Predictions for the Academy Awards Tonight: All Nominations And Projected Winners.

Do I want to watch the Oscars tonight? Well… I’m kind of torn. There’s nothing more that I hate than a bunch of people in fancy clothes using honors bestowed on them to rant and rave on a political soapbox. The upside is that if  it happens, I’ll have some new material to rant about on the site. Nevertheless being the huge movie fan that I am, I’m insanely curious to see who’s going to take home the awards this evening as there were so many good hits this year. I fully expect La L:a Land to sweep the Oscars tonight–winning at least three and possibly five but with a night like tonight and with so many films that knocked it out of the park this year, anything can happen.  So as is the annual tradition, The Daily Diatribe will be predicting the winners from every Academy Award Category. The projected winner will be in bold.  So without further ado:
