Final Oscar Predictions

It’s been an exciting awards season. I managed to see all of the major films I wanted to by the time that Golden Globe nominations were announced, missing just six films total. Since then, I’ve screened every shortlisted documentary, international feature, and short film. I’m predicting exactly two films that I haven’t seen to be nominated, and those are both Marvel movies I think will show up in the visual effects category. I feel ready and I’m hoping that it will be full of great surprises and not too many unfortunate snubs. I’ve written plenty about every category and I don’t think I have much left to say. I’m eager to see what makes the cut!

I’m not getting up at 5:18am tomorrow to watch the nominations, but it’s the first thing I’ll be doing when I get up a bit later. As soon as I am awake, you can expect detailed reactions by category as soon as I’m up and start posting. Click on category headings below for full analysis for each race, and film titles to read my reviews! Leave your thoughts and predictions in the comments!
