Early Oscar Predictions for the 85th Academy Awards

These are my "instant" Oscar predictions based on initial instinct. I will revise these at a later date, but if the ceremony were today and I had to pick now, this is how it would be.

My predictions are in bold with an asterisk.

I have Life of Pi with 2 awards, Zero Dark Thirty and Les Miserables with 3 each, Silver Linings Playbook, The Hobbit, and Skyfall with 1 each, and Lincoln with 7.
