It’s Time For Lisa Marie’s Early Oscar Predictions for August!


Every month, around this time, I post my early Oscar predictions.  These predictions are based on random guesses, early buzz, and gut instinct.  Originally, I referred to these as being my way too early Oscar predictions but, now that we’re in August, they are merely early.

Below you can find my latest set of predictions.  The main change for this month is that I’ve factored in the fact that, based on the trailer, it looks like The Theory of Everything will be a definite contender.

And feel free to check out my predictions for March, April, May, June, and July!

  1. I’ll just trust that if you had selected a “Best Animated Feature” that the obvious winner, Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Gods, would have made the list. 😉


  2. Perhaps Oscar will be Ginger instead of Golden this year, looking at some of the acting hopefuls.. (Voldemort should be back in as well!)
