Oscar 2013 Predictions - Best Actress: Jennifer Lawrence, Jessica Chastain, and Emanuelle Riva Are Front Runners (POLL)

The Best Actress race has always been one of the most contentious categories in Oscar history as there are usually two front runners in the race. In 2012 Meryl Streep and Viola Davis split the critics and awards organizations and in 2010 Meryl Streep battled with Sandra Bullock. Other examples include the 2009 contest between Meryl Streep and Kate Winslet and the 2008 race featuring Marion Cotillard and Julie Christie. The ultimate winner was always the actress portraying a real life person or the winner of the BAFTA award. This year, three actresses have split pundits, critics' circles, and awards ceremonies.

Oscars 2013 Best Picture Race - Why 'Lincoln' Will Not Win The Top Prize On Feb. 24

Not too long ago, pundits expected Steven Spielberg's "Lincoln" to runaway with the Oscars. The film was nominated for 12 Academy Awards including the essential Editing, Director, and Best Picture nods. The director nomination was the major key to "Lincoln's" race as other front-runners "Zero Dark Thirty" and "Argo" were ignored in this race. However, "Lincoln" has not picked up the steam it was expected to garner and its chances of winning the Best Picture Oscar are looking increasingly slim.

Oscar 2013 Predictions: 'Les Miserables' Leads the Makeup and Hairstyling Award with 'The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey,' and 'Hitchcock' Among the Nominees (VIDEO)

The Best Makeup and Hairstyling award has been one of the most unpredictable awards to date, as there are barely any precursor awards. The academy usually picks the best makeup based on how much prosthetics are used throughout film and they never go for subtle makeup. The category also remains the only race in the awards to only chose three nominees. Previous winners include "The Iron Lady," "The Wolfman," "Star Trek," and "The Curious case of Benjamin Button."

Oscar 2013 Predictions: 'Life of Pi,' 'Skyfall' and 'Django Unchained' Among Best Cinematography Nominees

The cinematography category has changed over the past three years as big Hollywood films have dominated the award. The accolade recognizes the exceptional camera work in a film. The Academy used to recognize art films like “Slumdog Millionaire,” “There will Be Blood” and “Pan’s Labyrinth.” However, recently it has swayed towards bigger films “Avatar,” “Hugo,” and “Inception.” Additionally, the past five winners in the category were nominated for Best Picture. As a result out of the nominees it seems that only three films have a chance of winning the category.
