The Oscar Narrative: Final Prediction List

So there is no going back now, it is set in stone. I am fully prepared to be incredibly wrong, and taking a look at other predictions across the Oscar blogosphere, I am not the only one. This has been a crazy year for Oscar, and I expect tonight's ceremony and its winners to continue the trend. I will be live blogging/tweeting the winners/ceremony tonight and tomorrow afternoon sometime, I will give my final thoughts on the winners, the ceremony, and the season as a whole. Until them, take a final look below, finalize your own predictions, and get ready for a wonderful night.
