Final 90th Academy Awards Nomination Predictions – Special Features #14

In a couple of days, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences will reveal the full list of nominees for the 90th Academy Awards. That means that it is finally time to unveil my list of predicted nominees. I’ve tried to predict the nominated films for every category excluding the short film awards.

Okay, so. There really isn’t a need for a huge explanation of how this thing will go down. It is pretty self-explanatory. Films are listed in alphabetical order, except for the Best Picture category, in which I’ve listed ten films (but I, ultimately, don’t believe we’ll get ten nominated films there).
