Oscar predictions : 2013 winners


2013 Academy Award winners to be

The Oscar nominations are out, and we can already see some controversial titles in the shortlist.

First of all ‘Zero Dark Thirty’ should cause a few headaches for the CIA and the intelligence community. The depiction of torture in the movie has been a big debate for weeks, and with senators piling pressure on the filmmakers, could this just be the controversy we’ve been waiting for?

Then we have films such as Ang Lee’s ‘Life of Pi’ and Tarantino’s much loved (but also disliked) ‘Django Unchained’ heading for Oscar glory in the ‘Best Motion Picture’ category.

So without further ado, here is my prediction list of this year’s 2013 Oscar winners.
