– The Awards Circuit has released their final predictions to be almost exactly the same as TheCredits.org.
– While several sources think Lupita Nyong’o will win for Best Supporting Actress, the NY Times thinks Jennifer Lawrence will win it for American Hustle, but believe Nyong’o is the strong contender in that category. The news sources also predicts 12 Years a Slave for Best Adapted Screenplay and Best Original Screenplay for American Hustle. In addition, the NY Times thinks 20 Feet From Stardom will win for Best Documentary. The rest of their predictions seem to match many of the other sources we’ve gathered information from this year.
