Oscar Predictions Guide

I, like many others will sit down to watch the Oscars on Sunday night, at least until I doze off after a boring string of categories or get tired of the continued cheesy rendition by the Oscar Orchestra of some theme song for an 8 or 9 time winner.

So going in to the weekend, I thought it would be fun to report on what some of the predictions are according to the people participating in The Envelope, the LA Times Inkling powered iPhone prediction app we helped with. So here goes:
