OK, after months of Oscar prognosticating for Movie City News, we're finally at the end of the road.

I don't know that I'll be in an Oscar pool this year, so I just put together my own list of final predictions, along with the name of the film/person I'd actually vote for if I had the chance (in all but a couple of categories where I haven't seen enough of the films).

UPDATE: On Sunday afternoon, I made 2 last minute prediction changes (these are final as of 12:17 p.m. PT).
