These are really nothing more than educated guesses and should be taken with a grain of salt (especially the last four categories). Still not sure about Charlie Wilson's War (right now I have it with three acting nominations but no Best Picture nomination) or the entire Best Supporting Actress (it's not as strong as it could be, but the 7 or 8 choices we have are tough to pick between). We'll see how it goes tomorrow!
