Since it’s such a wide open Oscar race, since nothing like this has happened quite this way … ever … theories keep popping up everywhere. Moreover, there doesn’t appear to be a very strong consensus forming. The only thing pundits seem absolutely certain about is Argo winning Best Picture.

The psychics know this and yet:

In a survey of 50 Hollywood Psychics professionals, more predicted an Oscar win for Lincoln than for any other film, with most of the remaining forecasts split almost evenly between Argo and Les Misérables.

They also have Daniel Day-Lewis and Jennifer Lawrence to pick up the acting prizes, and for Spielberg to pick up his third Best Director Oscar.

The Huffington Post has also come up with an odd kind of way of calculating things, using an eccentricities method of known networks. In that paradigm, Daniel Day-Lewis, Naomi Watts, Sally Field and Robert De Niro are the winners.

    Psychics? Good grief, you Californians, you…

  • Let’s hope these psychics are getting the right vibes. I am far from giving up hope, though like every other gutless coward out there I am publicly saving face. But I keep thinking of 12 nominations vs. 7 nominations. I love LIFE OF PI and LES MISERABLES too of course, but LINCOLN is really the only film that can beat out ARGO.

    Psychic predictions? Slow news day!

  • KT

    Be careful what you wish for. I have a feeling the only film that can beat out ARGO is SILVER LININGS PLAYBOOK, which is probably #2 on the preferential ballot.

  • Corvo

    LINCOLN can still win BP but Anne Hathaway can’t be robbed. It would be really a shame.

    I am not a psychic per say, but I was born with a sixth sense- and I never have revealed to the world that I actually can predict and forsee the future. Last year I knew all the Oscar winners but never bothered posting, for fear of landslides of emails asking me to predict their own futures. But this year being so crazy, I have decided to come forth and let you all know who is going to win Sunday. Get ready for some major upsets, my own brain was going nuts when I discovered the truth. READ NO FURTHER IF YOU DON’T WANT TO SEE WHO THE WINNERS WILL BE…

    Anyways those are your winners- Sally Field is the biggest jaw dropper- get ready for the speech of the night, she goes on for over 4 minutes and even gets a second standing ovation when she exits the stage. Argo will win nothing, hear me now- it gets zilch- Zero Dark Thirty wins more then expected. Silver Linings also goes home with 0.
