Meryl Streep, "Into the Woods" (Actress in a Supporting Role)
Despite the buzz around Patricia Arquette's performance in Boyhood, Culturalist's list-makers are currently giving the edge to Meryl Streep's bewitching tour de force in Into the Woods.
J.K. Simmons, "Whiplash" (Actor in a Supporting Role)
In what is probably the least controversial category of this year's award season, we're looking for J.K. Simmons to complete his sweep for his brilliant portrayal of a musical tyrant in Whiplash.
Julianne Moore, "Still Alice" (Actress in a Leading Role)
Despite Rosamund Pike's breakout performance in Gone Girl and Reese Witherspoon's transformation to go Into the Wild, Julianne Moore's heartbreaking depiction of of early-onset Alzheimer's will see her taking home the statue.
Eddie Redmayne, "The Theory of Everything" (Actor in a Leading Role)
In what might be the toughest-to-call competition of the year, Culturalist's list-makers see Eddie Redmayne's performance in The Theory of Everything knocking off Michael Keaton's career-reinventing turn in Birdman.
"The Theory of Everything" (Best Picture)
Many professional Oscar-watchers see the Best Picture category as a two-horse race between Birdman and Boyhood, but our list-makers are predicting a major upset: The Theory of Everything takes the top prize.
