It’s been a funny old year. What with Hollywood holding back many of its biggest titles, and the qualifying period being extended by two extra months, this year’s nominees make for a wonderfully bizarre, eclectic and inclusive bunch. Some categories have been locked seemingly since the beginning of the season, while others – most notably Best Actress – are still wide open. But it’s time to put my money where my mouth is, and make my final predictions:
