Oscar Predictions (2013)-August is Never too Early

What will this year's Oscars look like?  Who will be the major players?  Does Harvey have the magic once again?  All of these are just a few of the questions people are asking now, but with the season getting underway, and heavy hitters like Fruitvale Station, Blue Jasmine, Nebraska, and Inside Llewyn Davis getting good press, there may be a lot of contenders already out there.  Here are my very very early August predictions.
