I'd say you're definitely not wrong with most of this list, at least in the ones that really matter. Good prediction mate.

I hope your predictions come true but I think a lot of people don't put much stock in awards.

OH GOD Rango. All I know about it is how much drama it sparked by having so many characters smoke cigarettes or somethin'...

I have, sadly enough, not seen any of these. Someday though...or if it shows up on Netflix~!

You might just be right on with these. Too bad I don't have a place around to plunk some change down on some of these.
