Daniel Bayley and Michael Napoli make the predictions for Tuesday January 24th's Oscar nominations. Whoever gets closer buys the other man food (happens every year my friends). May the best man win! Let us know what you think of the picks.

Daniel Bayley's Predictions

Best Animated Film

1. The Adventures of Tintin
2. Rango
3. Arthur Christmas
4. Puss in Boots
5. Cars 2

Best Original Screenplay

1. The Artist
2. Midnight in Paris
3. A Seperation
4. Young Adult
5. 50/50

 Best Adapted Screenplay

1. The Descendants
2. Moneyball
3. Hugo
4. War Horse
5. The Help

 Best Supporting Actress

1. Octavia Spencer - The Help
2. Jessica Chastian- The Help
3. Bernice Bejo - The Artist
4. Janet McTeer- Albert Nobbs
5. Shaileene Woodley- The Descendants

Watch out for Melissa McCarthy.

 Best Supporting Actor

1. Christopher Plummer- Beginners
2. Albert Brooks- Drive
3. Kenneth Branaugh - My Week With Marilyn
4. Jonah Hill- Moneyball
5. Nick Nolte- Warrior

 Best Actress

1. Viola Davis- The Help
2. Glenn Close- Albert Nobbs
3. Michelle Williams- My Week With Marilyn
4. Meryl Streep- The Iron Lady
5. Rooney Mara- The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo

Tilda Swinton will get the 5th spot but I just gotta cross my fingers that the Academy will want to give Dragon Tattoo some lovin.

Best Actor

1. George Clooney- The Descendants
2. Brad Pitt- Moneyball
3. Jean Dujardin- The Artist
4. Michael Fassbender- Shame
5. Ryan Gosling- Drive

I actually would like to see Michael Shannon get a spot for Take Shelter but this is my prediction. I feel the Academy will award Gosling for two reasons: He only has one nomination after being overlooked for Blue Valentine AND this was a big year for him.

Best Director

1. Michel Hazanvious - The Artist
2. Alexander Payne - The Descendants
3. Martin Scorsese - Hugo
4. Woody Allen - Midnight in Paris
5. Steven Spielberg - War Horse

Best Picture

1. The Artist
2. The Descendants
3. Hugo
4. The Help
5. Midnight in Paris
6. Moneyball
7. War Horse
8. The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo
9. Ides of March
10. Drive

Napoli and I only agree on two categories as locks (Best Director and Best Adapted Screenplay). Let's see who comes closer!
