What I Wish Was in the Running for Oscars 2015

Tonight is finally the night!  I unfortunately have conflicting theater tickets that will lead me to watching the Oscars in clips afterward (but it’s Stephen Sondheim’s Assassins, so not too sad).  I’ve already stated my winner predictions, so here’s how I really wish.  I’ll go with movies in the running for this year, so note The Assassin (kinda funny with the above) is left out of cinematography.

I’ll see how my predictions do tonight:
