On Monday, I threw down the gauntlet for the fourth year in a row to predict the eventual nominees in the “Big 8” categories (Best Picture, Best Director, the four acting categories, and the two screenplay awards) and, boy, did I nail it. In total, I predicted 38-of-44 correctly for 86% accuracy, with two perfect categories of 5-out-of-5 and all the Best Picture nominees. That’s my best year yet.
My assured confidence in predicting the nominees will be easily carried over to guessing the eventual winners. I’ll save my reasoning and full analysis for my annual Oscar prediction articles coming next month.
