Indiewire will provide updates of our predictions for the 87th Academy Award nominations through January 2015, when the nominations are announced.

Best Adapted Screenplay is is a much more slim race than its sibling category Original Screenplay. "Gone Girl," "The Theory of Everything" and "The Imitation Game" are locked in, leaving two slots to be fought out by a pretty weak list of contenders. It's enough to make you wish they'd just go with 3 here and given the original category 2 more slots.

Check out our predictions in other categories here.

From What We've Seen, These Three Seem Pretty Locked In:
1. Graham Moore, "The Imitation Game"
2. Anthony McCarten, "The Theory of Everything"
3. Gillian Flynn, "Gone Girl"

Fighting For The Final Two Slots:
4. Nick Hornby, "Wild"
5. Paul Thomas Anderson, "Inherent Vice"
6. Joel Coen, Ethan Coen, Richard LaGravenese, William Nicholson, "Unbroken"
7. Richard Glatzer, Wash Westmoreland, "Still "Alice"
8. Joon-ho Bong, Kelly Masterson, "Snowpiercer"
