Indiewire will provide regular updates of our predictions for the 85th Academy Awards through February 24th, when the winners are announced. It's perhaps a silly proposition to ever assume anything about the category where "Departures" beat "The Class" and "The Secret In Their Eyes" beat "The White Ribbon," but come on: How could they not give this to Michael Haneke's "Amour." He's a legend, he's never won (and was aforementionedly snubbed for "Ribbon"), and the film got 5 nominations including best picture, best director, best actress and best original screenplay. No foreign language film nominated for both in this category and for best picture has ever failed to win the former, so if there's no amour for "Amour" here, it will be a massive upset. Nominees and predictions below. Check out all predictions in all the categories here, and this list of all the Oscar-nominated films »
