Adam and Matt Predict the 85th Academy Awards

     February 23, 2013

2013-oscars-slice

Adam and I briefly talked about our predictions on the latest episode of The Collision, but we know your Oscar pool needs more guidance.  It’s a rough year, and a lot of Oscar ballots are going to go down in flames.  Last year, I played the wild card on my Oscar predictions and lost big, but this year I’m going to try and be a bit savvier.  However, I’m going up against Collider’s Oscar guru, so if you’re going to copy one of our cheat-sheets, it’s probably best to cheat off Adam.

Hit the jump for who we think deserves to win and who we think will win at the 85th Academy Awards.  Be sure to come back Sunday night when I’ll be live-blogging the ceremony.  Adam and I will also be tweeting the Oscars, so be sure to follow us @AdamChitwood and @MattGoldberg, respectively.
