oscar predictions 2013


For the most part, this year I did my own research to come up with my own predictions. And by “research” I mean comparing all winners from recent award shows like the Golden Globes and various film critic circles. Normally I tend to find a chart that has all these winners already, but this year I didn’t ind one until long after I made my picks. Special thanks to Huffington Post, the ones I really couldn’t figure out I decided to side with them.

The Academy Awards are more social this year and have released their own app that, of course, has a voting ballet that you can share on Twitter and play with friends on Facebook. This is probably the only game I’d play on Facebook, by the way. I’m talking to you, people that constantly invite me to play casino games or whatever. Stop it. Anyway, the app is both on Apple and Android devices. It also has other trivia, trailers and loads of other stuff film and Oscar geeks would drool about. I kept my drooling to a minimum in case you were wondering.

Lastly, for a few more insights on my predictions, you can listen to this episode of The Lost Dial.

On to the nominees!
