As you can see, right now I think the films with the most nominations will be Hugo Cabret (12), War Horse (11), Source Code (11) and The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo (9). Plus I also want to give my thoughts on who to host the next Oscars and my first choice is, of course, Simon Pegg and Nick Frost joint hosting. Mainly because they are both film geeks, can bring some great geeky humour and love of all things geek to the Oscars and they have a great chemistry together as they are best friends in real life and that can really work for the Oscars, plus they are undeniably awesome. Heres hoping that these predictions will be right and that all of these films prove themselves to be incredible and justify my predictions.
