Oscar Nomination Predictions 2015

This year has been a wild one for awards attention and category fraud, but it is finally coming to a close tomorrow at 5:30 AM Pacific.  My alarm is set for 5:20, and I am all prepared to stream the nominations ceremony, despite being disappointed Dick Poop won’t be nominated for Legend‘s cinematography.  Wondering if #OscarsSoWhite is going to trend again (almost assuredly) or if we can expect many of the same old Jennifer Lawrences back on the nomination boxes (again, I’m guessing likely), I hereforth present what I expect the nominations to be in the morning.  I won’t be guessing documentaries or shorts as I have not seen many.

 

I anticipate my groaning and cheering to wake up my rather baffled roommates:
