2012 OSCARS: Final Predictions!

Here are my final predictions for the 2012 Oscars, which are basically identical to my previous post from two weeks ago except for Original Screenplay, which I think Woody Allen will win. I am pretty sure that Viola Davis and Octavia Spencer from The Help have wrapped up their Oscar campaigns with a victory, and that  The Artist will come out on top, with  Hugo  close behind. If there's any surprises in the Top 6 categories, it will be in Actress or Actor.

I would be so happy if there was a tie in the race for the Best Actress Oscar between Meryl Streep and Viola Davis!
