And The Oscar Goes To...

The Oscars are here! The Oscars are here! I'm so excited for the show on Sunday. I've seen almost all of the nominated movies and performances and I'm ready to cast my votes. Unfortunately I didn't enter a contest and I'm not attending a party this year, so my predictions are going to waste. 

Red marks who I think will win, Check mark symbol is how I would vote, and * denotes a movie I haven't seen.

I have seen nothing this year. Like even worse than normal.

I haven't seen anything this year. I did see Star Wars and Hunger Games though. That has to count for something. Ha!

I was surprised that Brie did not win, but I didn't see the Danish Girl so I guess I need to! SO happy for Leo!

I love that so many of our preferences lined up so perfectly.

Confession: Spotlight is the first Best Picture winner that I didn't see before it won since 1998. How weird is that?
