Already, this year’s Oscars ceremony is making waves—and Faye Dunaway hasn’t misread a single envelope yet. Don’t make us explain the bonehead decision (since reversed!) to drop four categories from the telecast, including Best Cinematography and Best Editing, not that those arts are central to cinema or anything.

If you’re playing in a pool, print out our handy Oscar ballot. We’ll be live-tweeting every bit of buzz from the show @TimeOutNewYork. Tune in Sunday February 24 on ABC, 8pm ET. In the meantime, here are 15 (eerily prescient) predictions for your ballot—last year, we got 9 out of 10 right.
