One thought on “Final Predictions for the 84th Academy Awards Nominations!

  1. I agree with most of these predictions, but my guess is that Glenn Close is going to take Rooney Mara’s spot. It wouldn’t shock me to see it go the other way, but I still think the Academy skews toward older actresses with established careers. I also wonder if there will be 10 Best Picture nominations. i do think that if there are less (like maybe 8), your bottom will be the ones that drop.
