Second Round of Oscar Predictions for 2018-19 Season

0 Submitted by on Wed, 28 November 2018, 19:42

Things are moving quickly with the Oscar season. The first major precusor winners are being announced over the next few weeks, which will help shape the race going forward significantly. So before we see which movies get lifted up in clout or take a beating as we head towards the end of the year, here is another round of my predictions on who could end up on the main shortlist. As usual, short film categories will not be predicted yet because I have no freaking clue what is eligible yet.
