OSCAR PREDICTIONS 5 - 6 WEEKS TO GO


So, what's changed? The race is now well and truly under way, and... fuck all has changed. Face it, two little critic groups (and by that, yes I do mean vertically-challenged critics) ain't gonna shift the state of things that much. And certainly not when their choices were so different! Anyway, we're almost half way through these nomination predictions, can you believe it?! Expect to see many more changes next week.
