.

Anna Karenina for Costume Design.
