If you don't think "The Oscars nominations will be announced tomorrow morning" is the best English sentence you could possibly read today, then get the hell out of here.

Everybody else: The Oscars nominations will be announced tomorrow morning! (!!!!!)

Rejoice.

Back in August I predicted what the Best Picture category would look like.

2014 Best Picture Oscar Nominee Predictions 2.0 (In order of certainty):
12 Years a Slave
Gravity
American Hustle
Captain Phillips
The Wolf of Wall Street
Saving Mr. Banks
Nebraska
Her
Inside Llewyn Davis
Dallas Buyers Club

Other three I can't pull the trigger on:
Philomena
Blue Jasmine
August: Osage County

Note that the Academy could nominate between 5 and 10 films for Best Picture.

The nominations will be announced Thursday, January 16, at 7:38 a.m. on ABC.

UPDATE: The Academy only went nine deep in the category. (Which is stupid; since the awards are just another marketing tool for movies, maximize the exposure you can provide.)

I missed on Inside Llewyn Davis and Saving Mr. Banks, and Philomena made it in when I thought it wouldn't. I had it ranked 11th.

The Oscars air Sunday, March 2nd, on ABC. (Squee!)

Here were my predictions 5 months ago. I think I get a pass on The Monuments Men because it got pushed back to 2014.

Fruitvale Station
The Butler
Gravity
August: Osage County
The Wolf of Wall Street
American Hustle
The Monuments Men
Saving Mr. Banks
Inside Llewyn Davis
12 Years a Slave
