It’s Oscar season again and I’m wildly unprepared to make these selections. Seriously, I’ve seen hardly any of these movies. None of them really interest me all that much. But I made it through college by mostly guessing so I have no doubts it’ll work here. Besides I went 14/18 on my picks last year. So obviously if you are betting in Vegas, bet on my picks. And share the money please.

Let’s start with the most important thing that occurred during the 2016 Oscars- I was 14/18 on my predictions.  That’s pretty strong if I do say so myself.  I got all of the major categories correct with the exception of best supporting actor (more on that later) and I don’t really feel bad about missing 3 technical awards.  Although now I’ve learned my lesson and should have just assumed Mad Max would win everything.

With the Academy Awards tonight, I am giving you guys my predictions for the winners.  I have separated them into 2 different categories: what I want to win and what I think will win, which are usually very different.  Before we get to it I am posting links to every Oscar nominated movie I have seen and reviewed in case you want to go back and check them out:

Bonus Top 10 List for you guys this week in honor of the Oscars.  Sometimes the Academy gets the Best Picture right, sometimes they don’t. I’m looking at years where the wrong movie won Best Picture, in my opinion.  The qualifier was that the movie that should have won needed to have at least been nominated.  So even though clearly Top Gun should have won in ’86, Die Hard should have won in ’88, and Jurassic Park should have won in ’93, due to extreme oversights by the Academy, they weren’t even nominated.  I know… I can’t believe it either.  Anyway let’s get to the list.
