Post-Cannes Oscar predictions

So, after Cannes film festival, awards season talk tends to come a bit more into the front. And so, in light of that, and a handful of release date changes that happened a while back, notably the likes of Gravity and The Great Gatsby being pushed back to next season, now seems a good time to bring up a slightly revised list of predictions.
