Wes Anderson, The Grand Budapest Hotel
Alejandro G. Iñárritu, Birdman
Richard Linklater, Boyhood

Linklater for the dedication and consistency over 12 years.
Will Win

Best Supporting Actress
The Nominees
Patricia Arquette, Boyhood

Simmons.  Obvious.

Best Actor

Steve Carell, Foxcatcher
Bradley Cooper, American Sniper
Benedict Cumberbatch, The Imitation Game
Michael Keaton, Birdman
Eddie Redmayne, The Theory of Everything

Would be hard to argue against Redmayne.

Michael Keaton is probably in the lead, but it could be a flip of a coin here.

Best Picture
The Nominees
American Sniper
The Grand Budapest Hotel
The Imitation Game
The Theory of Everything
Should Win
"Boyhood." Come on, it took 12 years to make and it's brilliant.
Will Win
Odds are that Birdman will take it.  I've seen it twice and  could easily watch it again, so wouldn't mind either way.
