Though I am yet to see The Artist, I have tinkered with my 2011 Oscar Predictions one last time before the announcements. These are my final predictions. I couldn't help but throw in a couple of personal picks that I accept are unlikely, but it's fun to be optimistic.
Each category has some alternatives (listed in order of likelihood) below. I have offered no explanations for these selections - but it is a mix of personal opinion and influence from the results of the lead up awards ceremonies. I have not included the categories of Best Original Song and the Shorts. The Artist and Hugo tied for the most nominations with ten apiece. Let me know what you think in the comments below.
