Oscars Watch: 92nd Academy Awards Winners

“Parasite” and Bong Joon-Ho won big at the 92nd Academy Awards, taking home a total of four awards including Best Picture, Best Directing, Best International Feature Film, and Best Original Screenplay.

Oscars Watch: 92nd Academy Award Predictions

I have seen every film nominated this year, including the shorts, and the below predictions are a meld of what’s been winning, what I want to win, and what I think will win. There’s upsets every year and the pundits never get everything 100% right, so I try to mix up some of my picks with ones I prefer or ones where my gut tells me something different than what the experts are picking. These are my best guesses, so take them for what they’re worth. If you need a disclaimer, just know that I’ve never won my prediction ballot at work.

88th Academy Award Winners

Listen, I can’t be mad because the same thing happened a few years ago when “12 Years A Slave” won having only won Best Screenplay and Best Supporting Actress, while “Gravity” had taken home 7 Oscars including Best Directing. So “The Revenant” wins Best Directing, Best Cinematography, and Best Leading Actor, yet does not pull off Best Picture. I do know which film I’ll … Read More 88th Academy Award Winners

Since most of my votes went with “Lincoln”, my final tally was a little off, but I still got 17 categories right, which I choose to believe is rather good for such an unpredictable year. Although I don’t feel “Argo” was the obvious choice for Best Picture, especially without any acting or directing nominations, I refuse to be bitter about it and will simply … Read More 85th Academy Award Winners
