Already Focusing on Next Year

I know this is a stupid idea, and the current oscars haven't even been handed out. But it's fun and it gets me excited since this year winners are already obvious this gives me a chance to make daring guesses and look back on them and laugh come next year.

If I get more then 2 correct in any category come next year, I that will be incredible.

Main films I expect to be in contention this time next year are… Biutiful, Hereafter, Inception, Miral, Rabbit Hole, The Rum Diary, The Conspirator, The Social Network, The Tree of Life, True Grit, The Way Back, Black Swan, The Beaver, Another Year, The Fighter, The Kings Speech, Love and Other Drugs, Fair Game, We Need to Talk About Kevin, The American, Robin Hood, Never Let Me Go, Somewhere, a few we have no Idea about yet and sadly not Shutter Island.
