The nominations will be announced tomorrow morning, but you might as well just go by this list, which has been officially certified by the Dionne Warwick Psychic Hotline.


BEST PICTURE

(Ranked in descending order of likelihood)

1--The Artist

2--The Descendants

3--The Help

4--Hugo

5--Moneyball

6--Midnight in Paris

7--The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo

8--War Horse

9--Bridesmaids

10--The Tree of Life


BEST ACTRESS

1--Meryl Streep, The Iron Lady

2--Michelle Williams, My Week With Marilyn

3--Viola Davis, The Help

4--Tilda Swinton, We Need to Talk About Kevin

5--Glenn Close, Albert Nobbs

(I have a strong feeling Rooney Mara is going to get in there, but a know-it-all friend wouldn't let me insert her in place of Glenn. He swears Glenn is a lock but Tilda isn't. Maybe it'll be Rooney instead of Tilda? Oh, hell. I'm sticking with the five above.)


BEST ACTOR

1--George Clooney, The Descendants

2--Brad Pitt, Moneyball

3--Jean Dujardin, The Artist

4--Leonardo DiCaprio, J. Edgar

5--Michael Fassbender, Shame

(I've had Demián Bichir for A Better Life in my fifth slot for weeks, but I changed it to Fassbender at the last minute in a panic. I do this every year and usually my original choice was right. Oh, well. I'll live either way. Even if it's Gary Oldman. Or Ryan Gosling.)


BEST SUPPORTING ACTRESS

1--Octavia Spencer, The Help

2--Jessica Chastain, The Help

3--Berenice Bejo, The Artist

4--Shailene Woodley, The Descendants

5--Janet McTeer, Albert Nobbs


BEST SUPPORTING ACTOR

1--Christopher Plummer, Beginners

2--Kenneth Branagh, My Week With Marilyn

3--Albert Brooks, Drive

4--Jonah Hill, Moneyball

5--Nick Nolte, Warrior


BEST DIRECTOR

1--Michel Hazanavicius, The Artist

2--Alexander Payne, The Descendants

3--Martin Scorsese, Hugo

4--Woody Allen, Midnight in Paris

5--David Fincher, The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo

Best picture could be War horse because people like it very much in this year. Brad Pitt is one of my favorite actor bu I don't know about this time he get it or not. Martin Scorsese could be the best director of the year because I really like Hugo and people appreciate it works. And I really can't imagine about the actress and supporting role for this year.

Wouldn't it be Grand if "J. Edgar" received a nomination for Best Makeup?  !!!!!!

I just switched the positions of "War Horse" and "Tattoo." Getting neurotic now. I'll stop. Also, I agree that "Tree of Life" deserves higher placement and a director nod, but I'm just being realistic.

I think your Best Picture likelihood list is correct, but it kills me to see Tree of Life not only at the bottom, but below the loathsome Bridesmaids.

Oh, lordy. I'm having a sudden nagging feeling it'll be Bechir and Oldman getting noms instead of DiCaprio and Fassbender. Also, Mara instead of Swinton. But I'll stick with what I have. I'm expecting to get 79% right with these.

I hope Melissa McCarthy is nominated!

I think Leo could lose the J. Edgar momentum if it meant a newcomer or an actor who has long been snubbed like Oldman could get nominated. 

It's been a great year for the Supporting Actress category but seriously, Chastain could get nominated for 4 performances alone.  Could we make up a special category to single out the best?

Agree...........I am 99 percent sure The Artist will get it. And will Tree of Life be totally shut out?  I suspect Mara will squeak in, not Glenn or Tilda...Tilda's role makes people uncomfortable I bet.

These seem pretty spot-on. You know your shit.

PS: There will probably only be seven or eight Best Pictures, but I put 10, in descending order, just to be safe.

Agreed. She could easily get it for Tree of Life, Take Shelter, or The Debt too, but Musto's right, she'll get it for The Help.
