I decided it was just easier to go all-in and predict no runners-up than hem and haw over how likely a runner-up would be to upset my prediction. (I really think Original Screenplay and Film Editing are going to be nail-biters though. And I still do think American Hustle is going to win SOMETHING, but...)

Big Magilla wrote:Final In Memoriam - Harold Ramis (I suspect they filmed the segment with Philip Seymour Hoffman at the end but rather than sandwich Ramis in somewhere they added him at the end - subject to change if someone major dies within the next couple of days)


I can almost guarantee that Ramis won't be included in the Memoriam segment at all. There is a cut-off of about 3 weeks before the ceremony. He will most likely be included in next year's Memoriam segment.
