Awards: Oscar Predictions 2013 – September/October
by Matthew Durham

I recently wrote an article about What we learned from Telluride, Venice and Toronto. Within it I kind of hinted at what Oscar Predictions would be looking like come February (Ceremony has been moved to February, Announcement of nominations to January.)

I had meant to do my predictions earlier, but wanted to do some major research before posting them, a lot of mathematics and consideration help from other more popular Oscar bloggers at websites and most importantly Gold Derby, which takes all the bloggers predictions and narrows them in percentages.
