Oscars 2014 – a few predictons

In just a couple of hours, Hollywood royalty will all gather together for the 86th Academy Awards. We’ll find out who will win big at this year’s Oscars and it’s the culmination of a long, but very exciting and entertaining awards season. I’m going to be up from around 1am, CAT watching E! Entertainment’s Live from the Red Carpet, followed by the live show. I can’t wait to see what Ellen DeGeneres has in store for us and I’m really excited to see the big winners. The only big film contender I haven’t seen is Blue Jasmine, but if the other awards are anything to go by, Cate Blanchett should ready herself for an Oscar speech.

Here are a few more of my Oscars 2014 predictions:
