Well now we have Oscar Night this Sunday 22nd February in LA and it's time for AnksReview Oscar prediction. Last two weeks I was in kind of movie marathon to watch most of nominated movies and I am happy to cover all the movies which was nominated in popular category. Academy Awards it self has it's rigorous process to select movies through various screenings and voting process, though I still feel a lot of great movies or personalities deserved to be on certain category, so I am not starting that debate and just giving my prediction based on nominated movies and personalities.

2014 was a great year with lots of amazing movies from almost every possible genre however I am seeing some of the great work is been missing from popular category. All nomination has it's fair place though I feel movie like Nightcrawler, Gone Girl, Big Eyes are not in nomination.

So here is the list of all my prediction also mentioned some alternate winners. Let's see how close I am with Oscar's judgement.
