2014 Academy Awards : My winners

On January, 16th the Oscar Nominations have been announced! Since the rumors on who could win started even before the list was disclosed, I thought it would be fun to make my own selection. 
First things first, I didn't watch all the movies that are nominated (some of them haven't been released yet) and I'm not basing my opinions on who won at the Golden Globes or at any other award event, so my picks will be on my personal feelings and who I think deserves it most!
