I’ll admit I have a problem: early 2014 Oscar predictions

I’ll be the first to admit that I’m a bit of an addict in terms of awards season. I love it for a multitude of reasons, but that’s the subject of a totally different post. So here, I figure I’ll present my earliest list of predictions, assuming 10 nominees for Best Picture. And do keep in mind this post will just be a list, since so many of these performances are unseen, it doesn’t seem like there’s quite enough to say about them yet. I’ll also be predicting a winner in each category, which will be put in bold.
