I like Boyhood but it's overrated. For that reason it will probably win Best Picture over Birdman.

Cant help but feel that theyre gonna guve Budman BP and Linklater BD, despite AGI winning DGA.

But whatever, a Redmayne Best actor win, a birdman bp win, a whiplash adapted screenplay win, an intetstellar visual effects win and a theory of everything score win and i'm a happy camper.

Birdman, Keaton, Pike, Anderson/AGI, Simmons/Norton, Stone, Franklin et al., Zimmer. Those are my must-haves, and I'll drink every time they inevitably lose out to others. 8-)

These are my final picks, both objective and personal. Such a difficult year to call, I feel like less than half of the categories are locked in.

Personally can't wait for Empire Awards where Nolan and Finch are most likely going to get the major awards and many of the underrated things in 2014 are also going to get the recognition they deserved as usual.

Edit: What was the thing with using the word "swap"? I guess my mind doesn't function properly, it's past my bedtime.£
