My Final Oscar Nomination Predictions!

The nominations will be announced tomorrow morning, but you might as well just go by this list, which has been officially certified by the Dionne Warwick Psychic Hotline.

BEST PICTURE

(Ranked in descending order of likelihood)

1--The Artist

2--The Descendants

3--The Help

4--Hugo

5--Moneyball

6--Midnight in Paris

7--The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo

8--War Horse

9--Bridesmaids

10--The Tree of Life

BEST ACTRESS

1--Meryl Streep, The Iron Lady

2--Michelle Williams, My Week With Marilyn

3--Viola Davis, The Help

4--Tilda Swinton, We Need to Talk About Kevin

5--Glenn Close, Albert Nobbs

(I have a strong feeling Rooney Mara is going to get in there, but a know-it-all friend wouldn't let me insert her in place of Glenn. He swears Glenn is a lock but Tilda isn't. Maybe it'll be Rooney instead of Tilda? Oh, hell. I'm sticking with the five above.)

BEST ACTOR

1--George Clooney, The Descendants

2--Brad Pitt, Moneyball

3--Jean Dujardin, The Artist

4--Leonardo DiCaprio, J. Edgar

5--Michael Fassbender, Shame

(I've had Demián Bichir for A Better Life in my fifth slot for weeks, but I changed it to Fassbender at the last minute in a panic. I do this every year and usually my original choice was right. Oh, well. I'll live either way. Even if it's Gary Oldman. Or Ryan Gosling.)
