At long last, the 86th Academy Awards – celebrating the year 2013 in film – have finally arrived. In just a matter of moments, the history books will be updated to include the names of this year’s newly-crowned Oscar winners, who will be enshrined in a very exclusive club, forever.

Ahead of this year’s ceremony, I, SportsGuy515, one-half of Team FORCED PERSPECTIVE, will give my picks for the 10 Best Films of 2013, as well as my predictions for who will win each of the main awards, as well as who SHOULD win, having been able to watch all the nominated films over the past 24-hours at the AMC Best Picture Marathon in New York City.

With that, let’s get on with the show!
