With mere days to go before Sunday’s Academy Awards, the presenters are rehearsing, Wolfgang Puck is creating a memorable menu, Oscars party hosts are finalizing their punny appetizers (Can You Ever Forgive Meat, anyone?) and the last crystals are being applied to the set. And though you don’t have to do quite as much prep as the average actress, who is likely undergoing an intensive skincare regimen this week, you do want to get your ballots printed and distributed so you can dominate your office pool or dazzle your party guests.

Without a host or a clear front-runner in many categories, the Oscars are sure to be unpredictable – so if you want a little guidance as you fill our downloadable ballot out, we’ve got predictions and everything else to know about the show here. (Check it out for all the details on how to watch, who you’ll see and what’s already known about the show!) And if these A-listers reunite on the red carpet, we’ll all go home winners.

Ready to make your picks? Download a copy of our ballot here, then tune in to the 91st Annual Academy Awards, which will air live Feb. 24 on ABC at 8 p.m. ET.
