Since I had a good run last year, here again are my annual Academy Award for Best Picture nominee predictions for 2014. This, of course, is assuming the Academy picks 10 films (in years past they have picked as few as five and as many as 10. They chose 9 in 2013). All of these films were chosen based on hype/potential, although I have seen Grand Budapest (March release) and Boyhood (summer release).

Honorable Mentions:

Best Picture Nominees:

I feel pretty good about this one!
