2013 Oscar Nomination (Pick Results)

I highlighted the actual Academy Award (Oscar) nominees for films released in 2013. I did pretty well...I'm a writer, so, of course, I got all those categories right, then totally whiffed on makeup and hairstyle. Surprised Saving Mr. Banks only got one nomination and The Grandmaster did not get one for best Foreign Language film. American Hustle did well getting nods in all major categories including acting while Gravity got the most with 10 and 12 Years a Slave was close behind with 9. Look for my picks before March 2, 2014:
