The 88th Annual Academy Award Predictions

imageThe biggest night of the year for Hollywood is upon us. Everyone from casual fans to big time movie buffs, have opinions on the Oscars, whether it is predictions or having disdain for the awards themselves. As much as I love the Oscars, I also understand those who despise the entire essence of the show.

This has turned out to be one of my favorite years for all the nominated films in all of the categories, despite the controversy surrounding, there are many, many wonderful films deserving of awards. Here are my predictions for tonight’s big show.

  1. Great post. Some are very obvious, of course, Leo for Best Actor and Inside Out for Best Animated. I would also pick Spotlight for Best Picture, as I think the Academy is still too conservative to vote for Room.

    1. Aside from Bridge Of Spies (which is still a good movie) I think this years nominees for picture is one of the strongest in a long time
