Academy Awards 2013 Predictions

Always a great barometer of which the way the wind's blowing, this year's Golden Globes threw some real curveballs at us, upsetting the order in some of the major categories. Steven Spielberg's latest Lincoln  was expected to sweep the floor with all others but Ben Affleck's Argo shook the apple-cart by taking a surprise win for both Best Picture (Drama) and Best Director. Never one to make something easy for myself then, here is my picks for the major categories at the 2013 Academy Awards.* The winners are announced on February 24th 2013. 

My pick for the winner of that category is highlighted in bold and grey.

*Not 100% accurate. Probably not even 80%, 65% at best.
