State of the Oscar Race: Final Nomination Prediction List

Ok, so whew! This has been an incredibly crazy week. The predictions below are the shakiest I have made in the last four years of following the Academy Awards. Moving the date up is frustrating for those of us who try to make a clear picture of it all, but also incredibly exciting for tomorrow morning, where literally anything can happen. I will watch the nominations live, and then by 10 (I have to run an errand), will have the nominations up. Sometime tomorrow afternoon hopefully I will post my reactions, all before tomorrow night's BFCA Critics Choice Awards (jeez tomorrow is busy). So here is my final list, no changes.
