10 Daring Predictions for the 2013 Oscars ...


Coming up with 2013 Oscar predictions is tricky, because there were so many really fantastic movies last year, some of which came out of nowhere. In doing these predictions, I promise you several things: I've seen all these movies; you won't like or agree with every one of my predictions; and I have wisely not placed money on any of them because I do not like to lose money ever, for anything. That being said, take a look at my 2013 Oscar predictions, make yours, and then let's come back on Monday and see how we did!

1. Best Actor: Daniel-Day Lewis, Lincoln


Lincoln tops about every list of everyone's 2013 Oscar predictions. I mean, if you believe what everyone's saying, Lincoln will walk away with practically every award – and it deserves a lot of them. There aren't any vampires, but as a biopic, even the inconsistencies are pretty marvelous. It's not entirely historically accurate, but Daniel-Day Lewis really humanized our amazing 16th president. In fact, he personified Abe in his looks and his actions.

2. Best Actress: Jennifer Lawrence, Silver Linings Playbook
