Oscar Predictions for the 84th Academy Awards

 This has been a great year for international cinema and films categorized more in the "art house" category.  This is reflected with many of the guild awards (DGA, SAG, WGA etc) as well as the Academy's decisions for nominations at their 84th annual ceremony.
 The following is a list of my predictions for the Oscar winners of this year and does not necessarily reflect my personal opinions for what I think should win.  Though I have made some daring choices (specifically in the "Actress In a Leading Role" category), here are my predictions:
