Lists

Predicting the 2019 Oscar Nominees

The official nominations for the 91st Academy Awards will be announced on January 22nd. Until then, obsessed film fanatics like myself are stuck with nothing better to do than compile our own lists of who we think will make the cut. I should mention that I left out the categories for short animated and short documentary and just stuck with the bigger-picture mainstream categories. I would also like to mention that I went a little bold with a few of my predictions, but hey, you only live once, right?

And the nominees for the 91st Academy Awards will be…
