88th Academy Awards: Predictions – Motion Picture Thoughts #6

MOTION PICTURE THOUGHTS

I love the Academy Awards. There’s just something special about that show, even if I don’t think they pick the right winners each and every year. Often times I find myself agreeing with the nominees for the BAFTAs instead, but only the Academy Awards can make me straight-up giddy to see accolades being handed out. Today I’m trying to predict the winners of each and every category!

I’ll preface my list by stating again that this isn’t a list of what films I think should win, these are simply predictions for the award show. However, if there is an asterisk ( * ) next to my prediction, then that means I think that the film or actor in question should win. Let’s get to it!
