Oscar Predictions!

And with less than 24 hours to go I scoot under the wire with my predictions list. Presented in absolutely fabulous monochrome I give to you my “should win” and my “will win” film for each category in reverse category order to the official Oscars website. (Because, why not?)

Bear in mind there are some films I haven’t seen, tragically this does include The Master and all of the documentaries. For those categories I will make random guesses and see whether the fates favour me. However I make no apology for not having seen Snow White and the Huntsman. Here goes!
