We'll see directors and cinematographers holding their little golden men, beaming with pride. But, most of all, we'll get to see what is truly great in the film industry, and we'll get to honor it with the year's most prestigious television event. Several Bearing News staff members have pulled their heads together, and compiled this list of predictions for 2013's Oscar winners.
