BOLD predictions...

This year, Neil Patrick Harris takes the stage at the Academy Awards Ceremony to honor the best films and filmmaking of 2014. Here's a quick rundown of the categories close to my heart as well as my five bold predictions for the ceremony:

Best Picture: Birdman

Best Director: Alejandro Inarritu, Birdman

Best Actor: Eddie Redmayne, The Theory of Everything

Best Actress: Julianne Moore, Still Alice

Best Supporting Actor: J.K. Simmons, Whiplash

Best Supporting Actress: Patricia Arquette, Boyhood

Best Original Screenplay: Wes Anderson, The Grand Budapest Hotel

Best Adapted Screenplay: Damien Chazelle, Whiplash

Best Cinematography: Emmanuel Lubezki, Birdman

Best Animated Feature: How to Train Your Dragon 2

Best Visual Effects: Interstellar

Best Original Song: "Glory," Selma

Best Makeup & Hair: Frances Hannon and Mark Coulier,  The Grand Budapest Hotel

Best Costume Design: Colleen Atwood, Into the Woods

Best Production Design: Adam Stockhausen (Production Design); Anna Pinnock (Set Decoration), The Grand Budapest Hotel

Best Film Editing: Sandra Adair, Boyhood

Best Sound Mixing: John Reitz, Gregg Rudloff and Walt Martin, American Sniper

Best Sound Editing: Alan Robert Murray and Bub Asman, American Sniper

BOLD predictions:

1.) The Grand Budapest Hotel will walk away with the most awards.

2.) Boyhood will only win two awards (Supporting Actress & Editing).

3.) This year, the Academy Awards ceremony will bring in the highest ratings in five years and NPH will be back to host at least three more times.

4.) A Christopher Nolan movie WILL NOT win either of the sound design categories.

5.) Birdman will win Best Picture and Director, but its leading star will get shut out.
