by at . Comments

Happy Academy Awards day, movie fans!

With the 2013 Oscars airing tonight on ABC - and viewers anxious to either praise or tear apart host Seth MacFarlane - THG is here with our annual bold predictions for the ceremony.

Who WILL win? Who SHOULD win? Read our take below and sound off with your own...

2013 Oscars

BEST PICTURE
Will Win: Argo.
Should Win: Silver Linings Playbook. Many consider it too simple of a movie to win, but the performances are incredible and it's simply entertainment at its finest.

BEST DIRECTOR
Will win: Steven Spielberg, Lincoln.
Should win: Ang Lee, Life of Pi. Have you read that book? It's uncanny this was turned into a coherent, enjoyable film.

BEST ACTOR
Will win: Daniel Day-Lewis, Lincoln.
Should win: Daniel Day-Lewis, Lincoln. The clear favorite for a very good reason.

BEST ACTRESS
Will win: Jessica Chastain, Zero Dark Thirty.
Should win: Naomi Watts, The Impossible. A memorable performance in a truly harrowing tale, which is based on a very real, scary story.

BEST SUPPORTING ACTOR
Will win: Robert De Niro, Silver Linings Playbook.
Should win: Christoph Waltz, Django Unchained. Come on. Who doesn't adore this guy?!?

BEST SUPPORTING ACTRESS
Will win: Anne Hathaway, Les Misérables.
Should win: Helen Hunt, The Sessions. Yes, Hathaway sang on song, really, really well. But give us Hunt's more featured, layered performance in what we hope will be the evening's biggest upset.
