Oscar Predictions

Posted by mogway on Sunday March 4, 2018

Not that I have any influence on the voting or anything, I like to play the Oscar predicting game, after seeing all the best pictures and some of the other movies I think I have a good perspective on them. I’ll try not to be biased but hey we all have our personal favorites XD. The winners will be in bold, I won’t predict movies in categories I haven’t seen anything from, and if I feel like there was a snub I’ll tell ya too! (list can be found at Oscars 2018) If you want to see my short thoughts on the Oscars best pictures go here and here

What we’ve learned this year from the best pictures: Old is new, movies about historic events are hot or movies that take place in the past. Sex with animals is okay, just as sex with a minor of the same gender under the roof of the minors parents, racism is good.
