Oscars: Who Will Win and Who Should Win?

Oscars: Who Will Win and Who Should Win?

Well, not that anyone asked me but since I have been a bit busy on an #OscarRun, I figured I’d weigh in with my thoughts on who will win and who should win at this year’s Oscar awards. Heck, they’re already on the red carpet. I’d better type quickly, right?

 

I have my complete 2019 ballot copy already filled out but for the 10 categories for which I focused on seeing nominees in the #OscarRun, here are my predictions and personal picks!

 

Here is my key:
My prediction for winner is in bold with a plus sign at the end (Winner +).
My choice is in italics with two asterisks after it (My Pick  **).
And if they happen to be one and the same, it will be in bold AND italics with BOTH symbols behind it like this (Winner and My Pick  +  **).

 

Got it? Let’s go!
