The Oscars are almost upon us once again and as always I will make my predictions, but for the first time I’m posting them online rather than just sharing thoughts amongst friends. Now, for some awards I really just could not make my mind up over which film deserves it more so I’ve noted two winners down. In one or two cases, I haven’t actually seen any of the films nominated – and won’t have time to – so I haven’t ventured a guess.

Without further delay, here are my 2015 Oscar predictions.
