American Hustle

Indiewire will provide regular updates of our predictions for the 86th Academy Awards through March 2nd, when the winners are announced.

This is a definite opportunity to give a prize to "American Hustle" (in some scenarios, it's only prize -- though that's probably unlikely), so we say it has the edge though both "12 Years a Slave" and "The Great Gatsby" are formidable opponents.


Nominees and predictions below. Check out all predictions in all the categories here.

The nominees:
“American Hustle” Michael Wilkinson
“The Grandmaster” William Chang Suk Ping
“The Great Gatsby” Catherine Martin
“The Invisible Woman” Michael O’Connor
