91st Academy Awards – The Final Predictions

Let me state clearly, I might get half of these correct and usually I miss one, maybe two categories, but 2018 has been such a wonky year, I truly do not know who is going to win. Really, I suppose no one does, but especially this year, I admit I just do not have a grand sense of who will take home the Oscar. The list offers who I firmly believe will win (as firm as I could manage), who should be based on my own opinion and who might prove a spoiler and sneak in for the win. For those I believe should Win, I often go outside of the nominations, because some of the years best films and achievements were left out. Understand I do not see the short films, either documentary or live action, so of course, neither are included.
