They’re Here~ My Big Bold 2013 Oscar Nomination Predictions!!

les-miz2012 was a fantastic year for quality films and up to ten of them could compete for Best Picture. I could easily pick ten deserving favorites and the Academy will likely fill ten slots as well (they will nominate anywhere from 5 to 10 depending on some strange math). However, some great films may be lost in the shuffle and there will definitely be some actors out in the cold. The Supporting Actor race is ridiculously overflowing with wonderful potential contenders… So, while I hold out hope for two of my favorites, The Perks of Being a Wallflower and The Impossible, to land in multiple categories, I may have to accept that they only get one nom apiece. I do expect my favorite film Les Miserables to fight with Lincoln for the most nominations while the brilliant Zero Dark Thirty and Argo should also pop up all over the place. And watch for Skyfall to become the first Bond film to contend for the top prize and more. But just where will those films land? Check out my big bold 2013 Oscar nomination predictions and then come back Thursday morning the 10th to see who made the final cut.
