Okay, so I've seen Boyhood, it is truly an amazing film, never seen anything like it before, most likely will never see anything like it again (in my lifetime), is it oscar worthy? well, if anything is, it qualifies on a number of levels IMHO. It's my pick. But Birdman will probably win though.

I've only seen 2 of the nominated movies, The Imitation Game and The Grand Budapest Hotel. I would like to see Interstellar and The Theory Of Everything.

Most of my predictions are uneducated guesses since I haven't seen too many nominated movies or performances.

The winning name is in an envelope. As a child of four can plainly see, this envelopes has been hermetically sealed. It's been kept in a #2 mayonnaise jar on Funk and Wagnall's back porch since noon yesterday. No one knows the contents of this envelope. Not even me.
