Predicting The Academy Awards 2015


The main focus for this blog has always been cinema. My father introduced me to all sorts of films when I was very young – and I’ve been hooked ever since. On Twitter I call myself an amateur film critic – and that, of course, means I’ll be trying to predict the Oscars – the Academy Awards 2015.

Now, like last year, I’ll be going over each and every category and saying who I think wins, as well as who I hope wins. For the complete look at the Oscar Nominations, press here. Obviously, I don’t agree with the nominations – so for my own section on ‘I’m Jeffrey Rex Awards’ go here.

Some of the awards feature films I simply haven’t seen, and some even have no film that I’ve seen – particularly the Documentary Shorts and Live-Action shorts – for those I’ll only guess.
