2015 Oscar Predictions


Well, everyone. It’s finally here! The biggest night of the year and needless to say, it’s going to be quite an interesting one. Not just with Chris Rock hosting and whatnot, but also due to the fact that it’s not really known who is going to win Best Picture, or a few others. But in all honesty, none of it matters, because what really matters is who wins, who loses and most importantly, who pulls a Travolta.

Without further ado, here are my picks for tonight’s Oscars. Let me know what you think of them down below!

    I love the fourth lines you got going on, and the best picture “IF THE ACADEMY REALLY WANTED TO GIVE THE PEOPLE WHAT THEY WANT: Mad Max: Fury Road” rings so true with people I talk to who have actually seen it haha. Just a few more hours!

    You were almost 4/4 with the actors, nicely done! I’m so glad Leo finally got his Oscar, more for his own feelings than as a result of his performance in The Revenant.
