Predicting The 93rd Academy Awards: The Winners

My Attempt At Predicting The Winners For The 93rd Academy Awards

That time has come, the 93rd Academy Awards, the Super Bowl of film awards shows, will be go down next Sunday as they choose the best from film in the year 2020 and the first two months from 2021. Everyone is attempting to turn in their predictions for who will win and who will come up short and I’ve decided to get in on the action. Here are my week before official predictions for all the winners broken into the 23 categories and placed in order of my confidence level of that choice winning the prize. One final reminder that these are all predictions made with an actual attempt to get these right, not my own personal view of who or what should win among the nominees - if that were the case this would be a dramatically different outlook. Now, without further adieu, my predictions for the winners in all 23 categories of the 93rd annual Academy Awards…
