Gold Rush Gang FINAL Oscar Nomination Predictions

oscarstatue2

It’s all come down to this.

With the 11 members of AwardsWatch’s Gold Rush Gang this year you’ll find quite a bit of unity in many categories, or at least 4/5 of the possible nominees. But, a few of our gang have really broken from the pack, sometimes being the lone vote in a category. Long choosing Blue Jasmine in Best Picture, Beth with Brie Larson in Best Actress and Michael going for a 12 Years a Slave snub in Film Editing and Sound Mixing. So much to mull over, so much to debate. We’ll all know the answers tomorrow morning but in the meantime check out what our experts have to say and then make your voice heard here in the comment section or in our forums.

Happy Predicting!
