NGNG BAFTA Predictions...

So, at around 2AM the actual nominees are going to be announced and so I decided to post some last minute predictions.  I'm going REALLY 'no guts no glory' here with my 'The Impossible' love.  Putting that in over 'Skyfall' seems, in hindsight, really dumb, but I'm sticking to my guns.  Where's the fun in second guessing and being safe.  Supporting Actor is a real mindfuck.  I went with Wilkinson (total wishful thinking) and McGregor (how has he not happened yet?) over McConaughey and Redmayne who could happen, and I'm not feeling Bardem, even though I know that it is a mistake to leave him off and yet still predict Dench.
