2015 OSCAR NOMINATION PREDICTIONS!



Sorry folks, for being a bit short this year when it comes to my Oscar Predictions, I'm really just overloaded and busy, and I'm already behind on this blog and everything else, so no descriptions of why for now, unfortunately, hopefully I'll be more concrete when I predicted the winners, but I'm gonna just provide a long list of possible nominees and then provide my predictions. Sorry, I can't be more than that this year, and I'm not even sure I'm gonna do the two music categories, (I did, but I don't have any confidence in those predictions, so ask your designated music/movie person for help)  but that's all I can do, and I promise I'll look through the nominees in great detail when they're announced and I'll try to finish more on this blog, in the near future, including the long-delayed One-Year-Later Awards. For now, let's just go through the categories, and who could be nominated and who I'm predicting! Again, sorry for being so rushed this year.
