My Oscar Nomination Predictions, 2017

It’s time for me to dust off the ol’ blog and post some Oscar-related #content! Been too long, strangers!

Once again, if you’re reading this, and you don’t follow me on Twitter or on Letterboxd… um, well, please do so. It’d be cool. Instagram, too. Why not.

If I recall correctly, I did really poorly with Oscar Nomination predictions last year– I’ve never topped 75% (it’s those damned sound categories– every year with those things). Here’s hoping it’s this year!

Also, keep an eye out as I’ll likely also be posting shortly what the nominees would be in an ideal world– a fun exercise in futility for us to contemplate!
