Oscars Predictions 2017

oscarpredictions2017

With the Oscars coming up within a couple of weeks I figured it was time for me to make predictions once more. I have to say, this is a very good year for the Oscars. Much better than last year, that is for sure. This is how I plan on making these predictions: I will state who I think will most likely win, along with who I think deserves to win. Just for fun, I am throwing in a “Wildcard” category, where I will choose someone who could possibly sneak up and take home the award. I have not seen any of the documentaries, short films, or foreign films, so those will be absent from my list. Feel free to share who you think will win, or deserves to win. Without further ado, here are my predictions:
