Predicting The Oscars Wrong

Note: I'd like to thank Scott Feinberg for alerting me to this contest.


Awards Daily has created their 1st annual Predict The Oscars Wrong Contest, and the goal of it plays out just like the name suggests. Instead of trying to pick all 24 categories correctly like most people, you try to pick all 24 categories incorrectly. In essence, you pick the one nominee from each category that you think has zero percent chance of winning. This is more for fun than anything else, and it should be interesting to find out if this is as easy as it sounds. In my opinion, the nominees with the least chance to win are:
