Okay, I haven't seen ALL of the movies nominated, so my opinion definitely may change...I've based my predictions/hopes on personal viewing, reviews, opinions and various other things...It's just a shame that a lot of these films are VERY new in the UK so I haven't had the chance to actually see them.

This isn't a completely FAIR viewpoint by all means.
