Empire's Oscar Predictions 2014

Image for Empire's Oscar Predictions 2014

The Empire staff have put our thinking caps on, looked at the nominees and chosen our choice in the top ten categories at this year’s Academy Awards. Some of us followed our hearts, some our heads, and some a mixture of the two, so what follows is a mix of cynicism and idealism. Have a look, see how your predictions match up, and join us on March 2 to see who really scoops the prizes.
