Final Oscar Predictions

Will Three Billboards win big?

If you've followed the Oscar race this year, it's a tight race for Best Picture. The Shape of Water and Three Billboards outside Ebbing, Missouri are out in front, but Get Out, Lady Bird, and even Dunkirk have a shot in the preferential ballot. My picks are relatively safe, but I'm hoping for a few surprises. I'm close to picking The Shape of Water, but I've gone for Three Billboards. Good luck to everyone else predicting. Also, look out for the 2017 CinSpec Awards next week.

  1. I just want Rockwell and Billboards to win. Literally, that is all I want :)

    1. Haha, I'm Team Dafoe, but it will be awesome seeing Rockwell with an Oscar.

  2. Heard like this bother with every category having a frontrunner. It's actually kinda boring haha

    1. Yeah, this year isn't very exciting, except for Best Picture.
