Disclaimer: These are the films that I personally believe should win in each category, not my prediction of who I believe The Academy will choose.  Also, I did not see Song of the Sea, The Tale of Princess Kaguya, or Two Days, One Night.

Picture – Boyhood  (2nd Pick: The Theory of Everything, though Birdman will win if Boyhood does not)
Actor – Eddie Redmayne  (2nd Pick: Michael Keaton)
Actress – Julianne Moore  (2nd Pick: Rosamund Pike)
Supporting Actor – J.K. Simmons  (2nd Pick: Edward Norton)
Supporting Actress – Patricia Arquette  (2nd Pick: Emma Stone)  (Tough to leave off Meryl Streep)
Directing – Richard Linklater (Boyhood)  (2nd Pick: Alejandro G. Iñárritu (Birdman))
Film Editing – Whiplash  (2nd Pick: Boyhood)  (tough to leave off American Sniper)

Music (Original Score) – Interstellar  (2nd Pick: The Theory of Everything)
Music (Original Song) – I’m Not Gonna Miss You (from Glen Campbell…I’ll Be Me)  (but 2nd Pick: Glory (from Selma) will win)  (It’s a shame that Lost Stars was the song nominated from Begin Again, there were many superior songs in that movie that could've won this category)
Costume Design – Inherent Vice (but The Grand Budapest Hotel will win)  (2nd Pick: Into the Woods)
Makeup and Hairstyling – The Grand Budapest Hotel  (2nd Pick: Guardians of the Galaxy)
