My Oscar Nomination Predictions

Well, awards season is upon us for 2018. The 90th Annual Academy Award nominations will be announced Tuesday, January 23rd. Here are my predictions for the top 6 categories. The most interesting thing about this year is that there is no clear front runner at this point, which is unusual given that last year at this time La La Land and Moonlight were already scooping up most of the accolades.

These are subject to change before the announcement on the 23rd. The winners will be announced on Sunday, March 4, 2018 on ABC-TV, with Jimmy Kimmel again taking the hosting duties.

Who are your favorites?
