Final Oscar (Nominee) Predictions – 2019

What a year. So many great and diverse films. I’m still powering through many of them, but it is probably one of my favorite movie-years of this decade.

The Academy, however, will love some of the lesser films *cough* Bohemian Rhapsody *cough*, regardless many of the predictions seemed a little less complicated this year.

Without further ado, here they are:
