Monday Oscar Odds

Full-fledged, extensive Oscar predictions are coming in January, but I’d like to keep a running list of my predicted nominees up until that point, based purely on what we know now and subject to plenty of change. I’ll expand to include other categories later. For this week, I’ll offer my first official predictions for the top eight categories. Golden Globe and SAG predictions will be coming at the end of November and the beginning of December. For now, check back every Monday for a slightly updated list of Oscar predictions. Please chime in the comments with your thoughts!
