I correctly predicted 4 out of 5 of these (80%) with the Ides Of March being number 6 in my previous predictions. In the end, I think that this will come down to The Descendants versus Moneyball for the win. I may change my mind between now and the ceremony, but for now I’m going with The Descendants.
1. Alexander Payne, Nat Faxon and Jim Rash for The Descendants (Predicted Winner) (previous rank 1)
2. Aaron Sorkin and Steven Zaillian for Moneyball (previous rank 2)
3. John Logan for Hugo (previous rank 4)
4. George Clooney and Grant Heslov for The Ides Of March (previous rank 6)
5. Bright O’Connor and Peter Straughaun for Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy (previous rank 5)
