WELCOME TO MY OSCAR PREDICTION CENTER!


If you know me, you know that I am OBSESSED with the Academy Awards (aka, the Oscars). Like, beyond obsessed. And if you know I’m obsessed with the Oscars, you probably know I love making lists even more.
So… I’m introducing my official OSCAR PREDICTION CENTER & FILM BLOG on my website!

My Oscar Prediction Center is where I’ll keep an updated list of my current predictions for the upcoming Oscar season. I’ll give my top 5 picks (top 10 for Best Picture) for what I think will be on the final ballot, and another 5 picks for what will be the Next In Line…
I’ll also post The Big Snub That Should Make It… which will be my opinion on a nominee that doesn’t really have a chance of getting a nomination, but absolutely should.

My Film Blog is where I’ll post occasional reviews, reactions, lists, and thoughts on recent trailers and news!

You can find both of these tabs at the very bottom of my website!

I started this list the day after this years Academy Awards, and have been updating it weekly.
But instead of just putting my predictions on my personal Notes which nobody sees, I’ve decided to publish them!
If you’re wondering how accurate I am with my predictions… my Way Too Early Oscar Ballot for the 91st Academy Awards last year had an average of 2.5 out of the 5 nominees who ended up on the final ballot.

So if you’re a fellow Oscar pundit, be sure to check this page weekly!
