Oscar Nominations Predictions

Oscars

The Oscars are film’s biggest night and the Academy will be announcing their nominations very soon. An Oscar nomination can not only elevate the careers of those who win but but also cause a little indie film to become a box office hit.

The nominations will be announced by Chris Pine, Alfonso Cuaron, David Heyman and Academy President Cheryl Boone Isaacs on January 15 in a two part presentation. The two part presentation will see all 24 categories be announced live which is a first for the nomination telecast. You can catch the nominations at 5:38 PT on ABC’s Good Morning America or at www.oscar.org/live on the 15th.

In the meantime, here are my predictions of who will walk away with nominations this Thursday.
