85th Annual Academy Award Nomination Predictions

The Oscar nominations being pushed so much earlier has really created a lot of turmoil. Has it made the nominees any less predictable? Perhaps. Only because Academy voters seemed to be scrambling to get their ballots in. Yet here we are, and I'm ready to cast my predictions in all major categories for this Thursday's announcement for the 85th Annual Academy Award nominations.

Best Picture
1. Lincoln
2. Les Miserables
3. Argo
4. Silver Linings Playbook
5. Zero Dark Thirty
6. Life of Pi
7. The Master
