Part of my reasoning for my prediction in this category is my confidence, or at least until recently, in the Best Picture category. If “12 Years a Slave” wins Best Picture, it needs to win elsewhere. It’s not guaranteed a win in actor and is losing its lead in supporting actress. Adapted Screenplay is probably their best bet, but I don’t think a film could only win one other award in addition to Best Picture. That’s why I think “12 Years a Slave” is going to upset in Best Production Design similarly to “Lincoln” last year.
Still, the general consensus is usually for the film with the most elaborate sets and that is by far “The Great Gatsby”.

Will Win: “12 Years a Slave”
Could Win: “The Great Gatsby”
Should Win: “Her” (The slight and understated vision of the future was so well thought out and executed.)
Should have been nominated: “The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug” (Seriously though.)
