My Oscar Predictions

Better late than never, here are my predictions for who will come out on top tomorrow night. 
Last year we had an Oscars event at our Uni house and everybody got a voting sheet to predict who they thought would win. I actually guessed the most correctly and won (which I was extremely smug about), so here's hoping I do as well this year even though I'm not really competing with anybody this time around.
It should go without saying that in quite a few cases these are educated guesses rather than a representation of who I would actually like to win.
