Thanks for posting the listing. Disagree with a few of your predictions though. I sincerely doubt Eddie Redmayne will get the nod again in place of Leonardo DiCaprio, who seems to be the current frontrunner for a Best Actor Oscar (especially if they move Johnny Depp out of the way for the Whitey Bulger film). No way in the world is Joy getting any love for Best Picture - Comedy. GG always picks the most serious contender and that would be The Martian, which has no business being in a Comedy category. Plus, every year the film that wins Best Comedy must have a Best Director nomination up judging from past GG history. And there is also the added addendum that outside of Lawrence's performance, Joy is being crucified by critics. I also do not see Helen Mirren winning in support. GG loves Quentin Tarantino and Jennifer Jason Leigh seems the designated water carrier for this film - plus she is a critically acclaimed actress who has been toiling in Hollywood for year without any awards recognition, so I think this is her year.

Thanks for your comment, Christoph. I mainly select my predictions on personal preference - whom would I like to see win rather than whom I think will actually win. So your predictions will probably be more accurate - we shall see!

P.S. Although I'm a big Mirren fan, I would be happy to see Jennifer Jason Leigh win - she's a great and deserving actress.
