Predicting The Oscar Nominees

by Mitch Burns


oscars-2016-poster-410x600

I didn’t have a lot of time to make my predictions, and I’m fairly confident in my choices, but I’m excited to see how things shake out tomorrow morning. I did put a few hours into my predictions, and they may turn out to be quite reliable, but I promise I will put a lot more time into my predictions of the actual show. My Predictions are in a general order of who I think are safer bets, to who aren’t as guaranteed.

The Oscar Nominees will be announced live Thursday, January 14th, at 8:30 am ET (5:30 am PT). You can watch the nominees be announced on Youtube (Click Here). There will be two rounds of nominee announcements: The first round of nominees will be announced by Directors Guillermo del Toro and Ang Lee, these will be the more technical awards. The Second round of nominees will be announced by Academy Award President Cheryl Boone Isaacs and John Krasinski, and these will be the acting awards, Best Picture nominees and more.

Good Luck to everyone else predicting, can’t wait to bitch with everyone tomorrow about who was snubbed!
