My Uneducated Oscar Guesses

It's that time again. Time for me to try and guess the Oscar winners. As with previous years, I haven't seen any of the movies. At least the top 10. I did see Frozen, which is up for Best Animated Feature. I only choose the main categories. My choices with be in bold. Tomorrow, I will see how close I was. I try to decide by hype and what's I've read in the papers.
