Oscar 2019: My Predictions

500 Days Of Film Reviews The 2019 Oscar Nominees

The 91st Academy Awards take place on Sunday. After months of debate and speculation, we will finally know who will win what. Of course, who we want to win is not always the same as who will eventually take home an Oscar. For example, my favourite film of 2018 (Leave No Trace) did not recieve a single nomination.


Nonetheless, it is still fun to try to predict what the Academy will decide on the night. So, here are my Oscar 2019 predictions...
