Without further adieu, here are our official projections for who will be taking home the gold statues on Sunday night.

Best Picture: No Country For Old Men

In the end, it’s more about the campaigns that the films themselves. Nobody has really distinguished themselves in this race and therefore, the favored film coming in reigns supreme. Since its inception, “No Country” has been hailed as a classic and we’re thinking this perception alone fuels it all the way to the finish.

Best Director: Joel and Ethan Coen, No Country For Old Men

They’ve paid their dues and most people in Hollywood like them. More often than not, this category matches up with Best Picture. This year won’t be any different.

Best Actor: Daniel Day-Lewis, There Will Be Blood

He’s won just about everything and he’s been giving great speeches along the way. He should have won his second trophy for Gangs of New York 5 years ago. He’ll get it this time.

Best Actress: Julie Christie, Away From Her

Marion Cotillard has momentum on her side, but it probably won’t be enough. Christie is beloved in the community and she’s got that quiet dignity reminiscent of Helen Mirren. She scores a narrow victory here.

Best Supporting Actor: Javier Bardem, No Country For Old Men

He’s the face of the movie and his performance is terrifyingly brilliant. It’s a lock.

Best Supporting Actress: Tilda Swinton, Michael Clayton

This is the one prediction most likely to change between now and Saturday. Amy Ryan’s performance is superb, but Swinton hails from the bigger, more widely seen film. It’ll be close, close, close, but the BAFTA win may have been enough to put Swinton over the top.

Best Original Screenplay: Diablo Cody, Juno

This is a no-brainer. Juno really deserves a lot more awards than just this one, but that’s the way it often goes for the “comedies.”

Best Adapted Screenplay: The Coens, No Country For Old Men

If you have read the book, you would realize it really is a tough one to adapt. The lack of an alternative also seals another win for the brothers duo.

Best Animated Feature: Ratatouille

Some even thought Ratatouille was good enough to be nominated for Best Picture. Pixar deserved to win last year for Cars and it will win this year.

Best Foreign Language Film: The Counterfeiters

It’s got the general consensus thing going in its favor, which in this category, is usually good enough.

Best Documentary Feature: No End In Sight

Academy voters aren’t too fond of Michael Moore, so the Iraq War picture, a more subtle indictment of Bush, gets the nod.

Documentary Short: Freehold

Once again, it’s the consensus choice, which trumps other factors in our opinion.

Live Action Short: Tanghi Argenti

The story is moving enough to capture people’s hearts, and quirky enough to stand out in people’s minds. That kind of combination is tough to beat.

Animated Short: Peter and the Wolf

Stop and go animation looks awesome and is making a comeback, and here’s betting the voters are wowed by it.

Art Direction: There Will Be Blood

This is one of the toughest of the night. Atonement looks pretty and Sweeney Todd has the lavish sets, but There Will Be Blood leaves a lasting impression and it also won the Art Director’s Guild, which at least means something.

Cinematography: There Will Be Blood

This category often matches up with Art Direction, and with Roger Deakins splitting his vote between No Country and Assasination of Jesse James, we think Ellswit gets rewarded for his unique camera style in Blood.

Editing: The Bourne Ultimatum

Yes, this category often matches up with Best Picture, but not this year. Anyone who’s watched Bourne will remember the sensational, quick action-shot edits. And plus, we just don’t think the Academy will be so generous as to gives the Coens FOUR Oscars in one night.

Costume Design: Atonement

This award usually goes to a period piece and everyone who’s seen this film remembers Keira Knightley’s beautiful green dress. That should be enough to get it past Sweeney Todd.

Original Score: Atonement

It’s the best score of the bunch, and also a Best Picture contender, similar to Jan AP Kaczmarek’s Finding Neverland from a few years back. But if voters find that whole typewriter thing annoying, Ratatouille could slip in there.

Original Song: Falling Slowly, Once

The Enchanted three-way split will favor one of the other nominees, and here’s betting it’s the more widely seen and heard song from Once than August Rush.

Makeup: La Vie En Rose

They did a terrific job on Marion Cotillard and otherwise honestly, have you seen who the other nominees are?!

Sound: Transformers

It’s the best of the bunch and voters this year really do want to give it to Kevin O’Connell. Even Susan Lucci had to win sometime, right?

Sound Editing: Transformers

Call it a hunch. Transformers is technically perfect.

Visual Effects: Transformers

Just remember how you giddy and in awe you felt when you saw the car change into a robot the first time in the film. Nothing can compare to Transformers!
