Add caption

Hunger Games' Jennifer Lawrence announces the Academy Award nominations Tuesday morning. Hopefully in this dress. Here's what's gonna happen:

1.    The Artist
2.    The Descendants
3.    The Help
4.    Hugo
5.    Midnight in Paris
6.    Moneyball
7.   Tree of Life
8. War Horse 

The images in my lil' collage above are your top 5 for-sures. 
Intrestingly, they are the alphabetical first five too.
New rules will result in anywhere from 5-10 Best Picture nominees. 

George Clooney, The Descendants
Leonardo DiCaprio, J. Edgar
Jean Dujardin, The Artist
Michael Fassbender, Shame
Brad Pitt, Moneyball

Glenn Close, Albert Nobbs
Viola Davis, The Help
Meryl Streep, The Iron Lady
Tilda Swinton, We Need To Talk About Kevin
Michelle Williams, My Week With Marilyn

Supporting Actor
Kenneth Branagh, My Week With Marilyn
Albert Brooks, Drive
Jonah Hill, Moneyball
Christopher Plummer, Beginners
Max Von Sidoh, Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close

Darnit. No spot for Uggie, the pooch from The Artist

Supporting Actress
Benice Bejo,The Artist
Jessica Chastain,The Help
Melissa McCarthy,Bridesmaids
Janet McTeer, Albert Nobbs
Octavia Spencer,The Descendants

Vanessa Redgrave could snatch the Janet McTeer spot for Coriolanus.

Hazanavicius, The Artist
Scorsese, Hugo
Payne, The Descendants
Allen, Midnight In Paris
Malick, The Tree Of Life

Speilberg and Fincher likely to sneak in. 

Screenplay (Original)
The Artist
Midnight In Paris
Win Win

Usually the most somber and serious category. This year I’m happily predicting all comedies.

Screenplay (Adapted)
The Descendants
The Help
Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy

The Girl with Dragon Tattoo is neck and neck with Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy for the last spot. Of course that sentence sounds like the title of a much better film.

Animated Picture
Adventures Of TinTin
Puss in Boots
Arthur Christmas
Chico and Rita

I’m thinking the Pixar streak is over. Cars 2 was a crash and miss.

That's it. Good luck!
