My Uneducated Oscar Guesses

It's that time again. The time where I try to guess who is going to win the Oscars. And, I'm consistent. I haven't seen any of the movies. Except, one animated feature. How to Train Your Dragon 2. I don't do it for all the categories, just the main ones. So, here we go. My choices are in bold. Tomorrow, I will post the results and see how close I am.
