Oscar Predictions 2018

Well, here we are again…it’s the day before the Oscar nominations are announced and I’m going out on a limb with my picks for who will get nominations early Tuesday morning.  It’s been a good year for movies though I’m a bit puzzled how some films and performances have gone the distance while others haven’t even been a part of the conversation.  Always a little bitter with the sweet, right?

Thanks again to Shane over at Film Actually for organizing a little contest between online critics!

Here are my picks for the 2018 Oscar Nominations…keep in mind these aren’t necessarily who I WANT to be nominated.  I’ll talk more about that tomorrow after the nominations are announced.
