oscars

Throughout awards season, I have making my predictions for who will win certain prizes and now we have reached the biggie  – the Oscars. I can’t imagine there will be any surprises but click inside to refresh your memory on the main nominees and see who I think will win vs. who I actually want to win.

Here are the main list of nominees and my predictions. UPDATE: The winners are in bold.

Best Picture
Arrival
Fences
Hacksaw Ridge
Hell or High Water
Hidden Figures
La La Land – WILL WIN/WANT TO WIN
