Well it’s that time of year again. I’m currently 9-2 down against my wife in the Oscar prediction game. Last year saw only my second win, but I’m hoping to keep the momentum going with another victory tonight.

Unfortunately I haven’t had the time to create a lovely chart of nominations this year. Here are our predictions.
