images (48)It’s just about Oscars time! This Sunday, Hollywood’s biggest names will gather to (slightly self-indulgently) announce the best movies, actors, and more from the last year in the film industry. Our predictions for the winners this year are after the jump.

This is a very interesting year, with the race for best picture really seeming to come down to two very different movies: 12 Years a Slave and Gravity, with American Hustle as the long shot. Other races are also up for grabs, so it should be a pretty interesting evening. 2013 was a fantastic year for movies, so really we are all winners!

Below are our predictions for the winners in the major categories. The film/person that, in my opinion, WILL win will be in bold and the film/person that SHOULD win will be italicized.
