Oscar Nomination Predictions

I'm going to be honest with you - I've paid far less attention this year to the Oscar race than normal, and kind of threw these predictions together at the last minute - when I realize that the nominations were coming out next Tuesday, and that I'll be in New York all weekend, and wouldn't have time to write a full post on it. (and no, when my wife and I booked the tripin New York - in June, around when we could get Hamilton tickets, we did not realize it would be Inauguration Weekend - hopefully, we make it out). Anyway, below are my picks in each of the categories (aside from the shorts) - I'm probably off, but this seems like the most likely scenario to me. I'll be back on Tuesday to give my more detailed thoughts on the nominees.
