Oscars 2017: Winner Predictions

0

Given the state of things – and let’s leave it at that – this year’s Oscars race will be one for the history books. In all my years of doing this, I don’t think I’ve ever been more torn about filling out a predictions ballot than this year. Checking boxes off my ballot for my work pool caused more anxiety than I can ever remember for something so trivial. But for solidarity, I will unleash my ballot unto you, the Internet, so I can officially lock in my predictions before the Academy Awards this Sunday.
