Oscars predictions

Oscars 2017 – The Predictions

Here again, are we? Alright…

As a quick (and by now fairly standard) pre-cusor, I should mention that I sadly haven’t seen a bunch of these yet. A lot of this is sheer guess work. I’ve also omitted a few categories about which I literally have no idea (haven’t seen any of the documentaries, for example), and added the odd personal preference.

Anyway, enjoy – and check back on February 28th to see how wrong I was!
